Veritas NetBackup Review

Easy to install, configure, and use

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is to backup the databases for our enterprise clients.

How has it helped my organization?

It is a very good backup solution that we provide to the majority of our clients as a service.

What is most valuable?

It is very easy to perform a backup, and then verify whether it has been properly completed or not.

What needs improvement?

Add endpoint backup capability for a particular appliance. Currently it is server level only.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We use this product daily, and my impression of the stability is very good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable. Our clients include fifty to sixty IT managers that are responsible for backing up their company's data. We plan to increase this number as we add new clients.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not contacted the product's technical support. We have our own lab set up for testing the product.

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

I use a second solution, Commvault, in cases where there is no domain. I did not, and still do not use another solution for our primary use case.

How was the initial setup?

The setup, installation, and configuration is not complex. Once the product is configured, it is very easy to use.

What about the implementation team?

For this solution, we handle the system integration for our clients. It takes approximately ten to fifteen days to deploy the backup solution.

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

I think that the pricing and licensing for this solution is good. It is affordable.

What other advice do I have?

I have not had any issues or problems when using this solution. It has been working perfectly for our primary use case.

I would rate this solution eight out of ten.
