Middle of the pack

  • August 15, 2017
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
It is familiar, except one version (I think 12.x), the rest is user friendly and intuitive enough. Works with all possible backup targets including cloud and offsite storage, new backup devices are easy to configure, notifications are stable.
What do you dislike?
The product itself is not super stable and job failures are common. Requires supervision, unlike Dell products and Acronis
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Backinh up servers on several networks
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you have a good budget, I would strongly suggest Dell Appasure

Amazing Backup Software for an affordable price!

  • August 09, 2017
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
This is by far the best backup software for the price and for a wide range of business needs. I personally have used Backup Exec since 1992 until 2017 and all versions have been progressively improved.

The GUI now makes it very easy to use and intuitive.
What do you dislike?
Besides very minor problems occasionally and some intervention is needed it is still quite automated.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
All backup needs are meet for a small to moderately large corporate organization without getting too expensive.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Best general solution for all round backup.

Only for small data set

  • August 08, 2017
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Backup guides you for a complete back up
What do you dislike?
Cannot backup large TB. Takes too long.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We need data to be backed up. Veritas makes it easy with Wizard to backup and restore. Their support is awesome.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you have small data set, use Veritas. Make sure your backup schedule will work with Veritas.

Backup Exec is a very efficient software backup system

  • August 08, 2017
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
It is extremely customizable and powerful. Allows numerous media types to write to as well as ability to customize jobs including unique schedules, selection lists, and exceptions.
What do you dislike?
Software often has little bugs that make it a pain to administer. Oftentimes, it needs tweaking to jobs, settings, and server settings. It does not overwrite older backups as it should despite setting retention settings. This can sometimes require manually logging into the server in question and clearing out older data to make room for new jobs.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
If configured correctly, the software does a great job of backing up essential data and systems including complicated SQL and Exchange software. Also, it backs up virtual machines as a whole to provide quicker restoration in a crisis situation. This has been used and tested across many clients and works very well.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Great and affordable software, but needs designed properly around media storage to account for proper retention.

Just okay

  • August 08, 2017
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Used it for several years and found it just okay. Found it combursom at times.
What do you dislike?
I FOUND IT OFTEN CONFUSING TO REVIEW BACKUP INFORMATION. THE SCREENS WERE DATED AND REQUIRED TO MANY CLICKS TO DRILL DOWN TO THE INFORMATION I REQUIRED.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
DAILY BACKUPS OF COMPANY DATA.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
TRY IT. IT COULD WORK FOR YOU.

Been a gold standard for many users but still cumbersome and resource intensive.

  • August 03, 2017
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
For non-profit clients is super cheap through vendors. Unfortunately I don't have much else positive.
What do you dislike?
In short... everything! Heavy resource requirements. Cloud based backup support is lacking. Constantly crashing and dropping clients when a backup is missed.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
They almost give it away to non-profits which affords them some type of backup plan.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
There are better solutions out there that give a better sense of security.

Backup Exec is a time tested solution.

  • August 01, 2017
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Ease of use and a program that has been around for a long time. Backup Exec is a standard for business. I have used this product since the late 1990's in various applications. In addition to the age there is backward compatibility which allows use with older archives without the need for a converter or migration process.
What do you dislike?
Backup exec is difficult to use with differential backups. This could be improved. The other thing is the user interface is very dated.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
On-site backup services along with some cloud based backups to systems like AWS.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
There are many solutions for backup - Backup Exec is a enterprise level backup system. There is some investment in purchase and setup but it's worth it.
