Good snapshot features including full-machine backup, helpful support, and it's simple to set up
The restore functionality is an area that needs to be improved because right now, it is not very good. It requires a lot of time to connect the snapshot, identify the files, and restore a single file manually. In general, I would like to better manage the granular restoration of files. This is true both in a Linux environment, as well as Windows. A lot of our clients are using Linux for their application servers. We want to be able to restore either single files or multiple files from one volume. Today, it is very complex because it requires us to restore the full image of the volume. Only after that, can we extract a single file. Ideally, we should be able to extract a single file from a snapshot.

It's a user-friendly solution that helps us migrate our customers from their local servers
When you finish a project, the client should have the opportunity to browse the files rather than simply ending the contract. Also, it's not possible to recover earlier versions. It should be possible to have a database for recovering files after you finish a contract. There's no solution for this from Veritas. The clients pay annually for the product, but when they decide to cancel the contract after five or six years, how do they get older versions of their data? Veritas only offers a snapshot of the last backup. They also no longer offer the Veritas for Microsoft 365 solution in Brazil. We have to find another solution for 365 at the end of the year, so we are going with N-Able.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"AWS Backup's most valuable feature is that you can configure it remotely to create backups."
"It works well as a backup and as a service."
"It also saves costs and is quick."
"When I was using an on-premises backup, there was an external hard drive or something like that. I had a backup server, but I had a few problems related to transfer when I had to restore something that I have deleted. I had to wait for after-office hours to do something like that, but now I just have to send a mail. Within one hour, I have my restored file."
"The solution has an effective overwrite feature."
"The most valuable feature is the daily incremental site backup."
"The most valuable feature is its ease of use."
"I rate the tool's stability a nine out of ten."
"he most valuable feature is that it's not so intrusive with computer resources."
"The most valuable feature is that it is simple to use."
"Veritas is loaded with features because the appliance is ready to integrate with the cloud in cases where the customers have a hybrid or cloud environment."
"The duplication is the solution's most valuable feature."
"We're comfortable using this kind of technology. It's user-friendly."
"The most valuable features are the ease of administration and the ease of configuration."
"The solution is stable; I haven't experienced any bugs or glitches on it."
"I think the most important feature is the ability of SaaS Backup to cover all modules proposed by Office 365, because competing solutions don't cover the total scope."
 

Cons

"There could be a centralized dashboard with a reporting feature notifying us of daily backup status."
"Its cost could be better than a few of its competitors."
"The service disconnects a lot."
"The initial setup of the solution is complex."
"The notifications on the backup and on the mobile app could be more useful. If they could arrange notes or notifications properly and offer services for managing it in our region, it would be helpful for us."
"The solution's reporting features and restore features can be improved."
"This backup tool does the full backup of the entire snapshot server. I would like to have the option to not do the full server backup."
"They should work on their visual capabilities."
"In the future, we would like to see support for virtualized machines."
"The implementation could be improved. The server setup is very easy, but some specific client implementation, for example, Oracle or SQL servers, are a little bit complicated. they should offer a bit more assistance with the setup for these particular items."
"The go-between is a Veritas partner, so the customer support was not that good. The solution is fine except when there is a purchasing crisis where you have to remake the ecosystem. It causes a lot of issues. The support was a problem, but we're okay with it as long as we have someone to communicate with."
"Technical support can be improved."
"Licensing has been a struggle. It went from bronze, silver to gold. Licensing needs more sophistication. It has features that are sold as separate add-ons."
"The technical team wasn't very helpful."
"When you finish a project, the client should have the opportunity to browse the files rather than simply ending the contract. Also, it's not possible to recover earlier versions. It should be possible to have a database for recovering files after you finish a contract. There's no solution for this from Veritas."
"Currently, it isn't possible to use anything other than Veritas cloud to back up to. I think today it's important to cover the three major cloud provider: GCP, Azure and AWS."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"The solution's price is reasonable."
"Our customers pay a monthly AWS fee that includes the AWS Backup service."
"We don't use a lot of space, only approximately 900 GB, so the price is reasonable. For standing, it's okay. We normally do a payment to SSML, and they are the ones who pay over there. It is around $100 monthly."
"The pricing is decent."
"AWS Backup is a very cheap solution."
"The clients pay for the whole AWS bundle. It is an affordable solution."
"It's a myth that Cloud is cheap. Cloud is cheap initially, but the cost over time can be equal to your own infrastructure if you consume a lot."
"AWS is more expensive than some competitors like Azure."
"SaaS Backup isn't the most expensive solution."
"The program is quite expensive."
"This solution is not cheap and not expensive but priced in the mid-range."
"I would rate this solution's pricing as five out of five."
