Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP) Cloud Direct solution has earned a PC Mag Editor’s Choice in the publication’s Best Cloud Services for Business Reviews for 2022. The Editor described the product as having an easy-to-use interface and a deep and advanced feature set, including options for disaster recovery, ideally suited for IT professionals.

  • Quick and accessible backup and restore functionality
  • Deep, IT-grade features including data security, both on stored data and data moving between targets

What Are the Most Important Cloud Storage Features?

The PC Mag article also features a graphic that breaks down a survey of global IT professionals, business executives, and backup administrators as to which cloud storage features are most important to them. Top of the list? File-based recovery. That was closely followed by technical support, the ability to protect everything in your environment, and ease of use. In other words, features that you’ll find with Arcserve UDP Cloud Direct. In its review synopsis, PC Mag wrote, Arcserve UDP Cloud Direct is a full backup toolbox meant for midsized businesses and up. While it has an easy-to-use interface, it comes with a deep feature set for IT pros that includes disaster recovery options.

A Sophisticated Platform and Full-on Disaster Recovery Solution

And here’s what PC Mag wrote in its review of Arcserve UDP Cloud Direct: Since last we reviewed Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP) Cloud Direct it's seen several changes, including a refresh to its web interface so it's easier to use and also supports custom branding. While this has certainly helped make this business cloud backup solution easier to use, it still has a sophisticated feature set that will likely make it most attractive to midsized and larger companies with dedicated IT personnel. In fact, its features are enough to qualify it as a full-on disaster recovery solution, though not all of those features are contained in one product. That, along with excellent reporting and restoration features, make this a well-earned Editors' Choice winner…Today, it's one of the more sophisticated platforms you can purchase, which is definitely an important buying consideration. “It is fantastic to see such a well-respected publication recognize what we have achieved with this product,” said Florian Malecki, Vice President International Marketing, Arcserve. “Over the last year, we have enhanced Arcserve UDP Cloud Direct in many areas, including a complete revamp of its web interface to make it easier and more intuitive for our customers while maintaining its high-level business functionality. It is also very pleasing to see the Editor highlighting that, as well as being easy to use, the product has a range of technically advanced and comprehensive features, which make it an ideal solution for midsized and larger companies with dedicated IT personnel.”
