Avdhesh GargTechnical Lead at a manufacturing company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable features are the Self-Service, and the ability to search the data."
"In terms of stability, I've found it to be very stable. I've walked into the server room when it was at 60 degrees Celcius, and it was still running fine."
"The command-line interface is good."
"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."
"I would like the possibility to back up the infrastructure and then replicate it upon on restart, without having to orchestrate the starting of the VM."
"The configuration wizards are still complex and hard to navigate. These should be easier to manage."
"Setting up the system to work with legacy equipment is a bit complex at times."
"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."
"This solution 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."
