"The normal file system backup is easy to manage, and our success rate is quite high."
"The command-line interface is user-friendly and well documented in the reference guide."
"What I like the most about this solution is that I can change and access the Oracle backup file."
"It is a traditional backup model. If you talk about file server and the official Windows database, it's a stable product."
"It's a good product that's pretty easy to use."
"The stability of the product seems to be quite good."
"Deduplication implementation with CAPA is very good."
"The initial setup was relatively easy."
"I like that it's enterprise-capable. It can handle multiple operating systems. It can handle multiple database types. It can handle a lot of different backup use cases. It's flexible."
"They are among the top in the world for backup and recovery."
"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."
"The backup and restore functions are very valuable aspects of the product."
"NetBackup is very easy for end-users."
"The most valuable feature is that you don't need any special connectivity - you just need to give your seller name, and then it automatically discovers all your virtual machines, which is a great benefit, especially in a bigger environment."
"I like the virtual server backup."
"The VM portal and the CloudCatalyst are two of the solution's most valuable features."
"VMware backup integration and cloud recovery is lacking."
"The downside of the flexibility on offer is if you over-configure it, it may fail to function as some configurations may not match."
"If you compare the solution with the same specific features and enhancements on another solution, Data Protector is expensive. This is especially true when compared to, for example, Veeam."
"I would like to see a better user interface in the next release."
"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."
"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."
"It would be ideal if they could improve their level of support."
"The SQL Server backup features are not up to date."
"The solution is not that stable because it has to be monitored and administered every day. The stability could be improved."
"We want a solution that can be scaled-out because our data is growing very quickly, and we aren't able to back it up quickly. It takes one or two days, which is a problem. It is very slow. We just use one backup server. We want another solution with maybe a backup server cluster to back up more data in one day. We want a solution that can be scaled-out to back up our data quickly and efficiently."
"The most common problem is the backup failures over the weekend. We have to troubleshoot and sometimes do restores and then we have trouble doing some of the restores."
"The user interface could improve, it seems a bit out of date."
"Technical support is somewhat slow and is in need of improvement."
"NetBackup's reporting features are a little poor."
"I do not really like NetBackup as it is coming from a mix of other software packages."
