    I thought Symantec bought veritas ages ago - and assimilated the two major enterprise products - NBU and VxVm - into the symantec ent. product line.

    While the Veritas VxVM and VxFS products were an essential product set in large unix shops - particularly solaris shops - i'm not sure how relevant those products will remain as AIX and Linux have viable volume mgmt options with the built-in LVM and solaris itself will have a robust and very capable enteprrise filesystem with ZFS.

    That just leaves NBU, and it doesn't surprise me the symantec support sucks in comparison to when it was a Veritas product. Which is a problem with big NBU investments.

    I'm glad I made the right choice a couple of years back. Proactive backup is a killer feature.
