We are Implementation Partners for Symantec NetBackup Appliance and we do implement various design structures as needed forvarious clients for their organization. We at Arrosoft have a department for data protection engineers where we have employees specializing in Symantec NetBackup Appliance. We do work as implementation engineers as well as doing all technical support work.
  • NetBackup Appliance is the best effective backup and restore solution out in the market for enterprise level.
  • Fastest deduplication available in the appliance.
  • First time ever V-ray implementation.
  • Symantec NetBackup Appliance has a dedicated de-duplication tool that comes with the appliance but it would be better if could have the ability to add other de-dupe tool.
Symantec NetBackup Appliance is good for enterprise level backup and restore solutions but not for mid level.

I have been working with Veritas NetBackup for more than 10 years. It is more stable and scalable. Veritas Appliance is a single vendor approach, so end clients can contact a single vendor for all the issues and support. It can scale to the requirements of medium to enterprise sized business.
  • End users can avoid all the testing phases of the software (NetBackup) and it will save their time and effort to start their backup environment.
  • End users can use all the features of NetBackup . Software and hardware compatibility is verified and confirmed from Veritas. End client doesn't need to worry about the software/application(NetBackup)/OS patches.
  • We cannot make an appliance in Cluster Mode.
  • Cost is little bit high for a medium size business.
  • Need to look for flash disks for OS for appliance which can perform with speed.
Symantec NetBackup Appliance comes with a 30 day trial. An end user can test the appliance and its features before they start using the appliance itself.
Support is great so far.

NetBackup Appliance gives an efficient solution for backup, storage, and deduplication. Providing simple, cost-effective backup and recovery for the data center, remote offices, and virtual environments. In our organization NBU ENGINEERS(Department) use Integrated Appliance sometimes. Which provides us with:

1) Scalable Architecture

2) Ultimate virtual machine protection

3) Intelligent End-to-End Deduplication

4) Pre-installed with NetBackup software to provide a comprehensive and integrated backup and storage solution for customers.

- Hardware, software, and support are all managed by Veritas. You won’t need to unbox, load, install, test, manage, and support multiple solution elements such as a server, storage, operating system, backup software, and network connectivity. There’s also no need to integrate with solutions from other suppliers.

- “NetBackup is the most scalable backup & recovery solution”

- Fast performance and scalability

- Cost efficient and simple to manage

  • In our company we are 10 members, we provide lot services to Arrosoft solutions which is our client such as health checkup, statement of work, and through esxi server we provide some services for NetBackup like creating deduplication pool, working on storage devices, And of course on Netbackup Appliances.
  • Our appliance-based data protection approach will be a critical part of the agile data center infrastructure that will facilitate our build out of cloud services-both public and private.
  • NetBackup Appliances provide significant benefits over traditional build-your-own (BYO) media servers as organizations are able to:
  • Implement faster deployments
  • Reduce risk by minimizing planned and unplanned downtime
  • Improve staff efficiency and enhance service levels
  • NetBackup 5200 series —A versatile integrated backup appliance that can be deployed as a master server, or media server, or both, for a NetBackup domain.
  • Vendor lock-in is a big downside because using integrated backup appliances makes the assumption that you want to control all backup processes directly from their backup software. But this is not reality.
  • For example, a database administrator may want to protect the database environment using Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN) rather than using the appliance's backup software.
Some pitfalls of adopting a fully integrated backup appliance include fewer choices for choosing your deduplication storage pool. Software-agnostic deduplication platforms such as Data Domain, Quantum and Sepaton can scale well beyond the storage pools pre-configured in an integrated backup appliance. For large environments, this is no small consideration, because the larger the effective deduplication storage pool, the more efficient data reduction becomes. It can also be argued that fewer, larger storage pools are easier to manage than multiple smaller pools, despite the upfront advantages of a quick deployment afforded by a fully integrated software and hardware appliance.
