Veritas Backup Exec Review

A flexible product that can handle backup and recovery from virtual servers

What is our primary use case?

We implement digital solutions for our customers and this is one of the products that we help them with. It handles their backup and recovery.

In most cases, our customers use a private cloud deployment model.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the ability to back up IBM Power virtual servers. The functionality does not even exist in Veeam. 

What needs improvement?

I would like to see a more powerful and effective processor in the appliance.

Compared to other vendors, there are features that you will find not included in Veritas.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used this solution for approximately twenty years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a very stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of this solution is good. It is very flexible.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support for this solution is good, and I haven't and any problems with them.

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

This was our first backup solution.

How was the initial setup?

This initial setup of this solution is not complex, but once it is deployed you need to have somebody who can handle it.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

There were no other vendors on our shortlist. We did evaluate a few other products, but our customers did not need the whole portfolio. 

What other advice do I have?

This is a solution that I recommend.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
