If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Micro Focus Data Protector, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
Considering the data report and also the possibility of maintenance and support, I would advise going for Veeam or Commvault because of the free trial security and backup possibility data protection, which is on-premise, cloud, and replication. This cannot be done by Data Protector. I would rate it a six out of ten. It only has the option for on-premise while the other solutions can do on-premise, cloud, and replication use the same interface. They should improve it to have a replication feature and do backups within the cloud. It can be a good device to use.
The solution is very stable, it was very helpful. We are confident that when we do a backup, we are sure that we can restore it which is very valuable. It's very reliable and we are confident when doing a backup, we could restore it. I would rate it an eight out of ten. It is very stable and we trust it but we've had some problems with it which is why I would deduct two points.
We essentially handle enterprise solutions. We work with enterprises that have their own cloud and machines to back up their systems. I would rate this solution ten out of ten. If you are an enterprise, and you need a strong backup solution, Micro Focus is for you. For me, it's the best.
We are using the on-premises version of the solution. In terms of advice that I would give to those thinking about using the solution, I'd say this: it's a very good application. It does the job. It can be better, but it does the job. It does everything any basic backup application should do. The interface could be more intuitive and more colorful to help with its ease of use. I would rate the solution seven out of ten.
I really wouldn't recommend others to use this solution - especially when it comes to the technical support. I rate this a five out of ten.
The Micro Focus Data Protector solution is not really good, but it is "good enough" that it can help our client requirements. If I compare Micro Focus Data Protector with other solutions, MFDP just does not have enough complexity in the UI. On a scale from 1 to 10, I would give Micro Focus Data Protector a seven. They should design the solution so that it is much easier for deployment and make the UI easy to use.
If a company has no protection for their data and information then they need this product. However, the reliability needs to be enhanced. Micro Focus needs to fix the current issues by working closely with customers to determine how it is that we can help. Overall, I would rate this product a six out of ten.
