Networker is a good backup product. It's lightweight, and I haven't seen the client itself cause issues on any of our servers in the 11+ years I've used it. Like most enterprise products Networker needs to be setup properly and tuned for the environment...

Data Protector is very easy to use and once you get the hang of it it becomes second nature. It works really well with standard OS backups.

Hold times for customer support other than that nothing
