I am a Barracuda partner and we manage multiple Barracuda Backup devices.

What do you like best?

Barracuda makes some great products, including their backup devices. We manage many of them for our clients and the replication from device to device works great for off-site storage. Their tech support is also top notch and fixes and issues in a very timely manner.

What do you dislike?

The replication from device to device is great but you can only replicate to a Barracuda Backup 490 and higher. We have some smaller clients that use the 190 and 390 models and it would be nice to be able to replicate from a 190 to a 390 but you can't.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is expensive but worth it in the long run.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using the Barracuda Backup boxes solves the backup problem for most of our clients and allows for a good retention time that you can customize. The replication between boxes benefits our clients so their critical data is stored on-site and off-site.

Admin and user of Barracuda backup

What do you like best?

Easy to setup and install. The agent software can be pushed through command line to multiple servers. Replication can be controlled well and backup schedules are really simple. The restore options are great and they are always pushing new firmware. Comes with support for Kroll OnTrack so you can do file level Exchange restores. It does offer de-duplication, which can save on space. The agent is exchange aware and SQL aware so it can truncate logs for you

What do you dislike?

Can be slow to replicate even with fast internet. Backups, when they fail, often provides vague errors. Support is helpful though as they can see logs behind the scenes. Retention policy is often hard to understand and can lead to data not being available for restore. Restoring data is also slow, baremetal restores are very slow and almost not worth it. Restoring files from the cloud is also not fast.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They are not easy to upgrade hard drive space so buy a bigger model then what you need

Backup Solutions that work!

What do you like best?

Ease of use and setup. GUI is very intuitive. Restore browser allows you options for restores.

What do you dislike?

Website can be slow at times, but for the most part there is nothing I do not like

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you size the appliance correctly the first time, we went too small initially and had to purchase the next size up, barracuda did give us a trade-in on the smaller device.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Saves us money on tapes and decreases the time we need for restores.

Excellent customer support

What do you like best?

Barracuda backup has provided us an easy method to back up file for DR as well as daily backups. The graphical interface is easy to use and manage. I like have all my clients at the click of a mouse. I like being able to check status reports. Barracuda support is reliable and they are efficient in telling me what the problem is.

What do you dislike?

The thing I dislike the most is how some of the setups require a lot more extensive work and they promise to sync everything for you. I've had to refer to their FAQ website a handful of times. I wish it had a link or help option right on the user interface.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are providing distaster recovery for our clients as well as weekly backup for our servers.

Very reliable and simple to use backup

What do you like best?

Once you set up your backups and schedules you only need to work on when you are notified of a failure. Typically when there is a failure it has to do with what you are backing up rather than the backup process itself. Upgrades are streamlined, update as desired and all of your client will be automatically updated. Also no software specific agents are needed.

What do you dislike?

Catching up to features on Exchange take a while. They just released message level backup for Exchange 2016 which was quite a wait.So if you are always on the edge of new features, you may want to verify that what you use is currently available to be backed up with all the features you want.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Backups were a huge issue for us. Not reliable and very time consuming to manage. Now it is substantially more efficient.
