6 years of faithful service, great customer support, until...
Kommentare: Barracuda's support has been the best we have ever experienced. The wait times are short, and their staff is based in the US so it was easy to communicate the issues. Overall we were reasonably pleased with the device and the company until our business needs had changed and we had to move to a different platform that provided more advanced tools. (We really didn't want to leave) This is where we feel (and perhaps any company that provides cloud services) that Barracuda turned evil. We have an on-prem appliance and rotate older emails to the Barracuda Cloud Archive service. A word of warning, Barracuda does not provide any way or tools to extract YOUR data from their cloud service. You can extract in bulk from the on-prem appliance from an SMB share. ALSO, if you don't maintain the minimum Energize Updates, they will shut off access to your own data stored on the Appliance. About 15 days after expiration, you will no longer be able to perform searches on the on-prem appliance, although you can still search and export from the cloud. You will have 30 days after terminating the cloud service to extract all your data. Our experience has been the cloud exports take a long time to complete, and they are spotty on the file downloads, sometimes they will not complete and you will have to start again. There is more to say about our experience with this process but there is not enough room to explain further. Proceed with caution..
Vorteile: The web interface was straight forward and it was easy to do searches. We liked the ability of our end users to be able to search their own archives.
Nachteile: Sometimes searches were slow, large exports were even slower. You could sometimes wait 30-60 seconds for results to come back. It seemed that the database could use indexing.

The Barracuda Archiver provides a easy to email archiving solution that integrates easily.
Kommentare: Less stress on main mail server. Easy set up of discovery to comply with retention policy. Easy intergation with Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, or IMAP email.
Vorteile: The Barracuda Archiver is a one piece solution that can be intergrated into an email system in about an hour. Pricing depends on storage and there is no charge for additional users. Email or attachments can be stubbed when using Exchange to greatly reduce the size of email on the system. An easy to use interface allows mail users to search for historical email quickly. It is also easy to setup polices for global removal of old email after retention period. Users can be set up based on LDAP directories or Active Directory. Barracuda support was excellent.
Nachteile: The device can slow down as it gets full since it is SATA based. Also, depending on the amount of data, recovery can be slow if data needs to be reindexed by the system. There is no automated way to rehydrate (reimport) stubbed email into the system if needed for transition.

Great and easy to use archiving solution.
Kommentare: This has allowed us to keep out Exchange footprint down to unto 400GB with 8 years worth of email.
Vorteile: We started off with the physical appliance and then migrated to the virtual, which was very painless. The search is fast and robust even with 3TB of email in a single appliance. It is rock solid as well.
Nachteile: The interface is a little clunky and could use an update. There are a few screens that are not all that intuitive and could use some better explanations. I do wish there was a way to integrate it into Exchange directly for archiving and access.

Barracuda a lifesaver
Vorteile: Barracuda Message Archiver makes quick work of finding email messages. The many search options make it possible to find any email, whether you know the sender or not. Date search, keyword search, sender search, From or To searches all help you obtain the most accurate results.
Nachteile: Sometimes it finds too many results. But that is usually when I can't remember an exact keyword to search for. But this really isn't a Con.

Emailing archiving for long term storage
Vorteile: Good integration with a Exchange, also can do a cloud backup of the archived to Barracuda cloud as well.
Nachteile: It's one of the pricier solutions for email archiving, and you have to size it right or in theory, you could outgrow it.
