Overall Satisfaction with Veritas Backup Exec

Veritas Backup Exec provides good replication and compression features from a simple dashboard. We use it on exchange and SQL for mass files and folders. We find that for Exchange, SQL and even for single files we are able to restore the resource process as well.
  • Vertias Backup Exec allows my clients to restore a backup from a specific point in time.
  • Works well and has good integration with technologies such as VMware.
  • Restoration can sometimes be slow.
  • The cost is quite high.
  • Data is too valuable to not have a trusted backup solution. Veritas Backup Exec provides that.
  • The cost is high, but worth it.
Both Veritas Backup Exec and Acronis Backup provide reliable backup and recovery solutions, however Vertias Backup Exec is much more scaleable, and better suited for larger business environments.
The beauty of the solution is that you can rely on it. It offers a quick recovery time when it's backing up items. The way it recovers data is excellent.
