Veritas NetBackup Review

Helped Improve Our Data Replication Among Critical DCs

How has it helped my organization?

Data replication among critical DCs across regions.

What is most valuable?

AIR and duplication, overall management and troubleshooting.

What needs improvement?


What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Not since version 7 and higher.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The number of media servers is restricted and this should be pointed out by the vendor.

How are customer service and technical support?

Quite good. Seven out of 10.

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

We switched due to better scalability and overall app management.

How was the initial setup?

It's pretty straightforward for a simple configuration but much more complex for a large environment, with many features and tuning required.

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

Acceptable if you need to implement it for larger environments, e.g. over 1000 clients. For smaller setups it might be too expensive.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

IBM TSM, EMC NetWorker.

What other advice do I have?

This is a mature product, one of the market leaders, so if you can afford to purchase and have significant infrastructure to be protected, then go ahead and speak to Veritas.
