The reporting is very good, with all of the details highlighted and very clear.Veritas NetBackup Automatic Image Replication and CloudCatalyst features allow me to replicate deduped backup images from one site to a remote site, as well as duplicating deduped images to the Cloud (i.e. AWS S3, etc.)We were evaluating other products and getting confused between Commvault and Veritas NetBackup. The one reason that we started with Veritas NetBackup is the pricing of the license. There's no other reason from a technical perspective or even operation or capability of the two software. The main reason we chose Veritas NetBackup was that in our use case it is more cost-effective.This is the best solution that I know of.It saves time for the backup needs of our organization.The most valuable feature is that it is basically a replica of our SAND data. We archive the SAND data for recovery, if there is an issue on the fence.It is essential. We can't do without it.Its most valuable features are flexibility and reliability.

This solution would benefit from a more friendly, web-based interface.This product would be improved with the inclusion of a Sandbox feature like Veeam Sandbox.Improvements can be made to the service by providing better and more competitive ratios on data backups. The functionality for backups is there with Veritas, but I would like to see them optimize and enhance this feature more.Endpoint backup capability is needed.The interface should be improved.I would advise not to use this tool. I think between the licensing issues and the older solution mentality it is not a great solution.Some of the hardware is out of support.It needs support for Kernel-based Virtual Machines (KVMs).
