When my backups bother to finish, they've usually go errors

  • April 13, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Backup Exec has a storied history and lots of legacy documentaiton.
What do you dislike?
Between moving from Symantec to Veritas, suddenly switching from a 20xx to just an XX release, losing doc during the migration, released unfinished FP/SP/HFs, poor RDX support and slow VM support, the list of things I dislike about Backup Exec is too long to fit in this review.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Backup Exec is - in theory - for taking backups.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Consider your options before committing to living in Backup Exec purgatory.

Dependable however competition has surpassed it

What do you like best?
Backup Exec is great at backing up SQL databases and bare metal machines. It provides solid functionality with great tape support.
What do you dislike?
The product itself has really stagnated in the market over the last few years. It missed the virtual infrastructure train and has only recently managed to regain some foothold, however Veeam has really strives in this segment. The support line is also quite lackluster however I feel it has improved slightly lately.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We are backing up our bare metal SQL clusters with Backup Exec. It works without fault and is very dependable.

A Smart Way To Backup

  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
I like the scheduled/automated backup tasks Symantec Backup offers. The program runs on both a 64 bit as well as a 32 bit Windows Server OS.
What do you dislike?
Symantec Backup software can require a little bit of time to learn all the features offered by this product. After trying different features available, you'll be able perform many backup tasks.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
In order to have backups of our data on tape and stored offsite, Symantec Backup software comes in handy to get this job done. It provides different backup software modules that you can purchase separately on an as needed basis.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
I do recommend Symantec Backup software as a robust program to backup your data onto tape. It does a great job running scheduled backups onto a tape unit library system.

Backup-Exec, Great for big budget

  • March 23, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
The software was easy to use and made backups and restores easy. we ended up moving away from this product as it got to expensive. we moved to Microsoft Backup and miss the Backup-Exec days for the features but could no longer justify the price.
What do you dislike?
pricing is about the only thing we didn't like about this product,.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Backup to tape, backup to disk.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you can get good pricing, or have a bigger budget, this is great software.
