Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"I think the support is fine. We haven't had issues with it.""This product is flexible enough to allow for backing up data from physical machines, as well as from your cloud environment.""Best feature is its three-tier backup.""We are quite satisfied with the performance and reliability of the NetBackup product. When it comes to specific features, the most valuable is the Instant Recovery feature, which we call "short-term IR". Instant Recovery allows users to spin up backup images and bring back any VM instantly.""The solution offers very good storage efficiency, so there's excellent compression and deduplication within the product that our clients really appreciate.""The documentation is good.""The backup and restore functions are very valuable aspects of the product.""It was especially useful with the appliances we use on a daily basis."

Cons
"Within their product lineup, they need to consolidate down to one product. Veritas doesn't have one product that does everything. So, Veritas can do everything, but you basically need to run two products. I would like them to combine all the capabilities into one release.""It would be extremely helpful if the solution offered near-zero recovery time for SQL.""Lacks a reporting feature.""The only pain point we have with this solution is the cost. It's very expensive. In fact, it's so expensive we are looking for other platforms. We want to move away from it in order to save our organization costs.""The product could improve the user-friendliness and comfort of its environment, especially for those unfamiliar with it.""The solution could improve by having a feature to backup iSeries workloads.""The deployment time is longer than it is with other products.""In regards to protecting the physical servers with parameters, it's a long and difficult process."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "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."
  • "My licensing model is based on capacity so as we grow, the price we pay increases and it becomes too expensive."
  • "Licensing fees are charged based on the number of CPU cores."
  • "We are happy with the pricing that we have, but it's expensive."
  • "It is very expensive. The licensing cost for this solution is on a yearly basis. It is approximately 50k. We will continue using it at least for the next year, but we are currently doing an analysis to switch to some other solution."
  • "Pricing is good, under our budget, and flexible."
  • "A better price would make this product more competitive."
  • "In terms of cost, it's not very good."
