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.
Netbackup is suited for every environment like Windows, Linux, Suse, Red Hat, Oracle, SQL, SAP, MySQL, Mongo DB, VM, BMR.

For SMEs veritas would be an expensive solution because its an enterprise level solution may not be recommended for smaller organization. Backup administrator with high skill may requied for such solution which is also not affordable by them.
