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

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.
