Valuable Features

The ease-of-use and management capabilities are the more valuable features for us.

Improvements to My Organization

We are able to utilize entry-level staff to operate our complete BURA. The product highly integrates and leverages the strengths with our other HPE products and our business processes.

Room for Improvement

The UX dates back to a very historic past. They need to bring it into this decade. Easy to say – difficult to do.

Use of Solution

I've used it for 10 years.

Deployment Issues

We have had some bumps here and there as you would expect from a product in this category.

Stability Issues

The product has struggled with some of its more complicated integrations (SQL Server and VMware) from time to time.

Scalability Issues

The product scales very well and cost-effectively.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

The sales resources for Data Protector are quite limited.

Technical Support:

The technical support resources are sometime challenging to work with due to language barriers. Latin American resources.

Previous Solutions

We have used this solution for 10 years now, but our staff has used other solutions in previous roles elsewhere.

Initial Setup

One of Data Protector's key benefits is its simplicity. It may be the simplest product of this category to implement and operate.

Implementation Team

We did an in-house implementation for the core features. We used HP consultants for implementing the HP Catalyst integration due to the capabilities and therefore the complexity. It has been a tremendous success.


We don’t disclose this information.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

It has dead simple licensing and the pricing is appropriate for the features provided.

Other Solutions Considered

Our staff has used products during other phases of their careers. They have stated they are pleased with Data Protector.
