What is most valuable?

The VM portal and the CloudCatalyst are two of the solution's most valuable features.

What needs improvement?

The interaction of NetBackup with the cloud is not an easy process. You can't choose, for example, data optimization with the cloud. We would like to use CloudCatalyst with AWS and we can't. I don't know how to explain it, but the data file… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Compared to other solutions, such as Dell EMC's Avamar, the solution is reasonably priced. We've got a simple payment scheme set up where most of the features and the product itself are included in one single cost. It's quite straight… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used Dell EMC's Avamar solution. We decided to switch to Veritas after running into problems on Dell's platform and dealing with large overhead costs to have the solution.

What other advice do I have?

Since we are a service provider, we have a close relationship with Veritas. We offer services based on their technology and on their product. I'd advise others considering implementing the solution to first evaluate against use cases… more»

What is most valuable?

Being able to spin up a machine in a sandbox is amazing because it allows us to test things that we otherwise would not be able to do. The self-test feature isn't anything… more»

How has it helped my organization?

This is true peace of mind for all IT admins. OnQ works, simple as that. This is also the first and only company that has reached out to me because they saw issues before… more»

What needs improvement?

At times the email notifications don't go out, but a quick reset always fixes that problem.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The cost is higher than other software and services, but it is an absolute must-have. It pays for itself daily, even if you never have a disaster (knock on wood).

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have used many different solutions and at the time, none of them came even close to what OnQ provided. They were ahead of the game, everyone else had to catch up after… more»

What other advice do I have?

It's hard to say where this product needs improvement, as we have not had any problems or needs other than what is already provided, and we are more than happy with the… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at Veeam, Unitrends, Datto, and Dell.

What do you think of NetApp SnapCenter?

What is our primary use case?

Our ERP structure is on the SnapCenter. We also keep on it SQL Servers, VMware products, etc.

How has it helped my organization?

It has greatly improved our DR activity. 

What is most valuable?

Assisting backups.

What needs improvement?

We would like to see more granular repording and reporting in bigger sets available in SnapCenter. 

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Our ROBOs has told me that stability is good. However, we have been hit by bugs.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have not looked yet at scalability because we are using single instances right now.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have experience…
