Veritas Backup Exec Initial Setup

Samuel Calys-Tagoe
IT Specialist at a energy/utilities company with 51-200 employees
The initial setup was straightforward. The deployment was easy. I didn't have any problems. I deployed it on the very first day myself and installed it into that was IBM built into Dell team backups. I didn't have to install any additional drivers. The application already had them, so it was able to recognize my team's loopholes easily. I didn't have a problem with that. And then having to set up my backup selection also wasn't a problem. I was able to do it easily. View full review »

The initial setup was straightforward. Deployment takes a day or two, and then you have to run the system. To maintain the solution we don't need any resources. It works on its own and we get alerts and work according to those alerts. There's not a dedicated team, just a system team. View full review »

It's easy to set up, setting up it is no problem. The configuration is also very easy. The setup time for Backup Exec was about one week. If the structure is very heavy, then it will take around one month to set up. View full review »

Technical Services Manager at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
The initial setup was pretty simple because we have expertise. We are partners with Veritas and we do installations on a regular basis. In reality, the installation time is even shorter for the Veritas portion. Integration, of course, takes a bit of time. You need approvals for the different application owners, for example. It takes time, but installation is a maximum of one day. View full review »

The installation of this solution was easy. Before the installation begins, you have to know the structure of your company and what scenario fits. For example, we are a company with master media, and we install it on our servers. We have about five full-size media centers and a master server. The installation is straightforward for an IT person. View full review »

At first, because it was such a new product at that time, there was a huge learning curve. But once I understood how they back things up, all the versions that followed after that were pretty straightforward and there wasn't much of an additional learning curve. View full review »
