Now will they please sell off Veritas
Since Symantec bought Veritas their premier backup software Netbackup has become a big pile of SH!T. Like Norton, they have found a way to pervert it. My favorite support call memory was watching one of my cell mates banging the handset of his phone on his desk it whent like this: He screamed No, some East Indian name! Netbackup!!!!!.... do you know what it is!!!? Bang! Bang! Bang! Put me through to tier 2 RIGHT F@#$ing NOW!!!! No? Slam! as the hand set slams the base.
I almost fell out of my chair laughing so hard.
He was calling about a performance problem with synthetic backups and a VTL in version 6. It turns out that it never worked properly and 10K monkeys with typewriters could backup 2TB faster. He finally got through to someone in North America who admitted that it never worked as billed.
Kinda sounds like using the installer to remove Norton AV but with Veritas you can't uninstall $200K in licenses. I wish Sun would have boughten Veritas instead of Symantec (if they could); at lease they would have killed it without the client misery :_)
