EMC Avamar Review

A very reliable back up with good technical support and excellent stability


What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution as a backup.

What is most valuable?

The backup is the solution's most valuable feature. It's very reliable.

What needs improvement?

The configuration and expansion aspects of the solution need improvement. They're complicated and don't really integrate well.

The solution requires a remote site application in a future release. I believe they are currently working on this. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for six months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is very stable. It's really reliable.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is very good.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very complex.

What about the implementation team?

We handled the implementation ourselves.

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

We were lucky to receive the solution as part of a bundle. It was actually a relatively good price, but there are better solutions, like Veem. However, they can be expensive.

What other advice do I have?

We are using the on-premises deployment model of the solution.

I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
