Data Protector

I believe it is very well suited for the Unix/Linux brands but once you get into the Windows side of things there are much better options out there. The other problem is that the data is in a format that only works with HP Data Protector and cannot be migrated to another system should things go that direction in the future. Once you are locked into HP Data Protector you are truly locked in

Cons

Actifio Enterprise

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

Data Protector

  • Granular recovery extension plugins need to be documented better and kept up to date, this would aid in the installation of these plugins.
  • When deploying Granular Recovery Extensions for VMware and Exchange, security options of the cell need to be turned off (Secure Cell and Encrypted Communication).
  • Reporting on scheduled backups via the advanced scheduling option are non-existent, this needs to be available.

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
