How has it helped my organization?

It provides us a single solution to recover data. We haven't had a lot of restore requests. There have been a couple of them where we had to restore a full server and the… more»

What needs improvement?

I have written a lot of different reviews about the product and every time I have mentioned the user interface is not user-friendly, e.g., the admin portal is not… more»

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

There is a bit of cost involved with signing up the entire solution. It's not a cheap solution.

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

I used Commvault from 2011 to 2012 at one of my previous organization, but it was only for a short period of time that I worked with it. I then had to move onto other… more»

What other advice do I have?

Go through an assessment first before selecting the product. Every business is different and has different requirements. Do a complete assessment with the data protection… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did evaluate Veeam and Cohesity. At the time, Cohesity was not mature, as they were fairly new to the business. We had a few meetings with them, and after our… more»

What is most valuable?

The ease of use is the most valuable feature. It is a very simple system compared to just about any other back up technology like Commvault or EMC Avamar. It is extremely… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The most specific reason why Rubrik is a step above just about everyone else out there is that it's cutting edge. With Live Mount I can instantly spin up a server for… more»

What needs improvement?

They have what's called an organization which means different groups of access to Rubrik, but the alerting only goes to the admins. My suggestion to Rubrik is to make sure… more»

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

Anyone who's using Rubrik or any solution is to do a POC, or a proof of concept, that is key. If you can do a proof of concept and you can put the device on your… more»

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

We used Commvault in Canada and in the U.S. we had Dell EMC Avamar. We switched from them because of the cost of ownership. The complicity of Avamar, the fact that Avamar… more»

What other advice do I have?

My advice would be to work closely with their personnel to implement it. For a large organization like ourselves create an internal project with a project manager. You can… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I believe we looked at Cohesity. There's a couple of other EMC solutions. Their latest, IPDA, is their latest Avamar solution. It's an integrated Avamar. It also was not… more»

What is most valuable?

The archiving feature is the most valuable aspect of the solution.

How has it helped my organization?

I'm new to the company, so I don't know if I can answer how the solution has improved the organization.

What needs improvement?

Although I am not a technical user, I would say the cloud integration features could be improved.

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

I don't have any information about the pricing of the solution other than to say it's a little bit higher than we would like.

What other advice do I have?

We're not partners with IBM. We're just customers. We have a good relationship with the company, however, we are not reseller partners. We're using the latest version of the solution. I'd rate the… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We are always looking at different solutions. For example, we are looking at Cloud Work, Cohesity, and Rubrik. We're very early in the process of evaluating them, so we don't have clear… more»

What is most valuable?

Overall, the solution is great. We have no complaints in terms of the quality it provides. We have been using Veritas NetBackup in our environment for the past 10 years. Although the features don't change much, it's extremely user friendly for us. We have widely deployed the solution as our sole… more»

What needs improvement?

The only pain point we have with this solution is the cost. It's very expensive. In fact, it's so expensive we are looking for other platforms. We want to move away from it in order to save our organization costs.

What other advice do I have?

We're a NetBackup customer and we have a close partnership with Veritas. We don't provide any services to clients. We just happen to use it. The product itself is great, however, the pricing is very high compared to the competition. Veritas has been quite well known in the market for some time now… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Currently, we're evaluating Cohesity. It is a new solution that we are starting to assess. We're looking at whether it's the right solution to replace our existing NetBackup. Right now, our entire organization is a NetBackup supporter. However, we also understand that the cost of the backup is… more»
