We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It results in more efficient storage utilization, cutting capital expenditure in half."
"The deduplication feature in this product is amazing."
"The speed and deduplication ratio are two of the most valuable features of the solution."
"The implementation is straightforward."
"The interface is very user-friendly."
"This is a user-friendly solution."
"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."
"From a centralized system, I can manage the interface, the backup policies, and the status of the database."
"The solution is very scalable."
"Installing this solution is very simple and takes perhaps five or ten minutes."
"If you use the NetBackup Appliance you do not need to have separate media servers and hardware. You can configure the same storage as a media server and master server as well as a storage port. This helps to reduce the hardware costs of the media server."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is that it can be used in many different kinds of systems."
"The intelligent policies feature is used in order to protect the VMware infrastructure. One of the things that makes a big difference for our company is the usage of these intelligence policies. The system automatically provides extra protection for any VMware server application or service. From a backup administrator's point of view, this is what we call peace of mind. It reduces the workload and therefore reduces resources needed from the company."
"They are a large company with good best practices, and they give good support."
"We rarely need their help. I would give their technical support an 8.5 out of ten. We are satisfied."
"Compared to a homemade installation, this appliance is very stable."
"The product could be improved with better support for data protection."
"This product would be improved with the inclusion of more features to security or WORM."
"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."
"The solution would be improved if it could also be used as a data store for VMware."
"The solution's pricing could be improved."
"I would like to see an emphasis placed on making data deduplication and compression more powerful."
"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."
"The repository should have an extension to connect to the cloud and deposit the backups."
"They could simplify the process of installing, and provide more space for data during the process."
"I would like the ability to recover a single folder within the backup of a virtual machine."
"With technical support, it feels like they aren't well trained and it takes forever to get answers out of them."
"Technical support for this solution needs to be improved."
"The only drawback for NetBackup, and of course for Veritas, is that they have stuck to the same environment and to the same UI - User Interface. This needs to be improved in future releases. It needs to be more dynamic."
"I would like to see a product that requires less expertise to manage it."
"They need to make the licensing more clear. They should give all of the licensing details for the portals and be more clear. I have accidentally purchased the incorrect license because it's not clear."
"The scalability isn't great. Every time you want to add storage, you can't just add a little bit, you need to add a lot."
"There are costs for additional storage and space."
"Price-wise, it comes with a high price tag when compared to other products."
"The cost of HPE StoreOnce is very expensive."
"The licensing costs for this solution are very high."
"The licensing costs are approximately 150,00 Saudi Riyals."
"The price of this solution is very high compared to other solutions."
"It costs more to license support for this solution, compared to others."
"Appliances do not come cheaply."
"Overall, Veritas is a good solution; the problem is the cost."
