What is most valuable?

Its most valuable feature is probably the variety of features it has. You have the ability to perform a lot of actions with a single software solution. Specific features that I could not do without are SLPs for replication and duplication... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Our only other frame of reference is switching from BE to NBU. We got more advanced control of backups and restores by switching to a full-fledged enterprise solution.

What needs improvement?

The code base in general could use an overhaul. The base of the product is very old. It gets a lot of new features, but improvements in basic functionality are often sacrificed for a shiny new bullet point to put on sales presentations. It is... more»

What is most valuable?

You can construct a comprehensive robust backup solution based on NetBackup. Management of such a solution will not be an ultimate challenge. I can rely on this product if I need a restore.

How has it helped my organization?

Six months ago, I recovered several dozen TBs of production data after our storage failed. I recovered Enterprise Vault, Exchange, Oracle, and SQL DBs and VMs. We did not lose any production data and immediately after recovery, the business... more»

What needs improvement?

The last releases introduced a simplified backup of MS SQL and Oracle. I'd like to have a more user-friendly interface for recovering MS SQL. It would be nice to have native support for MySQL and PostgreSQL. Veritas should increase the number... more»

What do you think of Veritas NetBackup?

Improvements to My Organization Managed to control all backups centrally across the environment and ensure correct and multiple retention periods were in place based on the business requirement. • Valuable Features Management interface was simple to use once understood. • Room for Improvement Updates were not always consistent. • Stability Issues Early releases did seem to cause issues. Once a stable version was found then we generally stayed with it for an extended period, as it just worked. • Scalability Issues Very scalable. Started with 20 machines, within two years, scaled to over 250 and management was just as easy. • Customer Service and Technical Support Customer Service: Good. Logging of tickets was very difficult and complicated but once logged,...

What do you think of Veritas NetBackup?

Improvements to My Organization It enabled Telecom Fiji Ltd to backup the Unix-based OS. Backup Exec 12.0 was only able to backup the Windows platform. • Valuable Features Deduplication is the most valuable feature as it reduces the backup time and provides backup of a single copy of data as opposed to multiple versions of the same file. • Room for Improvement GUI needs to be more user-friendly. • Stability Issues The product has been stable from day one. The only issue was on Telecom Fiji Ltd's side, i.e., when the tapes are not rotated per cycle and the data is not transferred to it for clearing the storage pool. This caused the pool to fill up and affect the backup jobs. • Scalability Issues We did encounter some stability issues. We could not read the LT04...
