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

Pros
"This solution provides us with easy management and great vendor support.""The most valuable feature for us is the combining of HA and SnapMirror.""The most important features are SnapVault, Snapshots, and SnapMirror.""For us, the greatest aspect of the solution is the fact that it just runs. It is amazingly resilient. That's very important to us, because we are basically, with some exceptions, have a 24/7 operation.""The most valuable feature is SnapMirror.""Data consolidation and visualization.""You can use different protocols at the same time. Monitoring is also very easy in NetApp FAS Series. There is a free tool for monitoring.""The most valuable features are the NAS features and NetApp's excellent support."

"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
"Dedicated storage efficiency accelerators could improve the overall performance of the system.""Currently, the newest release is not HCI friendly.""Technical support needs to be improved, as there are no longer partners in our country.""The one aspect of the solution that's negative for us is also more unique to us due to the fact that we did a MetroCluster. The tiebreaker piece that does the monitoring of the two different locations, and determines if one is not talking to the network normally (or if it's truly down) is a little difficult. It feels like it was not designed from the beginning to fit well into the other pieces. It feels like it was thrown in at the last minute and it is not smooth.""If our customer needs a high-performance storage solution then we don't recommend this product.""The solution could do more than just data.""Its licensing cost can be improved.""There is no NetApp infrastructure set up here in Greece."

"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
"I've sold arrays for as little $20,000 USD and as high as $300,000 USD.""It is expensive.""I don't recall the price, but in general, pricing can always be better."

"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."
