We were evaluating other products and getting confused between Commvault and Veritas NetBackup. The one reason that we started with Veritas NetBackup is the pricing of the license. There's no other reason from a technical perspective or even operation or capability of the two software. The main reason we chose Veritas NetBackup was that in our use case it is more cost-effective.

The most valuable feature is that it is basically a replica of our SAND data. We archive the SAND data for recovery, if there is an issue on the fence.

Veritas NetBackup Automatic Image Replication and CloudCatalyst features allow me to replicate deduped backup images from one site to a remote site, as well as duplicating deduped images to the Cloud (i.e. AWS S3, etc.)

Improvements can be made to the service by providing better and more competitive ratios on data backups. The functionality for backups is there with Veritas, but I would like to see them optimize and enhance this feature more.

I would advise not to use this tool. I think between the licensing issues and the older solution mentality it is not a great solution.

Some of the hardware is out of support.
It needs support for Kernel-based Virtual Machines (KVMs).
The product is not able to keep up with other competitors in the market.
I have been involved in upgrades. They have not been straightforward. Some of them have required us to make changes to our architecture and production environment.
