The amount of data I can back up and send out to the cloud with ease.
The free agents, Vmware integration, the fact that I can spin up a recovery point and attache it to VMware right of the Backup device. Ease of setting up Backup sources and schedules.
This device also uses Global Deduplication so the local backup size is not as large as other vendors would create.
Support is great and they can easily get in to help with any issues you are experiencing and can also access parts that are in "Admin" areas to see what may be holding up a process or issues that you wouldn't be able to see.
The backups are fast and with VMware, they use CBT (Change Block Tracking) and it will only backup changed data.
It can backup MAC OS, Windows, VM, and Physical. This is a huge deal to me as Veeam would only do VMs up until recently and I still feel like the Global deduplication with the Barracuda is superior to most other devices or software.
The restore process is a little cumbersome. It can take ages to search if you are looking into a folder or drive that has a lot of previous restore points. The GUI needs a facelift in this department like the rest of the GUI has gotten.
Do your research and overbuy for the local device in storage as we outgrew ours quickly and had to really work with Barracuda to reduce the sizes of our backup.
This was not enough and we had to up the size. They did give us a device credit to turn in the old device though and worked with us on price.
We have an actual backup schedule now and continuity of getting them offsite to a secure location.
We used to perform Backup to disk with Veritas and there would always be a problem and some part would get missed or the backup would run long and run over and I would have to either cancel and take the drive out or just leave it and risk leaving the disk in over the weekend.
This backup pushes the backup offsite over a secured VPN tunnel instantly and also keeps a local encrypted copy of all those Could backups for quick recovery.
