The features I find most valuable are probably the VMware snapshot backups and the Veeam replication. Their replication is very good. It can easily be used for disaster recovery in a number of situations.
It's also very much faster than any other migration or disaster recovery platform we have. I work with virtualization, mostly on VMware, and I must admit that Zerto is even better than VMware Site Recovery Manager. Zerto compresses the data and it works much faster.
The embedded deduplication engine is really good because we use a Near Line SAS disk as a repository for our backups, and we don't need to pay for another appliance such as a Data Domain or Quantum so that we can have hardware-based deduplication.
Rubrik is highly scalable and is easy to do.
The most valuable feature has been the Live Mount feature.
The enterprise search and instant restore are pretty valuable. Also, the Helios stuff is pretty good and the SAS engine for ransom malware detection.
The solution is stable; there is no need to retry any sort of jobs in daily operations.
The user interface in general is very good. I
We believe that everything Veritas NetBackup offers, including backups, snapshots, deduplication, and replication, is valuable.
I have found the Media Server Deduplication tool, deployment policies, and agentless features to be the most valuable features.
The ability to map a drive and restore a separate file is most valuable. The restoration activity is good.
You can restore all your data or partial parts of it. You can restore a specific version of the data. It has a lot of options for restore, so you can have the correct data that you want to restore. This is very important. You must know what you are going to restore. Otherwise, you may be overwriting correct data with other data. You must know what specific files you are restoring as well as which version. Partial restore is very important because there might be some files which are newer than the backup and some files that are corrupted. You need to restore some files from the backup, but not all the files.
