"Very stable solution."
"The initial setup is very straightforward."
"The most valuable features are the performance and the duplication."
"The solution is quite scalable. An organization shouldn't have any problem expanding if they use this solution."
"It's a stable solution."
"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 initial setup gets easier the more you do it."
"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."
"The reporting is very good compared to other tools."
"It has been our go-to product for backup."
"It is easy to use and the performance is good."
"It has a lot of very good features. The virtual tape library (VTL) feature is most valuable. Overall, it is easy to use."
"NetBackup is based on really good architectural hardware, and Veritas has the best backup and replication technology in the world."
"We find the pricing is reasonable."
"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."
"The product has low capacity."
"Integration could be better."
"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 hybrid model is not that efficient if we want to off-site data; it takes a lot of time to upload the data on a regular basis."
"The configuration can sometimes be tricky during implementation."
"It could be better integrated with other platforms."
"It would be a better solution if we were able to make more reports in regards to the backup system."
"I would like to see support for databases such as MySQL and MongoDB."
"The desirability of appliance solutions is dwindling in the marketplace."
"The price needs to be improved because it is really expensive."
"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."
