A very user-friendly and intuitive solution that helps maintain stability

What is our primary use case?

We bought the Veeam Enterprise license for Linux and Microsoft backup for the virtual machines running on those operating systems. The reason we bought this software is that I have a lot of experience with Veeam software. When I compare Veeam with the storage manager from IBM or data protocol from HP or Exeter or some backups from Dell, Veeam is superior. I could buy these other products but Veeam is best because it is very user-friendly as well as being a very great solution. In addition to my personal experience and opinion, when we bought this software, our virtualization software only had… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "Veeam helps to create a stable environment with virtual servers."
  • "The initial setup is very straightforward."
  • "Veeam is very user-friendly and intuitive software."
  • "The solution could use some updates to minor details omitted from current reporting."

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten (where one is the worst and ten is the best), I would rate Veeam on Microsoft Windows as a nine-out-of-ten. What I would expect in order to make this product a ten-of-ten is that they will add some details in reporting about the backup jobs. They need to just fill this little hole in the software by adding details in the reports that are not currently included and it is really giving me everything I need as a user. I would recommend Veeam to others who are looking into implementing it.

User-friendly, stable, and feature-rich

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and Veritas NetBackup is one of the backup and recovery products that we resell to our clients.

Pros and Cons

  • "NetBackup is very easy for end-users."
  • "The biggest problem with NetBackup is licensing."

What other advice do I have?

Overall, NetBackup is a good product and the only problem is the licensing module. We would really like to have socket-based licensing. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Good speed performance, but the interface should be more user-friendly

What is our primary use case?

We use this product to back up our VMs and files locally and then to the cloud.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the backup speed."
  • "The interface could be more user-friendly."

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is considering this product is to implement the newest version, IBM Spectrum Protect Plus. This is a good product, although it would be better if it were easier to use and manage. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
