We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The most valuable feature for us is the combining of HA and SnapMirror.
This solution provides us with easy management and great vendor support.
One of the most valuable features offered is double-parity RAID, which guarantees that your data will stay intact. We're also able to provision storage and monitor which ones are really consuming storage.
It is good to have a unified storage where you can have block and file level protocols.
The initial setup was so straightforward. It was well-documented.
It is very flexible. It integrates well with the public cloud and other components, so everything can be API driven. Therefore, it is very easy to automate it.
Using the built-in Snapshots and SnapMirror technology, we were able to have better working data protection locally and off-site.
The storage efficiency provided a maximum savings in our storage utilization.
It is very capable of scaling and very good for heterogeneous environments.
We have good data backup coverage.
The most valuable feature is that the backup and restoring process is very fast.
Compared to a homemade installation, this appliance is very stable.
We rarely need their help. I would give their technical support an 8.5 out of ten. We are satisfied.
They are a large company with good best practices, and they give good support.
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.
The most valuable feature of this solution is that it can be used in many different kinds of systems.
Currently, the newest release is not HCI friendly.
Dedicated storage efficiency accelerators could improve the overall performance of the system.
I would like to see less latency and higher IOPS.
It lacks automatic tiering, When you use data, some of it goes cold. It is not hot data, so the system should automatically move that data to the SATA, while the hot data is kept on tier-one, the SaaS or SSD drives.
The only downside is in ease in management; it is not easy to use.
It's not a cheap system. It is very expensive. The pricing has been ridiculous every time that we had to renew the support.
We would like to have further integration with some backup products. They have some of them already, but there could be more.
The AutoSupport could be improved to be more proactive in certain cases.
I would like to see support for databases such as MySQL and MongoDB.
This solution has to have better integration with the cloud, as well as with other solutions such as Business Intelligence products.
We had some problems with the backup of the physical server.
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.
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.
I would like to see a product that requires less expertise to manage it.
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.
Technical support for this solution needs to be improved.
Pricing and Cost Advice
The scalability is pretty good, but it's too expensive.
The price, compared to competitors, is quite high.
Cost effective storage for all performance levels (including all-flash).
The only area that could be improved is to lower prices for their All Flash FAS.
The price it not low, but comparing features to other vendors, the price can be balanced.
There are products available in market with comparatively lower costs.
Most storage vendors also have software, or licensing bundles, which may offer the required licenses considerably cheaper, but do also maybe offer licenses, which are not needed.
It costs more to license support for this solution, compared to others.
The price of this solution is very high compared to other solutions.
The licensing costs are approximately 150,00 Saudi Riyals.
The licensing costs for this solution are very high.
