We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable features are the special plugins such as SAP HANA databases, Microsoft SQL, and various types of virtualization."
"It works great and it provides you with several standard tools to restore your backup, even after a big failure."
"Bacula is pretty stable."
"It works within backup windows and has got good deduplication."
"The solution is very scalable."
"The hardware can operate in high temperatures, in case of any disaster."
"The most valuable feature is the performance because you can back up data really quickly."
"The stability is excellent."
"The most valuable features of this product are its guaranteed reliability and its duplication capability."
"It is very fast as compared to the other competitors. Its simplicity and bit rate are also valuable. It takes less time if we compare it with the old solution that we have."
"I find the data to be most valuable."
"We are looking for a unique interface that can rule both enterprise and open source editions. Such a thing does not yet exist."
"Bacula needs a graphical user interface because, for administrators, the command-line interface is okay, but for the average user it is not very easy."
"Easier setup and configuration, perhaps including a GUI, would be an improvement."
"When you use Data Domain, you have to have at least 20% free space so it can work properly. Sometimes we struggle with that, because we wanted to use all the free space, but then Data Domain becomes really slow. I understand that 20% is needed to process all the data, and doing the duplication and compression and all that, but it would be a big improvement if they did not require that 20%, because it is just too much to have available."
"The size and scale of the product are limited and could be improved."
"Its management can be improved."
"They need to make migration easier."
"I would like to see integration with public cloud."
"It can probably have integration with other OEMs. It should also have more features for ransomware protection."
"First-time integrations are difficult in NetWorker. NetWorker software needs to be simplified. It's very complex."
"I would like to see better integration and support for backing up to cloud providers such as Alibaba Cloud."
"This is an open-source solution."
"We have a perpetual license."
"Its price is reasonable."
"It could be more competitively priced. Its licensing was for five years. Obviously, the support will get renewed at some stage, but that's it."
"The price is on the high side."
