Data Protector

HP Data Protector is suited for medium to large environments that are mixed platform shops, it can handle backup and restores of most major databases and MS applications along with Unix and Linux.

  • Easy to install and set up cell manager, deploy clients and configure backup devices. Integration options for databases and virtual environments makes backup and restore of these systems easier through the GUI.
  • Scheduling options allow the user to set specific times for backups of a host or group them together with the advance scheduling option and set priorities of which systems get access to backup devices.
  • Licensing options are tiered and can scale from a very small environment to a larger one when needed.

Cons

  • Single file restore has always been an issue but hopefully will be added soon.
  • Physical server backup restoring has always been tricky but achievable.

  • Tech support - every person I spoke with had a different idea on how to fix a problem. Many times they caused the problem resulting in double or triple work.

It was just not a good fit for our organization. We have an EMC SAN, Data Domain backup storage, and VMWare. Without any other HP software or hardware in our environment I do not see the need to continue using a product that is not well integrated with our other brands
