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

Pros
"The most valuable features are the flexibility and stability of the product.""This is a good product with a simple environment.""The initial setup was straightforward. It was very easy. Deployment only took about one hour with configuration and everything considered.""Application awareness is very good and the speed of this solution is good.""I like working on the Azure platform.""A full-featured option for managing virtual machines with an instant recovery feature.""The interface of this solution is quite good.""The user interface is good. It provides a lot of information."

"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
"I would like to have more flexibility in terms of reporting details about the backup.""I would like to have a more automated installation process.""Maybe in the future, they could do something better with the user interface and the performance, but so far it's a really good, efficient solution.""The stability of this solution needs to be improved.""I am not very impressed by the technical support I received when I had an issue.""Updating and configuration can sometimes be a little bit of a hassel, but once you know the product better it is easy to use.""An area that this solution could be improved would be with the licensing.""The predictability of the solution needs improvement. Sometimes, if it's doing something at the back end, it may go slow. Today, the backup completion took four hours, but sometimes it can do the backup in 30 minutes or an hour. With solutions like NetBackup, I can predict to a much higher degree of certainty how long something will take to complete."

"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
"Our licensing fees are on a yearly basis.""Pricing is based on license packaging and duration. Longer term licenses are less per year and license packages also offer a discount.""There are costs in addition to the standard licensing fees, and pricing can be a disadvantage or a weakness for this solution.""We purchased a three-year license, and I think that the prices are ok.""The pricing is good.""The licensing fees are billed on a yearly basis, and the fees are much lower than what I pay for NetBackup.""The pricing model is based on CPU and must be declared as Microsoft or VMware licensing."

More Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows Pricing and Cost Advice »

"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."
