We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This solution allows me to restore either the VM or the data, depending on what is needed."
"The storage backup is very efficient."
"The backup features are very useful."
"One of the most valuable features is security and connectivity to the data."
"The fact that Azure Backup is integrated is one of its biggest advantages."
"It's very simple to configure which is very useful. It's not complex to configure it."
"It is easy to schedule backups."
"Azure Backup is good because it is entirely cloud-based, which means that you can be 99.9% sure that your backup is safe."
"This is the best solution that I know of."
"We were evaluating other products and getting confused between Commvault and Veritas NetBackup. The one reason that we started with Veritas NetBackup is the pricing of the license. There's no other reason from a technical perspective or even operation or capability of the two software. The main reason we chose Veritas NetBackup was that in our use case it is more cost-effective."
"Veritas NetBackup Automatic Image Replication and CloudCatalyst features allow me to replicate deduped backup images from one site to a remote site, as well as duplicating deduped images to the Cloud (i.e. AWS S3, etc.)"
"The reporting is very good, with all of the details highlighted and very clear."
"The most valuable features are the VMware VADP backups and the support for data domains."
"The VM portal and the CloudCatalyst are two of the solution's most valuable features."
"Good graphical user interface. It's easy to create policies and to do installs."
"The solution offers very good storage efficiency, so there's excellent compression and deduplication within the product that our clients really appreciate."
"The user interface is a little bit confusing and it could be better."
"The support for Office365 backup is atrocious and is something that has to be improved."
"The solution is still in its infancy; it's not a mature product yet."
"We would like to see some kind of notification given to the user that a file was not synchronized well or what may have happened."
"In the next release, I would like to see the ability to back up to different cloud providers."
"To make it a ten, it should have the ability to extend the retention and to perform a copy of the data outside of the subscription - with no additional costs."
"Technical support is in need of improvement."
"The compression ratio of the backup data should be improved."
"Endpoint backup capability is needed."
"Improvements can be made to the service by providing better and more competitive ratios on data backups. The functionality for backups is there with Veritas, but I would like to see them optimize and enhance this feature more."
"This product would be improved with the inclusion of a Sandbox feature like Veeam Sandbox."
"This solution would benefit from a more friendly, web-based interface."
"In terms of improvement, it's very difficult to make it work with multiple business units. Its security model is too constricted."
"It would be helpful, in future releases, if the solution could add WORM (Write Once Read Many) support right within the product."
"Lacks a reporting feature."
"It would be extremely helpful if the solution offered near-zero recovery time for SQL."
"The pricing of this solution is ok, but I'm expecting that the price will decrease in the future."
"The pricing of this solution is good, and it is one of the easiest things that you can sell Azure with."
"Support payment works by the level of partnership and the number of shares."
"This is an expensive solution in the Bangladesh marketplace."
"We are paying about $100,000 USD per year, just for a couple of servers."
"The price is pretty good, maybe $30 for a machine, I can't complain."
"It is a bit costly initially, but it is well worth it in the long run, especially for fighting against a number of threats, such as ransomware, which the IT industry is facing."
"This is an affordable solution"
"Veritas Netbackup offers affordable licensing."
"We are very satisfied with the price of this solution."
"If you have a source size of one terabyte then they will charge for a one terabyte license, although what is actually being stored is much less."
"It's expensive when comparing to other solutions on the market."
"My licensing model is based on capacity so as we grow, the price we pay increases and it becomes too expensive."
"Licensing fees are charged based on the number of CPU cores."
"We are happy with the pricing that we have, but it's expensive."
