Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The initial setup is very straightforward.""The most valuable features are the performance and the duplication.""The solution is very good because it is easy to use and it speeds up the backup and lowers the requirement for the storage rate. It is capable of encryption, compression, and deduplication and it is fast for sending all of the data over the network because it sends only the change blocks from the client to the DD server.""The solution is quite scalable. An organization shouldn't have any problem expanding if they use this solution.""Very stable solution.""It's a stable solution."

"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.""There are a lot of new features that operate to protect the data from ransomware attacks. They launched the Veritas/Appliances to protect our data. Veritas has been doing its job well.""The initial setup gets easier the more you do it.""NetBackup is based on really good architectural hardware, and Veritas has the best backup and replication technology in the world.""It has been our go-to product for backup.""The reporting is very good compared to other tools.""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.""It has a lot of very good features. The virtual tape library (VTL) feature is most valuable. Overall, it is easy to use."

Cons
"Integration could be better.""The solution could improve by adding more flexibility for the customers here in Thailand. Some of the small capacity models of the solution are not needed by our customers. There should be a more flexible version of the solution.""Technical support is okay but could be improved. I've sent a lot of complaints their way and I feel like they might be able to respond a bit better.""The solution doesn't scale. If you hit your capacity, you need to buy a new device.""The product has low capacity."

"The monitoring could be a bit better.""The solution could improve by providing more integration and security.""The reporting feature can be improved.""The price needs to be improved because it is really expensive.""It could be better integrated with other platforms.""Feature-wise, it is quite good, but it is very costly. Its price has gone up quite significantly over the years, and that makes people like us look at alternatives.""The desirability of appliance solutions is dwindling in the marketplace.""I would like to see support for databases such as MySQL and MongoDB."
