Veritas NetBackup Appliance Review

A stable solution that provides simplicity, with a straightforward setup

What is our primary use case?

High available Backup Solution for about 200 Unix Servers (Linux, AIX, SunOS)

What is most valuable?

We like the simplicity of the solution. You can recover and browse backed up data via CLI (command-line interface). The platform independence of the bare metal restore feature is great.

What needs improvement?

They could improve the process of installing by not wasting so much local disk space during the process.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution's stability is perfect.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is very scalable.

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

We did previously use a different solution. The change was a management decision because of the pricing.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was easy. The only problem that we had occasionally was, when we installed the software, we had to store a big amount of data to disk, because the package included all the operating systems and sometimes the space on the filesystem was not enough. We needed about one and a half gigabyte to install the software.

What other advice do I have?

We use a local high-available backup server version of the solution.

With this solution, we've had perfect support and our use cases were perfectly served. 

I would rate this solution nine out of ten.
