Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
From a centralized system, I can manage the interface, the backup policies, and the status of the database.
The initial setup is one of the most user-friendly B2B user solutions. It's good, it's easy. Deployment usually takes less than one day. You only need one person for deployment and maintenance.
This is a user-friendly solution.
The interface is very user-friendly.
The implementation is straightforward.
The speed and deduplication ratio are two of the most valuable features of the solution.
The deduplication feature in this product is amazing.
It results in more efficient storage utilization, cutting capital expenditure in half.
Regarding scalability, it's unlimited with Data Protector. You can link multiple installations and let them work together. They can share backup devices. You have many possibilities with Data Protector. It's very proficient.
The feature that was most valuable was that we could restore one mailbox and we could do different backups for different databases.
The solution allows us to be able to backup and exchange directly, to backup Microsoft exchange.
This solution is quite stable because we have only three users.
Performs the backup properly and protects our data.
I have used Micro Focus Data Protector for the file backup facilities. My primary use of the software is to backup file data.
It's supports Unix, Linux, all of the OS's. It's very stable software.
The repository should have an extension to connect to the cloud and deposit the backups.
The solution should continue to refine its integration capabilities. I also see they are starting to use cloud integration as well, which is good, but they should do more to integrate with it.
I would like to see an emphasis placed on making data deduplication and compression more powerful.
The solution's pricing could be improved.
The solution would be improved if it could also be used as a data store for VMware.
The appliance doesn't have the global deduplication, it has StoreOnce deduplication. It does not deduplicate across the appliance, it will deduplicate in one particular store. With the global deduplication, I could store more data.
This product would be improved with the inclusion of more features to security or WORM.
The product could be improved with better support for data protection.
People prefer Veeam because the interface is easier, and Data Protector is difficult in comparison.
It's very expensive compared to Veeam and other similar solutions.
The solution is not intuitive enough. I think they should work on the user experience and the graphical interface. These can be a lot better.
The technical support was very slow.
The technical support is poor and should be improved.
They should design the solution so that it is much easier for deployment and make the UI easy to use.
The new backup systems are using new mechanisms for the recovery phases; for example, VM, recovery and testing the backup before recovering it. These features are not available in Data Protector.
Pricing and Cost Advice
There are costs for additional storage and space.
The licensing cost was not annual. We didn't pay any license. We paid when we deployed and we didn't pay for anything after that. There were no additional fees after the initial payment.
In Data Protector, if you need extra features, you need to buy the agents for these features. Some of the features are Terabytes, some of them are agents. There's some complexity in the pricing and licensing.
