"The solution is easy to scale.""The deduplication feature is useful.

Cons

More NetApp SnapCenter Cons »

"The biggest problem with NetBackup is licensing.""I would like to have support enabled for cloud backups.""It would be better if it had a cloud integration feature. I would like to use a single product for the cloud instances and the on-premise instances. The price could also be better.""When the customer is using SaaS applications like Office 365, the integration falls short and needs to be improved.""The database integration could be better.""The pricing is a bit of a concern. If could be lower.""The only pain point we have with this solution is the cost. It's very expensive. In fact, it's so expensive we are looking for other platforms. We want to move away from it in order to save our organization costs.""Like the other enterprise solutions, Veritas NetBackup isn't easy to implement. It's a little bit hard compared to other solutions like Data Protector for HPE. You have to struggle to learn a lot of features that Veritas NetBackup offers to customers."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"Veritas NetBackup is very expensive, and I think price is the main reason which some customers don't want to use this solution.""Pricing is good, under our budget, and flexible.""Veritas NetBackup's pricing is a bit steep when compared to other tools. It is very costly, but service-wise and overall, the Veritas NetBackup is a good product.""If you have a source size of one terabyte then they will charge for a one terabyte license, although what is actually being stored is much less.""A better price would make this product more competitive.""Veritas NetBackup is considerably cheaper than that of Druva, the former being quite affordable.""Its price is quite reasonable. The cost depends on the depreciation and the volume. It also depends on the infrastructure. If your infrastructure increases, you would need some more licenses.""The price of NetBackup is okay. I think it's a little bit expensive but manageable. It has a lot of features, and the backup is better than most applications, so I think the price is competitive."
