Veritas NBU appliance is an integrated Purpose-Built backup appliance and includes backup software, RHEL OS and storage for keeping backups.  


Veritas supports a single point of contact for the OS, backup software and storage and, thus, eliminating the dependency of multiple support systems.

This is a good backup interconversion solution because all the masters and the targets backups are on the same system. It is easy to administrate for a single point of access for clients.

The most valuable feature involves VMware Instant Recovery, which allows one to do restoration within seconds.

I can confidently say that I have managed more than 30 or 50 appliances over different time periods, and yet I never had a single hardware failure.

The intelligent policies feature is used in order to protect the VMware infrastructure. One of the things that makes a big difference for our company is the usage of these intelligence policies. The system automatically provides extra protection for any VMware server application or service. From a backup administrator's point of view, this is what we call peace of mind. It reduces the workload and therefore reduces resources needed from the company.

We rarely need their help. I would give their technical support an 8.5 out of ten. We are satisfied.

If you use the NetBackup Appliance you do not need to have separate media servers and hardware. You can configure the same storage as a media server and master server as well as a storage port. This helps to reduce the hardware costs of the media server.
