Pros
When it was required that data had to be restored for our customer, it was accomplished successfully and this has kept our end users satisfied.The response time of the tech support is swift. The support is fantastic.This solution is really the best in the market! After evaluating other solutions, we automatically decided to use this one.The best feature is the DR replication for us.

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.Logs are very easy to read, parse, and use for diagnostics.

Cons
We would like support for tape space reclaim, using either the same or another pool.The security features need backup and encryption. It would be nice if they added this feature. I would also like to be able to decrypt when restoring the security features. Hackers can sense these vulnerabilities today, and we need to have our enterprise prepared.There are some limitations regarding scalability of the product.We have faced problems with the initial configuration of the solution.

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).The product is not able to keep up with other competitors in the market.

Pricing and Cost Advice
You have to buy the deduplication software separately from the license.Low cost is key.

Veritas Netbackup offers affordable licensing.This is an affordable solutionThe licensing model is cost-prohibitive as you scale out.Acceptable if you need to implement it for larger environments, e.g. over 1000 clients. For smaller setups it might be too expensive.
