More Arcserve UDP Pros »

"One nice feature with Backup Exec is mainly that disaster can happen to any server and the disk image can be destroyed very easily. It's also easy to fully email the backup image and restore the server.""This solution works well and has good integration with technologies such as VMware and Hyper-V.""The most valuable feature is the ability to back up IBM Power virtual servers.""The dashboard was good. I loved to see the maintenance dashboard every time I logged on. That was my first screen because it always gave me a reminder of how many days before my next renewal.""The most valuable feature is the user-friendly interface.""The interface, dashboard, and pricing are all perfect.""The solution is very scalable. Whenever we grew, it was just a matter of adding new licenses, so it's easy to grow.""I have not seen another backup solution as scalable as this one."

Cons
"It should be easier to switch between backup locations. We have multiple data storage locations and sometimes one of those storages need to be replaced. It would be nice if they made it easier to reconfigure the backup configuration.""The only problem with the solution is that when I change the drive capacity, it has to do a full backup. It's a problem when I have five servers to backup. When I only want to change the size of the drive, I have to do a full backup that can take one week.""In the most recent version of premium plus the replication has been removed, and it should re-added to the solution.""Based on my experience, whenever we need support, there are difficulties with communication when trying to resolve the issue."

"Veritas Backup Exec should be more user-friendly. The costs should also be much lower and it should be easier to go through the disaster recovery process.""This solution does not support image-level backup of a physical server.""Compared to other vendors, there are features that you will find not included in Veritas.""The cost is quite high. Along with the general costs, the supposed agents that you have to buy for the various options that you want to use ends up driving the costs higher as well.""There are some issues with the Backup Exec Library and the random picking of tapes.""Better integration with non-Microsoft products would be an improvement.""In terms of improvements, I think the pricing model could be improved. They charge you by port, for every port that you have even if you're not using all of them.""The user interface needs to be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We only have the maintenance of three standard UDP licenses. Each license is 50 Euro. There are some additional costs for the storage and software but it has nothing to do with the UDP.""Normally our customers purchase the premium plus license, rather than the standard one, which provides more options.""The price of this product is high and it should be lower."

"Veritas licensing is somewhat expensive. They have to decrease the price.""We are satisfied with the price of this solution.""It's a good price for the product.""The price of this solution is a bit high.""It is a mid-range solution on the pricing scale.""Its price is reasonable.""This product is priced for smaller customers.""There is an evaluation license available to test this solution."

Questions from the Community
Top Answer: Comparing the features of the four is not the right approach. You need to develop a list of requirements for backup and DR that are specific to your organization and then compare each of the four… more »
Top Answer: I have never used Commvault before but I have been using Veritas NetBackup for many years and I am very satisfied with it.
