Veritas Backup Exec Pros

The dashboard was good. I loved to see the maintenance dashboard every time I logged on. That was my first screen because it always gave me a reminder of how many days before my next renewal.

The solution is very scalable. Whenever we grew, it was just a matter of adding new licenses, so it's easy to grow.

One nice feature with Backup Exec is mainly that disaster can happen to any server and the disk image can be destroyed very easily. It's also easy to fully email the backup image and restore the server.

The beauty of the solution is that you can rely on it. It offers a quick recovery time when it's backing up items. The way it recovers data is excellent.

Veritas Backup Exec Cons

The cost is quite high. Along with the general costs, the supposed agents that you have to buy for the various options that you want to use ends up driving the costs higher as well.

In terms of improvements, I think the pricing model could be improved. They charge you by port, for every port that you have even if you're not using all of them.

Veritas Backup Exec should be more user-friendly. The costs should also be much lower and it should be easier to go through the disaster recovery process.

The licensing packet is confusing. If Veritas could do a better job of clarifying it, that would be helpful.

I would like to be able to create a restore task that can be scheduled so that the same restore action will be performed automatically.
