Veritas Backup Exec Review

It provides our daily backups and restores

How has it helped my organization?

It provides our daily backups and restores. It gives us the ability to locate and restore critical files which users may have intentionally or unknowing deleted a while ago. We also enjoy the feature which allow us to set up a backup job on one location, to be backed up to media on another Backup Exec server.

What is most valuable?

  • Backup to Disk: It restore files very quickly.
  • vSphere infrastructure backup option: Useful to keeps VMs on disk and it is done fast.

What needs improvement?

They can work on the issue of the job timing out when it is unable to reach a selection item. It sometimes hangs up on the selection item, thus preventing the job from continuing.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There were issues with version 2010, but since our last upgrade, we are comfortable again.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There were no issues with scalability, because we had all the necessary licenses.

How is customer service and technical support?

I would give technical support a rating of nine out of 10.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We did not use a different solution before this one.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

If your company can afford it, go for it.

What other advice do I have?

It is simple to set up. Once the backup jobs are clearly defined, the rest is history.
