Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The web-based interface makes it easy to use.""Acronis is a flexible solution. It can back up workstations, endpoints, and even your virtual environments and cloud-based environments. So, we can do the backup of the whole gamut of products.""The licensing model is very good.""The most valuable feature is the fact that it backs up my systems transparently in the background, and I'm not even conscious of it.""This is a full software so deployment time is very quick.""The most valuable feature is the extra protection, especially for the backup.""It's a good solution that's very easy to use. Acronis has two valuable features. The first one is creating images, and the other is starting virtual machines in the cloud so the client can work immediately.""For my first experience, it is the best software for backups, especially for a five-system backup."

"The most valuable feature is the disaster recovery functionality.""I like the virtual server backup.""This product is flexible enough to allow for backing up data from physical machines, as well as from your cloud environment.""The VM portal and the CloudCatalyst are two of the solution's most valuable features.""The most valuable feature is flexibility.""It's a good product, it does what we want it to do.""I have found it to be the simplest solution to the market. It gives us a complete end to end solution. We are using this solution, Veritas Appliance and another one for access archiving. It is convenient to have all the support from one vendor.""The solution is stable."

Cons
"The problems that we face are often related to the customer's network, although sometimes there are problems with the software, such as an error in the configuration.""In some cases, at the time of reinstallation, some disasters happen. For the licensing on the computer the name of the computer and domain, everything is removed from the registry level. Then we have to install the Acronis from the start for it to work properly. Otherwise, the Acronis software will cause a lot of trouble at the time of reinstallation. That's where they need to improve the product. In the case people want to install the same software with the same hardware, it should not stop me.""We have issues with the SQL databases which are a little shaky.""It supports Microsoft SQL and Microsoft Exchange, but it does not support Oracle databases or Postgres.""When you are using enterprise hardware and software that increases over time, there need to be better and more management features. For pure backup software, it is fine, but when it comes to managing a large infrastructure it is lacking.""They've got an agent to back up Microsoft SQL, to our Office 365, but there is not an agent to back up my SQL databases.""The solution could be better if some of the features were more in-depth.""It would be better if they made it easier to obtain images for laptops and desktops. It isn't easy right now to have many different types of desktop computers. This is because Microsoft is changing a lot of things in Windows 10."

"Maybe they could add more cloud solutions.""The pricing is a bit of a concern. If could be lower.""It would be helpful, in future releases, if the solution could add WORM (Write Once Read Many) support right within the product.""It was very complicated, and it required a lot of work in terms of management. We have moved to Rubrik. One of the reasons for getting rid of Veritas NetBackup was the fact that at one point, we had the support staff with 12 to 15 people to manage Veritas NetBackup, whereas, with Rubrik, I'm the only one managing Rubrik. There is one more person who works with me mostly due to the fact that in case I'm not around, someone else knows what to do, but I'm the only one who is a full-time manager of Rubrik. The complexity of Veritas required a large staff to manage it. We had daily issues that had to be looked into and resolved. A lot of these issues revolved around Veritas' handling of VMware, which is why first we moved VMware off Veritas. After we did that, we were also able to reduce our staff count. Their licensing is a disaster. It is extremely complicated. In most cases, Veritas themselves can't understand their own licensing.""Planning for the implementation takes a lot of time.""The SQL Server backup features are not up to date.""Main area that could be improved is the pricing, to make it more competitive""I think reporting can always be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The price is reasonable.""The pricing is comparable to the newest solution available on the market, Altaro.""There is a license required to use this solution and it is inexpensive. However, it is an old license.""Its price is quite friendly on the pocket. You need to pay the licensing cost upfront, and then the support charges are on an annual basis.""The pricing is reasonable. However, it depends on the storage that you use. It would be great to have a package that we can use up to a certain size of the backup, this would allow us to know what the price is going to be up to that capacity.""It is very cost-effective for the SMB segment, especially for start-ups and smaller environments. It is cost-effective for on-premises and on-cloud deployments in such environments.""We have a Cyber Cloud backup license and we have on-premises storage. Both can be useful for our customers.""There is a license required for this solution and it can be on a monthly basis."

"Veritas NetBackup is very expensive, and I think price is the main reason which some customers don't want to use this solution.""It's expensive when comparing to other solutions on the market.""The pricing, of course, can always be better.""The licensing fees are expensive.""There is a license required for this solution and it is priced based upon the data used.""When you compare NetBackup's software licensing system with Veeam's, which is simpler and based on instances (or how many physical machines or virtual machines you want to protect), NetBackup isn't that competitive for smaller scale companies. However, if you're running many large workloads, then NetBackup may be the better option.""If you have a source size of one terabyte then they will charge for a one terabyte license, although what is actually being stored is much less.""Price-wise, most of the backup products are similarly priced, and NetBackup is the same."
