We chose Barracuda Backup because the updates are very competitively priced and a three-year maintenance plan was included. The fact that you don’t need to have individual client access licenses for different types of servers and that you can have an unlimited amount of backup is great. The benefit of linking up to the Barracuda cloud control was an unexpected bonus because it allows me to make changes when I’m off-site.
The roll-out was a breeze. The interface is similar across all products from Barracuda Networks and is really user friendly and easy to configure. We had it up and running within a couple of hours and the first backup was completed within eight or nine hours. This was a huge improvement on our previous tape-storage solution, which took around three days for data to be transferred.
