"This solution is very stable."
"It's a good product that can be integrated easily with the Data domain."
"The solution is very user-friendly. After setting up five machines for our customers we teach them how to set up the agent and start doing their backups. It is very easy for them once they see how to do it, they like to do it on their own."
"There are no problems in terms of stability."
"When you reach out to your maximum license availability, or you exceed your license limit, NetWorker never stops doing your backups."
"It's easy to use."
"NetWorker is fast and reliable."
"It can support many different versions, both newer and older."
"This is a product that has been on the market for a while and they have mastered the backup process, especially when backing up to tape, for most environments."
"I have found the Media Server Deduplication tool, deployment policies, and agentless features to be the most valuable features."
"NetBackup is highly stable. We have more than 1,800 policies that run every day."
"The most valuable feature is that you don't need any special connectivity - you just need to give your seller name, and then it automatically discovers all your virtual machines, which is a great benefit, especially in a bigger environment."
"It's a good product, it does what we want it to do."
"It is important, when we chose a solution, that the customer service/technical support team could help us when we needed it, but the support was good."
"It's durable — we achieve what we expect from it."
"The deduplication feature is useful. Deduplication and compression features are what I like about NetBackup."
"It's complex in nature."
"When you're working with VMware, you need to use vProxy machines. You have to install the vProxy for every host in the VMware environment."
"It is not easy to understand and deploy. It is complex in nature. Simplicity is not there. When we deploy it, the customer always needs some training from us. To make it user friendly, there should be one agent that can be used to back up every product. Dell EMC NetWorker uses so many user agents. In PowerProtect Data Manager, you can just install its VM, import that VM into vCenter, and you can start to do backups directly from vCenter. However, in Dell EMC NetWorker, you always need one server, and from that server, you need to initiate all backups. You must know the interface and the CLI. It is not user friendly. It would be a great feature if we can deploy Dell EMC NetWorker on a virtual machine, like Avamar. The additional features that are required in Dell EMC NetWorker are already available in PowerProtect Data Manager and Avamar. Therefore, there is no need to enhance Dell EMC NetWorker. It would be better if they can just rename it to PowerProtect Data Manager or Avamar."
"The initial setup is complex."
"The data storage capabilities should be improved."
"It would be beneficial to have a single user interface for all of the features."
"The solution could improve by having more integration."
"There should be total integration of the replication and cloud logistic back up on cloud."
"Planning for the implementation takes a lot of time."
"Maybe they could add more cloud solutions."
"You cannot tell what your costs are going to be by using the dashboard, which is something that should be improved."
"The security and performance could improve with Veritas NetBackup. The security could be improved by protecting the data from attackers."
"Technical support only gets back to us the following morning."
"It would be better if it had a cloud integration feature. I would like to use a single product for the cloud instances and the on-premise instances. The price could also be better."
"When the customer is using SaaS applications like Office 365, the integration falls short and needs to be improved."
"Lacks a reporting feature."
NetBackup reduces the staggering complexity of enterprise data protection, outpaces the relentless growth of the data center, and increases the agility IT needs to transform from traditional cost center to service-oriented business enabler. Enterprises trust Symantec.
