Pros
One nice feature with Backup Exec is mainly that disaster can happen to any server and the disk image can be destroyed very easily. It's also easy to fully email the backup image and restore the server.It is a good backup tool.We are satisfied with the stability of the product.In the global business world, Veritas has a very good name. I think they have a good solid product, and they are always trying to improve it, and update it. ;They know what the client actually needs, and they are up to the challenge of satisfying those needs.The backup solution comes in different versions to support different platforms.It is one of the most stable backup solutions.Backup Exec 2012 R2 is a very good product for the Windows file system and SQL backups. It is very user-friendly, but the next version Backup Exec 2014 that is released and the other next versions of Backup Exec product is not so friendly.One of the valuable features is the instant recovery for VMs. It reduces the RTO (Recovery Time Objective) drastically.

Cons
Veritas Backup Exec should be more user-friendly. The costs should also be much lower and it should be easier to go through the disaster recovery process.I would like to see this solution improve on faster restoration. Currently, it takes a long time to restore my data.It would be nice to improve the backup acceleration and the fast restoration required.Enhanced support for cloud backup needs to be added.Initial setup is a bit complex and needs some expertise for troubleshooting when something goes wrong.It is not a recommended software when it comes to large environments where there has to be a minimal Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and/or Recover Point Objective (RPO).Firstly, the GUI for 2014 is mostly confusing, i.e., if you need to add any additional technical features, then it doesn't require a change to the GUI.There still a lot of room for improvement in synthetic technologies, especially when targeted to deduplication media.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Veritas licensing is somewhat expensive. They have to decrease the price.I would like to see a better licensing model. They changed it and it's just horrendous.It is cheap compared to the other backup technologies. It all depends on the requirements.Depending on the scenario, it can cost less than half of the price of other methods.
