FYI, this story is more than a year old

Veritas Technologies has been recognised for the second consecutive time as a 2021 Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice in Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions. The recognition was for NetBackup 8.3.

In February 2020 the company received the same acknowledgement for NetBackup 8.2, and was also positioned as a Leader by Gartner analysts in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions for the 15th consecutive time last July.

Central to the Veritas Enterprise Data Services Platform (EDSP), NetBackup is the company's enterprise data protection from the edge to core to cloud. It is designed to help customers reduce risk, optimise cost, strengthen ransomware resiliency, and manage multi-cloud environments at scale.

With unified data protection, Veritas is focused on enabling enterprise customers to protect any workload and improve the resiliency of applications and infrastructure regardless of where data resides.

Gartner defines Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions as providing backup capabilities for upper-end, mid-market and large-enterprise environments.

The Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice is based on feedback and ratings from end-user professionals with experience purchasing, implementing and/or using the product or service.

As of January 17, 2021, Veritas scored an overall rating of 4.8 stars out of 5.0 based on verified IT customers providing reviews to Gartner Peer Insights during the last 12 months.

Veritas executive vice president Products Organisation Deepak Mohan says, “Despite challenging global market conditions, Veritas continues to innovate and deliver world-class solutions.

"We think this commitment is clearly reflected with NetBackup again being recognised by customers on Gartner Peer Insights."

Mohan says, "To us, today's designation further validates our dedication to customers through delivery of market-leading enterprise data protection solutions.

"As we move further into 2021, Veritas will continue to support businesses as they navigate this ever-changing market landscape.

Customer feedback in the Gartner report includes the following statement.

From a network administer in the finance industry: “Veritas NetBackup allows you to have flexibility. For almost anything that has to be backed up, Veritas NetBackup has a solution, it also has an integration with VMWare that gives almost immediate disaster recovery.

"I'm happy with Veritas because it handles backups correctly, mainly problems related to system and folder backups.

From a senior systems analyst in the healthcare industry: “We converted to NetBackup from a collection of other backup products to help with scalability and also to provide coverage for our varied infrastructure.

"The reliability of the environment has been great and helped get us through significant recovery effort during a major security event a few years back. If we had been running on our old infrastructure it would have been a nightmare situation to recover.
