Veritas NetBackup Review

Has good VMware VADP backups but it's very difficult to make it work with multiple business units

What is our primary use case?

We use it for general backup on our servers. 

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are: 

  • The VMware VADP backups
  • The support for data domains

What needs improvement?

In terms of improvement, it's very difficult to make it work with multiple business units. Its security model is too constricted.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Veritas Backup for eight years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

One of the best features is the performance is very good.

How are customer service and technical support?

Their technical support is average. Not perfect and not bad. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was complex. The networking was very complex; there are a lot of firewall ports.

It takes a few days to deploy and we do it with somebody in-house. 

Both our side and the vendor's side are required for maintenance. 

What other advice do I have?

I think it's probably a solution that has passed its prime. There are probably better ones out there.

I would rate it a seven out of ten.  

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Hybrid Cloud
