Dell EMC PowerProtect DD (Data Domain) Review

​I used Sympana commvault and CA Arcserve. Both are good for small organisations but not up to the mark for enterprise.


What is most valuable?

Fast backup for complex and huge size data.

How has it helped my organization?

My Organisation provides Backup as services. DD useful for shared platform for customers.

What needs improvement?

From a technical point of view, all EMC products have to improve the troubleshoot feature like, log should be in human readable format. Instead of generic errors, they should elaborate a bit more.

For how long have I used the solution?

Past 5 to 6 years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Easy to deploy.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Wrong integration is always the cause of unstable environment. We use clusters environment and EMC Procrustes have redundant parts. We have a stable environment.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Not yet.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

3.5/5

Technical Support:

3.5/5

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I used Sympana commvault and CA Arcserve. Both the products are good for small organisations but not up to the mark for enterprise level.

What about the implementation team?

Through vendor team; try to just know how to fix the hardware and plug the networker cable. Rest of the things we had to do remotely.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

For enterprise level backup solution – No .

What other advice do I have?

I recommend EMC products due to their stability.
