"Setting up Backup Exec is straightforward. It took less than two weeks to get it up and running. You need maybe two people at most if you have a Veritas-certified engineer."
"It is responding very well, and its performance is good. It has a lot of options. For backup, you can connect it to a cloud or a physical hard drive. They also provide an API for integration with different platforms and products. However, we have not integrated it with another product."
"The solution is very fast. It does not take a long time to backup everything."
"The solution is good for small and medium-sized businesses."
"The flexibility is very good."
"The backup potential of the solution is very good. It's protected us in the past very well and allowed us to get up and running after an attack with minimal loss."
"The one thing for the last 12 months which has been very good for Veritas was the instance-based license. This means that you're able to license per instance, not only per physical server."
"Veritas is good for small environments."
"It's very comprehensive. It's one of the first brands to appear in its field."
"The most valuable features are the ease of administration and the ease of configuration."
"It's a good solution. It's pretty stable."
"The most valuable feature is that it is simple to use."
"If you keep it for too long and the catalog gets really big, the application tends to move slowly."
"It is currently missing the dynamic backup feature for virtual machines, which is available in NetWorker. I can create politics in NetWorker to add virtual machines with specific tags, but I cannot do this in Backup Exec, which is a minus point for me. Currently, a user has to send a request to the Backup administrator to add a machine to the backup, but I should be able to create rules to automatically add a new machine to the backup. This kind of functionality is very important in current times, especially when we are using cloud solutions. I should be able to create more than one stream in a policy and specify how many streams I want to run in parallel in one policy. Currently, I have to manually create more policies to backup more than one virtual machine at the same time. Their support can also be improved in terms of response time."
"One area that needs improvement is SQL backup. Backup Exec doesn't support higher availability."
"The price of this solution is very high."
"I have experienced some errors, such as failures, but there have not been very many."
"We've experienced some performance issues with Backup Exec. The backup jobs take too long to complete."
"Its scalability should be improved."
"The integration with SaaS applications like Office 365 needs to be improved."
"In the future, we would like to see support for virtualized machines."
"Licensing has been a struggle. It went from bronze, silver to gold. Licensing needs more sophistication. It has features that are sold as separate add-ons."
"Technical support can be improved."
"The usability of the solution isn't the best."
