NetBackup - is it worth it?
I am looking for some advice and information here...
We run ARCserve 12 (SP2) in our data centre, and I think it's coming to the end of it's lifespan as a backup solution. We're backing up multiple SQL DBs, 1 of which is our SAP production DB at around 4.1TB. Backups take over 18 hours at times, and that's no longer good enough.
I want to propose that we look at replacing it in the new year, but I'd like to know the following:
1. Anybody got good experience (both problems, work-arounds, usability etc) with NetBackup and the disk component of it (PureDisk)?
2. Website which has objectively reviewed NetBackup and compared it to other applications?
3. Whether or not it's financially worthwhile and the benefits/cons of installing it?
