If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Veritas SaaS Backup, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
I would rate it a nine out of ten. It excels in performance and delivery but they are quiet on the market. They don't do a lot of marketing. There are plenty of IT people who haven't heard of Veritas so it's harder to sell. I would recommend this solution. IT infrastructure reaches a point where it needs backup. There are freeware or cheaper options but those are only good for smaller companies. I would highly recommend it for mid-market to a large market.
My advice to anybody who is considering this solution is to first conduct a PoC to learn about the various features that Veritas offers. Overall, Veritas is a very good backup product, but nothing is perfect. Optimal software does not exist. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
Veritas is okay and is a product that I would recommend. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
Other people will prefer this solution because they're used to it. However, from my point of view, you have more breaks, more failures on it than you will with Commvault. This solution was the market leader at one point. I don't know if they still are. I haven't been keeping up to date. There are more solutions on the market now, from what I'm seeing. The environments that are being protected are changing as well. Everything is more geared towards the cloud. My advice to anyone who wants to purchase this solution or any other solution is to actually know the environment, what to protect, and what they're trying to achieve. You don't have to get the most expensive thing out there if you just want to do simple things. Most of the solutions do the same thing and it won't fall over. They're all pretty stable. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.
We use the on-premises deployment model. At this point, I'd recommend other solutions as backups. I'd rate it six out of ten.
I would recommend this solution because it covers the total scope of Office 365. That's why I recommend this solution. Competitors don't address the total scope. I would rate this solution as seven out of ten. It is not a full ten, because it's important to simplify the user experience and reduce the policies, or the number of clicks you need to do to customize your policy. Rubrik is better at that point.
We're a Veritas partner. We use the private cloud deployment model. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. I'd rate it higher, but I do believe it could offer better implementation guides.
We use the on-premises deployment model of the solution. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. I'd recommend the solution.
Because we are partners, I push sales for this solution as a backup system. I do recommend this solution to small or medium-sized companies, though. In the next version, I would like to see easier backup in the cloud. I would rate this an eight out of ten. The solution is not perfect, but it is good.
