Asigra

Asigra is very well suited for a mixed environment... physical, virtual servers; endpoint devices; mixed platforms/OS, Windows, Linux, Unix, AIX, MacX server, iphones/ipads, etc...Questions to ask- focus on security, on the encryption key and who has access, how data is protected from unauthorized access.Question: Are you sure you can always restore your data from your current backup repository? How does your backup software protect against data corruption?Question: how man people do you need to manage your current backup and recovery infrastructure and, do you need people with advanced IT skills to run this solution for your company?

Veritas NetBackup

NetBackup is a good product. It is reliable. As our complexity grew with multiple hypervisors, multiple production data centers and needs around fail-over and high availability, the cost was increasing and we had to make a decision to change solutions. NetBackup, at least in our case, does not seem to compress its data streams very well and our backup cycles were growing to the point where one day might not always finish before the next day's jobs were scheduled to begin.

Cons

Asigra

  • Intuitive GUI - Cosmetic
  • Phone App based dashboard / management console - Nice to have
  • Lite version for SOHO / small smb customers

Veritas NetBackup

  • They should be on top of developments so that they can release compatible updates. They lost our business in part because they were slow to react to Hyper-V 2012 R2.
  • Cost is prohibitive for many IT shops, large or small.

Veritas continues to keep up with the backup game. There virtual machine backup capabilities are now top notch, and I believe they will prove valuable when our cloud presence demands a backup solution.

Support is very triage based now, for the price it should be full service support and not a cold hand off for a support case.

Online Training

Asigra

Asigra 1.0
Based on 1 answer
Anything training past level 1 and level 2 is a waste of time. They do not offer training, just an exam and require you to read 2500 pages of their documentation as their training. They are selling you something which you already have. Training exams are far fetched and cover topics hidden within the documentation. A lot of their documentation does not match across itself. They don't even follow the standard versions Major.Minor.ServicePack.Hotfix. They use the MAJOR.MAJOR.MAJOR.Hotfix method, which doesn't match their documentation.They require you to take training in order to keep your engaged hybrid partnership. If you ask me personally, their training is a scam to make more money.

Quick to install, easy to create jobs, schedules and retention policies. No large cycles of setting up backup volumes or trash volumes. Retention job itself configures the BLM functionality so you don't need an expertise to handle the BLM module separately.

Veritas NetBackup

NetBackup is a tried and proven candidate which always appears in Gartner's magic quadrant. We've been using it without any major issues for a very long time. Symantec's 24/7 support has always been there whenever we've experienced issues and we always have access to our account representative. Overall, we've had a great experience. However, please remember that nobody is perfect.
