Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"This is easy to use with a simple restore feature.""They introduced a new feature called the Immutable Repository feature, which helps protect environments from malware attacks that target backup file extensions.""The solution's best features are its ease of use and replication.""I think the interface is straightforward""In terms of most valuable features, we are mostly using the Cloud Connect feature. It is flexible because you can use it on-prem and on cloud.""The solution is a user-friendly interface.""It's simply very good software for backup purposes.""I think that the scalability is very good. We can't compare it."

"They are among the top in the world for backup and recovery.""I have found the Media Server Deduplication tool, deployment policies, and agentless features to be the most valuable features.""The solution is stable.""The backup and restore functions are very valuable aspects of the product.""It is important, when we chose a solution, that the customer service/technical support team could help us when we needed it, but the support was good.""The most valuable features are the ability to create a trust relationship and historical reports.""The main thing I like about NetBackup is CloudPoint. You can take a snapshot of the endpoint and back it up with CloudPoint. The data backups are the most important.""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."

Cons
"There is some complexity we have experienced when using the solution that should be simplified.""If you do not use the standard software and you go with a third-party solution such as this one, it might not work the same. There is an integration issue I understand between the database standards.""I have used NetBackup. For heavy workloads or if I need consistent backup and restore, I prefer NetBackup over Veeam Backup Replication.""The automation could be better.""The solution requires a lot of bandwidth.""think backing up from physical servers and ransomware security needs some improvements.""Unfortunately, the software only runs on Windows.""Veeam Backup & Replication could improve by making it more user-friendly."

More Veeam Backup & Replication Cons →

"The pricing is a bit of a concern. If could be lower.""We had some issues with the hardware backup appliance.""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.""Within their product lineup, they need to consolidate down to one product. Veritas doesn't have one product that does everything. So, Veritas can do everything, but you basically need to run two products. I would like them to combine all the capabilities into one release.""The product could improve the user-friendliness and comfort of its environment, especially for those unfamiliar with it.""Extra features come with additional costs.""They need to work on the GUI. It has been the same for the last 10 years.""The implementation process could be simplified to make it quicker."

    Veritas NetBackup is an enterprise-grade backup and recovery software solution. NetBackup securely restores and backs up files, raw partitions, and directories on a server known as a media server. A server protected by NetBackup is referred to as a NetBackup client. During the backup process, the NetBackup client sends the data through the network to the NetBackup media server, which chooses the appropriate storage media as the backup point.

    Veritas NetBackup is a trusted enterprise backup solution that integrates with many of today’s popular databases, such as Microsoft SQL, Oracle, Linux, Unix, and Microsoft operating systems. The solution is able to backup data to tape, disc, and public clouds and keeps the popular Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware hypervisors safe and secure.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Mahdi B., Solution Architect and IT Consultant at Merdasco - Rayan Merdas Data Processing, says, “Veritas integrates well with the cloud, all databases, all operating systems, all hardware, and all software. Veritas also has solid malware and ransomware protection features. From time to time, we face a new kind of attack, and Veritas has always proven to be the best protection solution for some of my customers. Our customers who have faced ransomware attacks were able to recover their data in less than one day without any stress. Veritas is ransomware resilient and because of its implementation, it is not dependent on the operating system to work. Most of the functions of the Veritas software are isolated from the operating system and it's not dependent on the operating systems involved. This is very important. When some of our operating systems are infected by a virus, Veritas still works perfectly and protects our data. This feature is very well implemented in Veritas NetBackup.”

    A PeerSpot user who is a General Manager at a comms service provider relates, “Veritas enterprise has many agents who perform the backup, whether it is a consistent backup or recorded backup. The solution has everything from the snapshot to the multiple database agents.”

    Mir-Ali, Infrastructure Manager - Oracle SCM at a financial services firm, shares, “It covers all kinds of different architectures. Plus, it's very user-friendly and it is very reliable. Reliability is the most important thing because once the backup is done, if it is successful, then we're sure that it was successful and we will be able to restore it.”
