Highlights from customer feedback in the Gartner report include:
- “Veritas NetBackup allows you to have flexibility. For almost anything that has to be backed up, Veritas NetBackup has a solution, it also has an integration with VMWare that gives almost immediate disaster recovery. I’m happy with Veritas because it handles backups correctly, mainly problems related to system and folder backups,” wrote a network administer in the finance industry.
- “We converted to NetBackup from a collection of other backup products to help with scalability and also to provide coverage for our varied infrastructure. The reliability of the environment has been great and helped get us through significant recovery effort during a major security event a few years back. If we had been running on our old infrastructure it would have been a nightmare situation to recover,” wrote a senior systems analyst in the healthcare industry.
- NetBackup can protect important data across on premise deployments and in private and public cloud environments,” wrote a petrochemical IT support staff in the energy and utilities industry.
