Veritas Backup Exec Valuable Features

Samuel Calys-Tagoe
IT Specialist at a energy/utilities company with 51-200 employees
The backup feature was the most valuable for us. We used it on the exchange and SQL for mass files and folders. When we did backups, we did full backups as opposed to incremental ones. We found that for exchange, SQL and even for single files we were able to restore the resource process as well. View full review »

It gives us a very good view of what's happening on the network. The security feature is very good as well. The network isn't open to everyone. It's open only to those who work on it. One improvement we've seen is the visualization of issues. If people are having issues on the network, we have to see what's happening right away. On the graphical side, we can see exactly where the issue is, and what port is affected. It's a lot easier for us to correct and to troubleshoot network issues now. The interface continues to be very convenient and very straightforward. View full review »

This solution creates a differential backup to reduce storage requirements. This solution is not complex and you do not have to be too technical to use it. Veritas offers granular restore, which is an option that many other solutions do not have. It allows you to restore, for example, a single SharePoint document, rather than an entire site.

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. View full review »

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. Sometimes with other software, a complete backup doesn't happen. With Veritas, the SLAs are pretty predictable and you can achieve complete backups easily. It offers duplication and compression and the safe sorting of information. View full review »

Alex Ntow
Chief Technology Officer at EITBS Ltd
The most important feature is the ability to automatically backup and restore databases. In particular, with the advent of virtual machines running multiple versions of Database, being able to back them up and restore them from one single Dashboard is very important for disaster recovery and business efficiency.
