Overall Satisfaction with Barracuda Backup

Barracuda backup is being used to backup Windows files servers, a Microsoft Exchange server, a Mac file server, and an SQL server. It allowed us to replicate backups offsite without having servers offsite. Prior to Barracuda backup, it was required to carry tapes offsite.
  • Barracuda's deduplication compression is really good to save space.
  • The process to restore files is very flexible and easy.
  • The backup dashboard has useful system information that is provided at glance.
  • The Barracuda portal can be accessed anywhere without configuring firewalls.
  • A better way to access network configurations.
  • A more robust error reporting.
  • The great thing about an appliance backup solution that is not a Windows based OS, is you don't have to worry as much about ransomware.
  • Although, the negative side to the appliance is if you outgrow it you have to replace the appliance. It does not have the capability to expand storage.
Barracuda's price point, and it didn't require additional servers and/or storage.
barracuda backup is well suited for bare-metal and file backups. The fact it doesn't interface with the hypervisor for virtual backups [means] it's not a true virtual machine backup appliance.
