I am a long time evangelist for Enterprise Vault.  I would definitely recommend Symantec EV to my collegues.  I support Norton AV products and will continue to recommend them to my friends.

So far, no real issues with it in our agency. Have already recommended it to colleague s. Now depending on how well I can get the Sharepoint content backups to run, I may be recommending it more  :-)

Actually I recommend NetBackup to everybody because I think is the strongest Enterprise backup software. Of course it has things to work on, but it's still the best.

If this post was helpful, please take a second to vote or mark as solution.

When I think of how we use to do backups.

A tape drive per server. My morning was going in and pushing eject buttons. Then go back and change tapes. Log which tapes were for which servers. And the day we cleaned at drives. It would take forever!.

Now the library cleans the drives for me. Netbackup give me one look to see what I need to see, and reports of how things are going.

This is heaven compared to the old days!

I don't have to know how to spell....I work on Unix.

I have recommended Symantec products to many colleagues. I have worked as a consultant working with both Symantec NetBackup and Tivoli products and have recommended NetBackup to man y of my customers as well.  If there is one thing I would have Symantec improve upon it is their technical support. When I call in with an issue, it is not very likely that a first line help desk person will be able to resolve my problem and it takes too long to get to back-line support. Otherwise... keep up the good work.

     I'm recommending Backup Exec as the best overall solution for Backup in an Windows Environment(Small to Medium Size Companies). This is having tried also some competitor products like ArcServe or Legato Networker. Although for Enterprise environment i would definitely recommend NetBackup... it has the 2 features that i lack mostly in Backup Exec environments:

1. Data Multiplexing.

2. End User restore option.

I'd recommend NetBackup 7 with integrated dedup. It's allowed our environment of 3000+ servers to complete backups in record time on previously difficult clients. It's also enabled us to better manage storage, image lifecycles, and offsite replication.

Great all around product!

The contest is open to all the users located globally. Due to shipping and other custom duties, the flip camera is only for winners located in the NAM region. For the rest, who'd win the contest would receive an equivalent of  the flip camera ie., 1000 connect points which could be redeemed for rewards in their country.

So, time for you to enter the drawing!

As an industry leader Symantec has dedicated and successfully penetrated into this market with great products that offer many features and the ability to custom fit services to clients needs. This is a highly successful model to me and my clients and offers a robust and agile way to economically fulfill services and support needs. With the current offerings and the stability and longevity of symantec, I recommend them as an industry leader to each of my existing clients and new clients. Backup services are no exception to this and as such I feel symantec's commitment to product excellence will stand and succeed.

We use EndPoint and Backup Exec and are very satisfied with the products... however when we have needed assistance it has either been incomplete, hard to find, or techs have been hard to understand and terse.

Being a consultant, I keep having to recommend solutions to assist my clients, and I find myself frequently recommending Symantec products, especially SEP for Anti Virus, Symantec - Vontu for DLP, and Symantech Backup software.

Would of course like to have more interaction with Symantec. and more knowledge awareness sessions.

Would also like to see SEP cover mobile devices.

Cheers,

Lalit

I am working as a solution architect for SI company. Since when I have started my journy I have recommended Symantec products to most if the collegues and friends and many more companies too...

And even after recommending for many of them I have impemented successfully the way it was promised.

Now since I have many references for Symantec products who are having "Peaceful Sleep" I recommend Symantec products to users very often to give them "Peaceful Sleep"

I love seeing Symantec evolve.  Symantec has great support and response times.  I highly recommend it.  I kinda wish the original creators of ghost, back when it was by Norton, would return to possibly add a fresh take on it.

I think that is for the Flip Cam itself...if the winner is outside of the USA/Canada, then the 1000 points come into being.

Did you notice the other bit in the rules:

"...If a Canadian entry is chosen in the Drawing, the entrant will be required to correctly answer a time limited, mathematical skill-testing question before qualifying as a winner...."

Why?!! surprise

...maybe they don't think that Canadians know their stuff? Jokes aside, could be a legal thing that they need to comply with. I have seen that before on a Symantec competition...

Yes, I would recommend SEP and all its products to anyone from a CIO, CEO to my friends and neighbours.

Having been in the I.T industry for over 10 years - all Symantec products have proven reliable, compatible and effecient with dealing with different aspects of I.T.
