Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"It saves time for the backup needs of our organization.""This is the best solution that I know of.""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.""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.)""The reporting is very good, with all of the details highlighted and very clear.""The most valuable features are the VMware VADP backups and the support for data domains.""The VM portal and the CloudCatalyst are two of the solution's most valuable features.""Good graphical user interface. It's easy to create policies and to do installs."

Cons
"The interface should be improved.""Endpoint backup capability is needed.""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.""This product would be improved with the inclusion of a Sandbox feature like Veeam Sandbox.""This solution would benefit from a more friendly, web-based interface.""In terms of improvement, it's very difficult to make it work with multiple business units. Its security model is too constricted.""It would be helpful, in future releases, if the solution could add WORM (Write Once Read Many) support right within the product.""Lacks a reporting feature."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This is an affordable solution""Veritas Netbackup offers affordable licensing.""We are very satisfied with the price of this solution.""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.""It's expensive when comparing to other solutions on the market.""My licensing model is based on capacity so as we grow, the price we pay increases and it becomes too expensive.""Licensing fees are charged based on the number of CPU cores.""We are happy with the pricing that we have, but it's expensive."

Questions from the Community
Top Answer: - For Veritas Backup Exec: Licenses are per client that you want to backup and depends on if it's only an agent for the system or for an application. - For VMware, the license is per VMware host.-
Top Answer: Both have their place. I am not telling you which one is the best for you-- as I am not familiar with your infrastructure. I can, however, tell you that Commvault is the best and only choice for us… more »
