Micro Focus Data Protector Valuable Features

On the interface level of managing the backup, especially the history of the files that we are backing up, Data Protector is pretty good. Implementation is pretty easy, depending on the number of clients. The data deduplication is great. The solution offers easy device detection. It's great for detecting devices you attach to the network. It doesn't matter if it's HPE StoreOnce or Data Domain, this solution will pick it up. The catalog if very complete. Even if your file is eight years old, you'll be able to see it there. Data Protector is very good at automation. From the time of the backup, verification, and copy to tape, it is very good. I don't need to touch it, it will do it by itself. View full review »

The most valuable feature for me is the duplication. With Micro Focus, which works with the HP hardware, you don't need to use interfaces. With other solutions like Backup Exec, etc., you have to run an additional API in the background. It impacts your systems. It's not the same when you are using Micro Focus directly with the HP hardware. This solution is more efficient. If you use another solution, you need to use an additional API. The people who designed Micro Focus were from HP, which is why they work so well together. View full review »

Integration with HP storage is a very strong point for Micro Focus Data Protector. It is the best solution for general operations like backup and restore. Zero downtime backup (ZDB) is one very important feature, which is basically the integration with the storage array. It is a very strong feature. We're using storage with snapshots with this integration. View full review »
