"Data Protector is very good at automation. From the time of the backup, verification, and copy to tape, it is very good. I don't need to touch it, it will do it by itself."
"It is a traditional backup model. If you talk about file server and the official Windows database, it's a stable product."
"Micro Focus Data Protector's most valuable feature is its interaction with the fiber share. It is easy to use, we use it to back up without any problem to VTLs, and can use the Fiber Channel that is still the TCP."
"Deduplication implementation with CAPA is very good."
"The most valuable feature is the capability to back up our SQL server."
"The initial setup is straightforward if you understand Data Protector."
"What I like the most about this solution is that I can change and access the Oracle backup file."
"It's a good product that's pretty easy to use."
"Most of the features that we can use with HPE products are directly integrated with the Veeam. This is very important for the customers to have only one pane of glass to manage the backups and also use the HPE products for the backups."
"I have been in contact with technical support and they are very good."
"The most valuable feature is the internal recovery."
"The documentation is very good. It's also easy to install Veeam Backup and Replication."
"Its simplicity and the fact that it just works are most valuable. We kind of set it up and generally forget about it. It does what we need it to do in the background, and it doesn't involve a lot of management."
"The technical support is good."
"The initial setup for a simple environment is very easy. We just do next, next, next, next for the installation. It can be complicated in a complicated environment. It can be simple for a simple environment. I enjoy installing it. It has a lot of features."
"The integration with some storage systems like HP or Nutanix and great support are the most valuable features. You get productivity support. You get a response within one hour, even in the evening or night. The functionality of the whole software is good."
"VMware backup integration and cloud recovery is lacking."
"The interface has been the same for many years and needs to be updated"
"Micro Focus Data Protector must improve its overall evolution record. They need to focus on hardware based instant recovery, client recovery, and cloud ability. Now there is no cloud ability."
"This solution is not scalable."
"Other tools seem to be easier to use."
"I don't like this solution so much because it's very technical and compared to Commvault and Veeam, it's not so user-friendly. The interface needs improvement."
"Microfocus needs to build a partnership with other vendors in addition to HPE as far as cloud consolidation of backups."
"In terms of what can be improved, I would say integrations with MongoDB. We use MongoDB and we need to go to scripts to do backups. We need more integrations."
"Backup speed should be increased, and there should be more functionality."
"I think Veeam needs to improve the file installation process, as well as more technical things like snapping feature issues. Sometimes during backup, when it's taking the scan snaps on the ESXi, it started and didn't remove the snapshot from there, which consumed storage on the EXSi. It could be improved with more technical depth. The response time for Veeam's technical support could also be improved."
"I think that Veeam could improve some performance issues when the backup itself is restored. I'm also using HPE StoreOnce, which has deduplication, and when I'm trying to test or run backups, it takes a lot of time. I think they could improve the testing for backup copies."
"I have a problem with the VM. When we started doing a backup, it takes a snapshot for our virtual machines, but when we try it two or three times, in some cases, our virtual machines go to a consolidated state. I don't know why this problem happens. But I still think Veeam is a top-ranking solution."
"Pricing can be improved."
"The licensing models, from a reseller's perspective, could be better."
"The Cloud version is not ready, they need maturity and ease of deployment in terms of management."
"There's a lot of room for improvement surrounding the backup process."
