What do you like best?

It takes backup of almost every system that we have been using old and new for years. You can manage everything in one page like backup, restore, active jobs, policies, storages, tape drives, media etc. It supports taking backups for physical and virtual servers over network or cable connection. Deduplication feature is perfect for decrease backup size. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Installation is easy, implementation is hard. In general, it needs agent installation to client servers. Adding clients to backup management server is so hard!

It has some stability issues as to wiindows services crash, losing tape connection etc. And some oracle version backup jobs have always problems whatever you do to fix. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

In heterogeneous environment, in general, every client needs agent to be installed on itself and it is very hard to configure. Also create alarms or watch for storage free spaces. It is hard free up storage space and needs to work on CLI. This product needs professional assistance sometimes. It is better that if you seperate logging and reporting tools on another servers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been reviewed or audited by governmental associations, PCI DSS or other audit companies. We should prove to them backups and restore tests are running well, and show logs and actions on system so that we've been showing all with ease in Netbackup. Our critical systems are running on physical and virtual. It includes DB and file backups and other applications. All we take backup and restore with success or with little problems.
