Dell EMC Avamar Review

A powerful solution for protecting virtual machines that's very stable and easy to implement

What is our primary use case?

We use the solution to protect our virtual machine.

What is most valuable?

We love the instant recovery functionality. It's very useful. 

What needs improvement?

We found some difficulty around co-locating with restructuring. I think the co-location between Avamar and vCenter, in my opinion, is not the best.

We like the easy integration with VMware and vCenter, but we'd like to click a button for any kind of virtual machine and then click on backup and restore. It would make things easier if this could be done in a few clicks. Right now, it's a bit more in-depth.  

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for about three years.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support does a very good job. They are very reactive when we come to them with issues.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. It was very easy to deploy the solution.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing model is not very flexible. Every time we upgrade our storage size, we need to upgrade the Avamar license.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model.

I think it is a powerful tool. We use it on both our production and disaster sites.

I would rate the solution nine out of ten.
