REST API calls are available for all Delphix activities. Delphix makes it simple to move data between production to other test or QA environments. Through the replacement with a dummy, yet realistic data of the customer or patient data, you reduce the danger of data breaches for any and all copies of data you produce.

Like most enterprise backup applications, Symantec NetBackup (NBU) suffers from complexity. Using and understanding advanced features can be challenging at times. Real world experience is needed to know if they are worth the time to implement. On the other hand I have found NBU relativity easy to use with a little training from just a simple backup scheduling and restore perspective.
Read full review Pros Fast refresh of production data to non-production environments. Easy to automate tasks in Delphix (Bookmark, Rewind, Refresh, etc.) and build pipelines in tools like Jenkins. Enables CI/CD push button build of new virtual database and also the ability to automate regression testing scenarios as well as provide a simple way to expose self-service to developers & testers. The staff at Delphix are knowledgeable and take a genuine interest in helping their customers succeed. The support organization is among the best I've seen. Delphix is good at notifying customers of bugs & features striking a good balance on sending the right amount and type of communication. Delphix is always improving the product and fixing any bugs quickly and transparently. Delphix Data Masking product works as described and allows for multiple streams of masking concurrently to complete masking faster.

Moreover, Delphix web pages do not support AD security groups which eventually results in hassle if you have a large number of users to create and maintain passwords.

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.

Delphix support could be a little better. It seems sometimes we bounce through support engineers until we get one that understands our issues and know how to fix it.

has the capability to sync data with a cloud storage source. This is great for a workstation where data is typically only for one user. However, Netbackup does a much better job for maintaining multiple levels of file restores for Enterprise Servers. Netbackup has a superior management console that does not rely on Cloud services in the event of an internet outage.
Read full review Contract Terms and Pricing Model Veritas NetBackup is very expensive , and I think price is the main reason which some customers don't want to use this solution. The price is fair. Most people have felt this solution was somewhat expensive. licensing model is based on the number of NetBackup clients, agents, servers, and options that NetBackup will be protecting or run on . A customer purchases the same number of licenses as the count of clients, agents, servers, and options.

Avoid technology difficulties to manage data, one ingested Delphix is on charge. Read full review We never experienced a significant system or data loss during the time we used NetBackup. We restored individuals files and small databases based upon user mistakes, but we never had to implement a DR plan. From that aspect, it is difficult to evaluate the ROI. Backups are a commodity service. Features are very similar across multiple tools. Once you decide to stay on-prem or move to the cloud, the list of options are narrowed. Then it becomes a matter of price. From an administration and support perspective, the ROI is low. Vendor technical support is not always responsive. The first two tiers of support are not knowledgeable and their typical recommendation is to read the white paper. My small team spent a lot of time troubleshooting NetBackup, often without much vendor help. Read full review
