Micro Focus Data Protector Review

We find the simplicity very useful.

Valuable Features

It's very easy to use. Really, the simplicity of it is something we find very useful. Otherwise, it might not be a solution that's beneficial for us.

Improvements to My Organization

Our central system must be powered at all times. Data Protector is always available for powering our central system. It does exactly what we need it to do.

Room for Improvement

It works with virtual machines, but it's way too complex right now. Also, the licensing structure is not very good.

Use of Solution

We've used it for 15 years.

Deployment Issues

It deploys without any issues.

Stability Issues

It's quite stable.

Scalability Issues

We use the 300 series servers. We've determined that it won't scale any more for us while we researched an alternative backup solution. Have have 90% virtualization now that we're suing VMware and CommVault.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Technical support is quite good.

Initial Setup

The initial setup was complex.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

It's not an expensive solution.
