"There are many backup options available in this solution. For example, you are able to do backups of servers, email, OST files, and users. This is a complete backup solution which is very good."
"The most valuable feature of Arcserve UDP is live replication."
"The most valuable feature is the duplication."
"We are satisfied with Arcserve UDP. The most important feature that we use and why we choose this product is the RHA feature."
"One of the things that I do like about it is that it has a very good deduplication feature."
"The standard backup and restore feature is most used."
"Arcserve has a feature called virtual standby (VSB), which has been very helpful because I already have a hot standby copy of my critical infrastructure. If something breaks, I can spin up that virtual standby copy in less than five minutes and ensure that my data is available to everyone and that business continuity is maintained."
"I would recommend it if there is a general case."
"The initial setup was very easy."
"One of the most valuable features is security and connectivity to the data."
"I like that it's a simple system."
"The feature that I have found the most valuable is that it is easy to create a backup by using Azure Backup. It also has a good user interface and nice features for sending notifications when any backup fails or there is a change in the status of virtual machines."
"The most valuable feature is the ease in which it backs up our data."
"We are happy with this product and have not found any issues while using it."
"I like that it's a stable solution and their support is good. I think Microsoft's commercial force is superior."
"The solution can use a lot of bandwidth when the scheduling is not done, it should auto-schedule itself. For example, if there are 50 users connected in the network at 12 o'clock and the backup is not scheduled. At this time the network offices are going to have performance issues when it is doing a backup. Having a feature to auto-schedule a time when the network is not being used often would be beneficial."
"Based on my experience, whenever we need support, there are difficulties with communication when trying to resolve the issue."
"I had an issue with Arcserve UDP during the failover and the secondary machine didn't get back online, even though it ran automatically. I faced the issue during a crisis situation. However, I haven't faced such a problem again."
"Its interface can be improved. I find it unintuitive."
"We could not go into granular details of retrieving backup information."
"Arcserve UDP is in the middle range of complexity. The interface can be developed a little bit more to be user-friendly."
"We are looking at scaling up to the cloud and using immutable copies on the cloud. Arcserve UDP 8.0 does have the immutable feature supporting AWS, but I'm looking for multi-cloud support. So, I'm waiting for Arcserve to release that in the next release."
"The speed of restores should be improved. We have found the speed of large restores rather slow."
"Lacks an AI system that would enable easier upgrading of the hardware."
"Technical support can be slow to respond at times."
"They need to improve the frequency of the backup. You can only backup one to three times a day. It would be better to back up continuously throughout the day."
"We would like to see some kind of notification given to the user that a file was not synchronized well or what may have happened."
"I would like to see better integration with more products, and more services."
"We have a concern with the backup when were are working with VMs that are running in Barracuda Firewall because it usually fails."
"The length of time it takes to restore is our main source of frustration. It would be beneficial to shorten the time it takes."
"I would like to see more automation, integration, and security. The price could be better."

Reviews from Real Users
There are a number of characteristics that make Azure Backup extremely effective. Two of these are the flexibility that it offers users and its overall effectiveness.
PeerSpot user Ayman Y., an IT manager at NOMAC, notes all of the different backup options that Azure Backup offers. He writes, “It has many features. First of all, you can schedule a backup for the client as you like. You can do a backup from the whole virtual machine as an image. You can do a backup only from files and folders. It has every option. All options are available for the backup, for the restore, for the bandwidth utilization to do backups, even virtual machines or a physical machine. If you need to do a backup of the whole image from the virtual machine, all these options are there.”
PeerSpot user Muzammil M., a senior operations engineer at the AlGosaibi Group, notes the effectiveness of Azure Backup when he writes, “Azure Backup is good because it is entirelycloud-based, which means that you can be 99.9% sure that your backup is safe. This is the reason that I suggest its use for companies that need to back up critical data.”
