The backup is the solution's most valuable feature. It's very reliable.We sell Avamar with Data Domain. Data Domain and Avamar work really well together and their compression ratios are very high compared to Veeam, Commvault, and all the other backup software on the market.I think the brand is very good. Support is also very nice for end users and integration with EMC products for businesses.It was very simple to deploy the solution to the client that you wanted to backup.We love the instant recovery functionality. It's very useful.The product is good for backups.We have a lot of backups, and this tool helps us with the RMAN Backup.

Cons
In the most recent version of premium plus the replication has been removed, and it should re-added to the solution.The only problem with the solution is that when I change the drive capacity, it has to do a full backup. It's a problem when I have five servers to backup. When I only want to change the size of the drive, I have to do a full backup that can take one week.It should be easier to switch between backup locations. We have multiple data storage locations and sometimes one of those storages need to be replaced. It would be nice if they made it easier to reconfigure the backup configuration.Every time I change the disc, I have to do a full backup.We cannot restore each user's mailbox. Each user's mailbox should be independently restorable. Also, this solution is very slow. If you select all of the servers, it runs for a long time... It needs to be faster. Finally, If anything happens to one server we should be able to switch to another server.

The configuration and expansion aspects of the solution need improvement. They're complicated and don't really integrate well.I think they could also move more towards cloud solutions. It already has some cloud tiering, but I think that could be more extensive. They should work with all cloud providers and I think in the future they will be on all cloud platforms.The interface could be more helpful for people.It was challenging to back up our Exchange database, which is one of the reasons we did not continue using this solution.The licensing model is not very flexible. Every time we upgrade our storage size, we need to upgrade the Avamar license.The client caches and deduplication system have a few problems.There are limitations when trying to use this solution with Hyper-V.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Normally our customers purchase the premium plus license, rather than the standard one, which provides more options.We only have the maintenance of three standard UDP licenses. Each license is 50 Euro. There are some additional costs for the storage and software but it has nothing to do with the UDP.I do not work with the pricing or licensing issues of the solution for our organization.

The price is the main thing I'd like to see them change. If they can come down in price, that would be a good thing. It's very cost competitive in the entry level range, because Veeam pricing is much cheaper than Avamar.I'm not sure, but perhaps the pricing could be done better at the moment.This solution is less expensive than Veeam for us, although it depends on the customer because we get a great discount.
