Pros
"Essentially, it replaced our tape backups."

More INFINIDAT InfiniGuard Pros →

"The solution is stable.""NetBackup is very easy for end-users.""The most valuable features are the VMware VADP backups and the support for data domains.""The solution is easy to scale.""I have found the Media Server Deduplication tool, deployment policies, and agentless features to be the most valuable features.""There's a very nice central console for the administration of all of the instances.""I have found it to be the simplest solution to the market. It gives us a complete end to end solution. We are using this solution, Veritas Appliance and another one for access archiving. It is convenient to have all the support from one vendor.""We believe that everything Veritas NetBackup offers, including backups, snapshots, deduplication, and replication, is valuable."

Cons
"I would like to see more improvement in the GUI."

More INFINIDAT InfiniGuard Cons →

"In regards to protecting the physical servers with parameters, it's a long and difficult process.""Lacks a reporting feature.""Veritas NetBackup has been in the backup and recovery market for quite a long time, but somehow, from my own observations and from feedback from end users, its user interface is lagging behind other comparable solutions such as Veeam.""Like the other enterprise solutions, Veritas NetBackup isn't easy to implement. It's a little bit hard compared to other solutions like Data Protector for HPE. You have to struggle to learn a lot of features that Veritas NetBackup offers to customers.""The biggest additional features needed are more cloud capabilities and security from ransomware.""Maybe they could add more cloud solutions.""It is a very expensive solution. They should have a different scheme for selling it. They should also make it easy for us to switch from Solaris to Linux. We are having some trouble in migrating our actual catalog from Solaris to Linux.""I do not really like NetBackup as it is coming from a mix of other software packages."
