Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"This product is extremely user-friendly and it is capable of performing large-scale archive/backup (five+ years worth). It is easy to store, maintain, and check backups.""One of the things that I do like about it is that it has a very good deduplication feature.""I would recommend it if there is a general case.""The ROI is very good because of the speed of the backup.""The recovery part of the product is very good.""Global deduplication is the best feature of this solution.""We are satisfied with Arcserve UDP. The most important feature that we use and why we choose this product is the RHA feature.""The solution has no limitations because it does backup for Linux and Windows."

"It's very stable.""The product alerts the security team about threats.""We now have the capability to recover a virtual machine without relying on the NFS system, but instead are able to use certain features provided by Commvault.""Great archive feature, OnePass, for the file system and Exchange servers.""I'm a big fan of the reporting. You can build your own reports; it's very customizable. You can have individual reports going to groups of people or individuals. You can have them go out multiple times a day. It's basically a free-for-all as far as reporting goes. If anybody wants a specific job report every day, you can build it, schedule it, and have it go out and never touched it again. It's pretty nice.""The most valuable features are the ease of use, the graphical interface, and it's high speed.""Security measures, including encryption and threat detection, contribute significantly to data protection, safeguarding against unauthorized access and cyber threats.""We can use it on-premises and in the cloud."

Cons
"We cannot restore each user's mailbox. Each user's mailbox should be independently restorable. Also, this solution is very slow. If you select all of the servers, it runs for a long time... It needs to be faster. Finally, If anything happens to one server we should be able to switch to another server.""We have to use a Microsoft hypervisor for installation which is expensive.""Its interface can be improved. I find it unintuitive.""The time to backup servers that sit in DMZ must be improved.""We could not go into granular details of retrieving backup information.""A lot of their new technologies are not very good.""The support could be more knowledgeable and faster.""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."

More Arcserve UDP Cons →

"Mostly controls, visibility, cost allocation.""They need to improve when it comes to large, video file archiving. They're good, but they have not met my expectations as a customer in this area.""We had some small issues with the reporting, but that was just a matter of fine-tuning the kinds of messages we receive by email. It was a little overwhelming in the initial configuration. So we reviewed our configuration with our partner and customized the reports so that we only get the important reports. I haven't seen any big issues or things that the solution is missing.""The product is expensive.""Commvault could make the product more cost-effective on the public cloud side. We are using this solution to back up whatever is still on-prem. We are not using it to back up what is on the public cloud because we have a native backup solution for that, which is provided by the vendor. As our footprint gets bigger, we will continue to evaluate this, but the last time that we did a cost analysis, the cost was not comparable to the solution that public clouds are offering.""There are two ways to use it and I prefer the web-based one over the app. I wish they were a little bit more matched in what they offer because the features aren't as available in the web-based interface as they are in the app.""The tool should revise its licensing.""The workflow has room for improvement."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I do not work with the pricing or licensing issues of the solution for our organization."
  • "We only have the maintenance of three standard UDP licenses. Each license is 50 Euro. There are some additional costs for the storage and software but it has nothing to do with the UDP."
  • "Normally our customers purchase the premium plus license, rather than the standard one, which provides more options."
  • "The price of this product is high and it should be lower."
  • "It is approximately $400 to purchase a virtual service outright."
  • "There is an annual license required for this solution and it is priced well."
  • "Pricing is most likely comparable."
  • "The retail fee is $1300 for a year for one server. Other than that, there is just the cost of your hardware."
  • More Arcserve UDP Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "If budget allows using the per socket license and not the agent based with per GB counter for Dedup is the way to go."
  • "There is now a subscription based licence option that, depending on your environment, could offer a more efficient method to licence the solution if you are OPEX cost driven rather than CAPEX."
  • "New licensing is easy and affordable."
  • "Licensing could be better explained. Sometimes, it's unclear what features are available in different licensing models."
  • "Compared to other competitors and vendors the pricing is fair."
  • "In my experience, compared to solutions like Veritas and Veeam, while they do have their technical pluses and minuses, Commvault can save you on average forty percent initially, and then twenty to twenty-five percent annually."
  • "The price could perhaps be lower as well."
  • "Our cost is around $20,000 per month. The previous year, it was around $30,000 per month. It now costs less because Commvault changed the licensing type for providers."
