Our company implemented 7.6 (FA), and it went fine. However, the estimation time was showed as 4 hours. but it took almost a day (18 hours). So, be careful to take enough time in advance.

Hi Abdul Ahad (@A. Ahad Alam​), Well, thanks for the valued query to the community. I will try my best to recommend Veritas NetBackup vs Dell EMC NetWorker but first can you please advise which backup software you are currently using for your backups? If you are not using any of them then the first thing to work on will be the sizing of your existing & forecasted Front-End and Back-End data with the daily growth rate and your organization's backup policies (including backup cycles, retention policies, then archival of your data later) you are going to plan and execute for the next 3 to 10 years might be more... Because the vital and core count for any available good backup software is what features it can provide and how many of them will be of your use which will be addressing your planned and existing backup policies. Well, if this information is already in place and you just need a 'Vs' info then both are good whichever suits and addresses your backup requirements and policies the most. Dell EMC NetWorker provides unification of your backups with a range of protection with rapid recovery of your backups across cloud, physical and virtualized environments and Veritas NetBackup is also doing the same from Edge to the Core to the Cloud. Hence, the decision is dependent upon the actual requirement and your backup policies totally! Sufyan Ali Khan +923018224536

Hi, I'm preparing a technical comparison between Veritas NetBackup BMR and Acronis Backup for our Leadership team. Specifically, I need an in-detail & point-wise description of the Acronis Backup solution. My setup: ~150 systems. Thank you in advance!

Technically NetBackup is a more reliable and comprehensive product as compare to Acronis. NetBackup has integration with all major business products like MS SQL Server, MS Exchange Server, IBM, SAP, HANNA, Share point and Active Directory. You can backup and restore full VM in NetBackup as well as BMR too for P2V. Acronis has limited features in comparison with Netbackup. Netbackup is a vast product. If you need any assistance you may drop a few lines and I will help you out.

I think it's not possible to compare "enterprise backup tools" (NetBackup) with simple "imaging tools" :)
