What do you like best?

Great performance, stable product, flexibility with licensing, easy to configure backups and wide integration options such as oracle, sql, sharepoint, etc.

What do you dislike?

Restore of RMAN can be difficult. also, the multiple stream backups is not as smooth as single stream backups.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a very good product ofcourse depending on the company's requirements. It is definitely worth inviting them for a demo and have all your questions answered which would help you evaluate if it is a good fit for your company. This product can fit most of the environments though.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Local storage requirements, database testing in the development environment. The backups run fast and performance wise the managementis very happy with it.

"HP data protector"

What do you like best?

HP data protector has many integration components for all sorts of systems, SQL , exchange, Sharepoint, etc..

What do you dislike?

all the different components needed to make it work with various system can sometimes be confusion and often one component or another will not work properly and due to this you have to TRY many different paths to get the proper support person who knows the component you are dealing with. many time I had to rely on GOOGLE search to find the solution because HP support took too long to get to the right person.

Recommendations to others considering the product

make sure you include everything you will need and all components in your quote-- we found we needed several additional and COSTLY licenses in addition to what we were originally told

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

it does provide a backup solution for multiple systems over large WAN environment

"Overall good product."

What do you like best?

When it's installed, the most valuable feature is ease of use. It's a bit tricky to install straight out of the box and set up, because of the way the licensing module works. Otherwise t's very easy to use.

What do you dislike?

It is a bit slow when you use it for long periods of time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Set it up carefully

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We do not use it the way it's supposed. It's kind of like a back stop. For example, if an engineer accidentally deletes something, he raises a ticket and with a request to get his file back. Normally, the backup routines are more complicated.

"Storage Engineer with 6 years experience using Data Protector as the sole backup software."

What do you like best?

Data Protector is very easy to use and once you get the hang of it it becomes second nature. It works really well with standard OS backups.

What do you dislike?

We have had difficulties with various database backups. We had problems with writing multiple stream backups to D2D, than copy that backup to tape for DR. At the DR site we were not able to restore any of the multi stream backups and our DR test failed because of it. To get around this issue we had to switch to single stream backups and backups were taking upwards to 18 hours to complete (not good).

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a good product and when used with HP StoreOnce you'll see significant benefits with its speed and ease of use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our shop has been using DP for over 15 years. It's what we know and hard to get rid of something you're so used to. We are using DP for all of our standard OS backups and write all backups to HP's StoreOnce deduplication device. These backups run very fast and we have great success with this method. We also do object copy jobs across the country to fulfill our offsite and DR requirements.

" HPE Data Protector review"

What do you like best?

Relatively easy to configure backups, multiple integrations component options (Oracle, SQL, SharePoint, Exchange, etc).

Licensing is pretty complex for this app. RMAN restores can be a pain (but later versions of DP have fixed quite a bit of that as an issue).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Standard (Disaster recovery, Database migration, Legal storage requirements, Dev database testing).
