Netbackup DLO

Created: 06 Jul 2010 | 1 comment

We have a Netbackup 7 Enterprise License. We are looking to start backing up Desktops/Laptops. When we went to our vendor they sent us a quote for Netbackup DLO. When I look it up I can't really find anything on it anymore. Is it truely even being sold/supported anymore. Is there a better option or is DLO still a viable option?

DLO is supported, but badly (see http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/346643.htm for example).

We run it and it does the job.

There's been rumors for a long time that Symantec was working on a new solution but I haven't heard anything in many months.

DLO is cheap - it's the disk space that's expensive.  If you need something today, and your user community is not so large that it would be too painful to migrate away later, I wouldn't have a problem with implementing it.  If you do have a large community, I'd suggest that you get an NDA in place and talk to them about their future plans (which isn't a bad plan before ANY major new initiative).
