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

Pros
"The solution can be used for all Office 365 applications."

More NetApp AltaVault Pros »

"The documentation is good.""The features are good.""Our customers who have faced ransomware attacks were able to recover their data in less than one day without any stress. Veritas is ransomware resilient and because of its implementation, it is not dependent on the operating system to work.""Best feature is its three-tier backup.""It was especially useful with the appliances we use on a daily basis.""I think the support is fine. We haven't had issues with it.""It has a very good user interface.""If you are running on a legacy tape environment NetBackup is best."

Cons
"It would be nice if the solution was more complete. Many customers are looking for a single solution or silo that they can manage everything from. It would be nice, instead of having different products, if everything a client needed was in one solution."

"Support for the solution needs improvement.""Veritas could simplify the firmware recovery in terms of the deployed. The process shouldn't be dependent on the agents. It should be completely agentless.""In regards to protecting the physical servers with parameters, it's a long and difficult process.""In the next release, I would like to have a better way to protect against ransomware attacks and a better way of logging issues where you don't have to enable the verbose logging to capture the problems.""It's not a user-friendly solution. It's a little bit complicated. The UI is not very friendly.""It was very complicated, and it required a lot of work in terms of management. We have moved to Rubrik. One of the reasons for getting rid of Veritas NetBackup was the fact that at one point, we had the support staff with 12 to 15 people to manage Veritas NetBackup, whereas, with Rubrik, I'm the only one managing Rubrik. There is one more person who works with me mostly due to the fact that in case I'm not around, someone else knows what to do, but I'm the only one who is a full-time manager of Rubrik. The complexity of Veritas required a large staff to manage it. We had daily issues that had to be looked into and resolved. A lot of these issues revolved around Veritas' handling of VMware, which is why first we moved VMware off Veritas. After we did that, we were also able to reduce our staff count. Their licensing is a disaster. It is extremely complicated. In most cases, Veritas themselves can't understand their own licensing.""The deployment time is longer than it is with other products.""The solution is quite expensive."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"The pricing, of course, can always be better.""Veritas NetBackup is very expensive, and I think price is the main reason which some customers don't want to use this solution.""My licensing model is based on capacity so as we grow, the price we pay increases and it becomes too expensive.""It is slightly more expensive than Commvault, but it is pretty much the same. It is an enterprise solution, so it scales quite well. It has a lot of features. So, you pay for what you get. It is not cheap, but it is fit for the purpose.""Licensing fees are charged based on the number of CPU cores.""When you compare NetBackup's software licensing system with Veeam's, which is simpler and based on instances (or how many physical machines or virtual machines you want to protect), NetBackup isn't that competitive for smaller scale companies. However, if you're running many large workloads, then NetBackup may be the better option.""The price is fair.""Our primary complaint about this product is that it is too expensive."
