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

Pros
"Some of the features we find very valuable and use a lot, are retention sets.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the integration with Oracle.""The most valuable features are the API features because it allows you to integrate with your Microsoft SQL, your Oracle, and your IBM Db2.""This solution is very stable and has good support available online.""With this product, we now have a reliable backup solution.""The feature I find most valuable is the offload to Spectrum Protect for long-term retention. I think the deduplication and replication are quite nice on Plus.""This is a multi-platform backup solution where you can take a backup from AIX, Windows, or Linux servers and restore from CD, disk, or tape.""A full-featured data protection solution that is reliable and stable."

"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."

Cons
"An area that needs improvement is data validation. We currently use another product that gives us immediate validation, information about when the last backup was, and no risk of corruption happening. TSM in IBM Spectrum is not mature so that you can validate on the spot.""The backup support for IBM Power Virtualization needs to be added.""I would like integration into where the VMware guys can do their own restores.""The administration needs to be improved and made simpler to use.""Instead of using the command prompt for troubleshooting and administering the backup, there should be an easy-to-use graphical user interface.""The user experience is very bad and the interface needs to be improved.""The Gui interface and usability are not so friendly and easy.""Not particularly user friendly."

"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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The licensing model of Spectrum Protect Plus is more efficient and cheaper compared to the original.""In addition to the standard licensing fees, we paid for implementation and training.""Unlike some other solutions, such as Veritas NetBackup where you have to pay for different licenses to use different features, there is a single license that allows you to use all of the features.""Depends on the licensing options that you choose.""The price is lower than that of some competing products."

"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."
