Veritas NetBackup Pricing, License Cost and Setup

Smaller virtualized environments will want to stick to a traditional licensing model if possible. It will likely be cheaper, but it is a pain to manage all the individual licenses for each client. Once you get to a thousand or so servers to backup, the capacity model starts to make more sense. Again, it is not what you would call cheap. View full review »

If you have a complex environment with dozens of different servers and apps, I recommend you look for TB licensing. We decided to convert our per server licenses to simplify the license management. View full review »

Licensing was very expensive and did not scale well if needed to move between license models. But you get for what you pay for. View full review »

I can’t comment much as there’s not much visibility on this aspect. However, I’d advise mostly to go for a capacity based license for mid to large scale organisations. View full review »

Personally, I'd tell them to make an inventory of what they want to backup, how often, and the size of backup and recovery windows. After that, we talk about how their requirements weigh in on the pricing/licensing. After that, then the real thing starts. View full review »

Pricing is pretty costly as compared to the other products but worth investing for the long term and high ROI. View full review »

Acceptable if you need to implement it for larger environments, e.g. over 1000 clients. For smaller setups it might be too expensive. View full review »
