More Veritas NetBackup Pros »

"The compression ratio of the backup data should be improved.""The time required to restore files should be a little faster.""I would like to see better integration with more products, and more services.""The solution is quite technical. I wouldn't describe it as user friendly. It could be simplified a lot to make it more accessible to the average user.""We have a concern with the backup when were are working with VMs that are running in Barracuda Firewall because it usually fails.""Technical support is in need of improvement.""The monitoring and tagging features could be improved.""In the next release, I would like to see the ability to back up to different cloud providers."

More Azure Backup Cons »

"Technical support only gets back to us the following morning.""We want a solution that can be scaled-out because our data is growing very quickly, and we aren't able to back it up quickly. It takes one or two days, which is a problem. It is very slow. We just use one backup server. We want another solution with maybe a backup server cluster to back up more data in one day. We want a solution that can be scaled-out to back up our data quickly and efficiently.""Like the other enterprise solutions, Veritas NetBackup isn't easy to implement. It's a little bit hard compared to other solutions like Data Protector for HPE. You have to struggle to learn a lot of features that Veritas NetBackup offers to customers.""The solution is not that stable because it has to be monitored and administered every day. The stability could be improved.""I think reporting can always be improved.""The solution is quite expensive.""In regards to protecting the physical servers with parameters, it's a long and difficult process.""In terms of improvement, it's very difficult to make it work with multiple business units. Its security model is too constricted."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The price is somewhat high and could be lower.""Price-wise, it's similar to AWS.""We are paying about $100,000 USD per year, just for a couple of servers.""It is a bit costly initially, but it is well worth it in the long run, especially for fighting against a number of threats, such as ransomware, which the IT industry is facing.""Support payment works by the level of partnership and the number of shares.""The price is pretty good, maybe $30 for a machine, I can't complain.""This is an expensive solution in the Bangladesh marketplace."

More Azure Backup Pricing and Cost Advice »

"In terms of cost, it's not very good.""My licensing model is based on capacity so as we grow, the price we pay increases and it becomes too expensive.""We purchased a perpetual license and perform SMS renewals.""The pricing, of course, can always be better.""It is slightly more expensive than Commvault, but it is pretty much the same. It is an enterprise solution, so it scales quite well. It has a lot of features. So, you pay for what you get. It is not cheap, but it is fit for the purpose.""Licensing fees are charged based on the number of CPU cores.""The price is okay.""A better price would make this product more competitive."
