We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The Granular Restore of SQL feature has been a lifesaver more times than I can count. One of the main reasons for looking at Carbonite was their support for platforms like AIX and AS/400 Series.""Technical support handled all our issues quickly and effectively.""It does not slow down your computer or use a lot of resources as it works.""Easy verification of things is the most valuable feature.""It seems reliable and easy to use."

"I can confidently say that I have managed more than 30 or 50 appliances over different time periods, and yet I never had a single hardware failure.""NetBackup is based on really good architectural hardware, and Veritas has the best backup and replication technology in the world.""The solution has a very easy-to-navigate user interface.""It has a lot of very good features. The virtual tape library (VTL) feature is most valuable. Overall, it is easy to use.""The policy-based backup feature is very helpful.""This is a good backup interconversion solution because all the masters and the targets backups are on the same system. It is easy to administrate for a single point of access for clients.""The reporting is very good compared to other tools.""There are a lot of new features that operate to protect the data from ransomware attacks. They launched the Veritas/Appliances to protect our data. Veritas has been doing its job well."

Cons
"The support for object storage isn't quite there yet. Its public cloud support can be improved. I would love to see the public cloud support for object storage, and it would be great, but what I always hear from the folks at Carbonite is that in a lot of cases, it directly competes with their cloud offering. So, I don't know when or where that will go or if that will go anywhere, but we are hopeful to see something. The dashboard is a little outdated. If they gave it a facelift and put some better design around their dashboard, that would be tremendous. I generally care less about the visual aesthetics of an application as long as it does what it needed to do, which is true in the case of this solution. We also have the Microsoft 365 platform. Because they're two separate platforms, I have to log in to my Microsoft platform to manage it, and I have to log into my Carbonite server backup platform to manage it. Having these two coexist together in one management console is really what we're looking for, but we went for it knowing this. We also knew that there would be some integration coming down the road. So, we're again hoping to see some of that coming in 2021.""The only thing that I would like to see improved is related to marketing. Currently, it is very difficult to find the right paper and stuff for me. Their marketing department should provide better information because currently, it is very difficult to find information on the internet. It was bought over by OpenText, and you won't be able to find a lot of information about this solution on their site. They should also provide training facilities for commercial purposes. Some of my colleagues recently went for pilot training, and they were technical. If I want to get trained, the training has to be more commercial. Currently, there is no such training for users like me.""They do not yet have USB recovery but they are adding it in coming releases."

"The price needs to be improved because it is really expensive.""The configuration can sometimes be tricky during implementation.""The solution could improve by providing more integration and security.""The upgrade process of the solution needs to be improved since it is extremely complicated, especially without the benefit of a support person who can guide one through it.""The desirability of appliance solutions is dwindling in the marketplace.""The reporting feature can be improved.""The monitoring could be a bit better.""It would be a better solution if we were able to make more reports in regards to the backup system."
