Veritas Backup Exec Review

It's useful for backing up both physical and virtual servers of Windows and Linux machines, but I've had compatibility errors in 30% of cases.

What is most valuable?

It is very useful to be able to backup files and folders, for both Windows and Linux (physical and virtual servers), and put them into whatever kind of storage that you desire.

How has it helped my organization?

It supports most of our storage systems and backs up most of them.

What needs improvement?

It's still hard to use. A more user-friendly version would be great.

I had compatibility error with Symantec in 30% of cases, and I think Symantec needs to change the whole user interface and menu.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I was using image base/file and folder backup system from HP.
