Dell EMC PowerProtect Data Manager Review

The deduplication helps to control the overhead


What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case for this solution is for backup and deduplication. 

What is most valuable?

The deduplication is the most valuable feature because it helps to control the overhead. 

What needs improvement?

There is always room for improvement. The compression ratio should be improved as well as the efficiency.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using PowerProtect for about two years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a good tool. We don't have any major problems with it. It has good documentation to figure out how to run it. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is easy to scale within the scope of the applications we have. 

How are customer service and technical support?

We haven't needed to contacted customer support because there is good documentation online. 

How was the initial setup?

As long as there is support for how to use it, nothing is complex. The time it takes to deploy depends on the environment and who handles it. The average time it takes to deploy is around a day. 

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it an eight out of ten. I would recommend it. There is nothing that needs improvement at the moment. So far all of the features have been good. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
