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

HYCU Backup & Recovery for Nutanix

The SQL database structure and application-consistent snapshots to local storage and recovery are very well done. The interface is nicely made and it is an intuitive design that needs very little training to use. The Restore from the Cloud function is cumbersome and slow, that could be improved by downloading and finding parts needed, instead of the entire backup media.

Pros

Data Protector

  • 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

Data Protector

  • 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.

  • The rollout of the file level backup is still not there.
  • The Restore from the Cloud function is not ideal and needs lots of work.
  • Backups being in native format would be nice for certain files.

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

Since we've used the HCYU solution, it has helped us achieve a policy of backups with compliance, and has been super effective.

Alternatives Considered

Data Protector

We liked that HP Data Protector could go back to a specific recovery date where IBM TSM could not, in certain cases.

HYCU Backup & Recovery for Nutanix

I have used several backup programs, I selected 2 just to be brief. The best thing I see with HYCU over Veeam is that it is much more difficult for an attacker if inside the network to gain access to the backups and objects saved in the backup storage. The best part about HYCU over Bacula is that it is much easier to use and more stable. The interface alone will save you from time and energy using other products
