We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
I feel that it is a good product.The backup software has been much faster since we've deployed the solution.The solution has minimized the recovery time objective, and the recovery point objective, the RTO and RPO. Most customers are looking for to minimize downtime. The solution has helped ensure this.Technical support for this solution is very good.NetWorker has very good scalability.The solution is very stable, especially if you are using a RAC environment.The most valuable features for us at the moment are NFS, file system backup, and IP backup.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 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.

Cons
There are too many reboots and the software requires constant updating.I haven't had a good experience with technical support. It takes them a very long time to resolve issues.It's not easy to integrate. We have to read a lot of documentation in order to configure the solution.We are able to do direct backups, but analyzing the logs is not straightforward.The deduplication needs improvement and it could use better integration.The software also isn't user-friendly like Convault or Rubrik. The solution errors and management aren't so good in comparison.We are looking forward to better stability in future versions.We would like support for tape space reclaim, using either the same or another pool.

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
The pricing of this solution is very good.It's approximate, but I believe we pay around $20-30,000 a month in licensing.You have to buy the deduplication software separately from the license.Low cost is key.
