Most Helpful Review
The Deduplication and Compression are the most valuable. The processing capabilities (version DD670) could be improved.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
This is a superior and reliable backup system that can handle large capacities with little management.
The backup is very secure. The deduplication using EMC is very good. We are able to make systems and handle random cloning. EMC is a very stable solution for making backups.
The product provides good backup and compression services.
The solution's most valuable feature is the integrated deduplication function.
It's very easy to use the domain once it's been set up. The interface is also user-friendly.
The most valuable features are the deduplication and compression and the Data Domain Boost.
We have never had any issues with Data Domain. It has been stable.
The initial setup was straightforward. Deployment takes about two weeks.
The reporting is very good, with all of the details highlighted and very clear.
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.)
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.
This is the best solution that I know of.
It saves time for the backup needs of our organization.
The most valuable feature is that it is basically a replica of our SAND data. We archive the SAND data for recovery, if there is an issue on the fence.
It is essential. We can't do without it.
Its most valuable features are flexibility and reliability.
The product lacks some security features that would make it more stand-alone and integrated.
They should reduce the CPC cost to customers. The product is becoming very expensive.
The licensing model was the biggest concern for our company, but the poor support after the initial implementation is of equal concern.
The pricing could be better, but it's still not too expensive.
The firmware upgrades could be simplified. I'm in the process of struggling to upgrade right now.
We have had deduplication and replication issues. When we used another backup software we noticed that it didn't have the same issues.
We are not able to deal directly with the OEM we have to go to their partners in Nigeria.
The pricing model needs to be improved.
This solution would benefit from a more friendly, web-based interface.
This product would be improved with the inclusion of a Sandbox feature like Veeam Sandbox.
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.
Endpoint backup capability is needed.
The interface should be improved.
I would advise not to use this tool. I think between the licensing issues and the older solution mentality it is not a great solution.
Some of the hardware is out of support.
It needs support for Kernel-based Virtual Machines (KVMs).
Pricing and Cost Advice
This is one of the more expensive backup solutions on the market.
There are many options in the pricing structure which can cause some confusion and necessitate the purchase of additional licensing.
In Naira it was twenty-five or twenty-seven million (approximately $75,000 USD) for the implementation and maintenance cost for three years.
Pricing is related to size. A lower range solution might be about $33,000. My customers use higher range versions with a price of around $100,000. That's the price for both the hardware and software.
We are very satisfied with the price of this solution.
Veritas Netbackup offers affordable licensing.
This is an affordable solution
The licensing model is cost-prohibitive as you scale out.
