The backup potential of the solution is very good. It's protected us in the past very well and allowed us to get up and running after an attack with minimal loss.

I prefer to use a tape library and Veritas Backup Exec is fully compatible with different tape libraries. So I prefer this software.

Of course, all of the solutions are agent-based, but granular recovery, GTR, works well in Backup Exec. It was Symantec in the past. I can easily recover a user or a file. It mainly works directly to the original location, which is why I prefer to use it.

This solution creates a differential backup to reduce storage requirements.

This solution is not complex and you do not have to be too technical to use it.

Veritas offers granular restore, which is an option that many other solutions do not have. It allows you to restore, for example, a single SharePoint document, rather than an entire site.

It has good stability. Its interface is very good, responsive, and easy for restoring data. I use it for backup, encryption, and restore operations, and it works.

I am using many agents from VM to LMDP. I also use an agent for SQL Server, which has advanced options because it is the Enterprise version.

It's very good at allowing us to back up the servers.

It is responding very well, and its performance is good. It has a lot of options. For backup, you can connect it to a cloud or a physical hard drive.

They also provide an API for integration with different platforms and products. However, we have not integrated it with another product.
