Pros
They are the best support that we have had so far. When you contact or email them, they are very quick to respond. They always have someone available for us. That's what we want as a customer, we want someone to listen to us.Most important is its ease of use. You plug it in, follow the steps, and you have your backup file.Whenever you have a crash or your service is not working, you can just live-boot the machine and have your service up and running.The product is easy to install and use while doing what it is expected to do.We perform backup drills to test the functionality, and we don't have any problems.Easy, immediate protection for data that is virtually infinitely scalable.The scalability of the product is fine.

This product's unique protocol make it superior to competing products and alternate solutions.Data Domain is valuable, especially to restore data. For normal data, the restore from Data Domain is very efficient and fast.The functionality is very good. DD Boost and DD entry replication are used in almost all backup concepts. Those are the most used features.The backup aspect of the solution is its most valuable feature.The most valuable feature is the support for plug-ins.The most valuable feature of this solution is deduplication.The most valuable feature of this solution is that it can support both the CIFS and NFS protocols simultaneously.I like the tool set, it's easy to work on and the support is brilliant.

Cons
We cannot backup Sun Micro systems. They are not currently supported.When we manage the box physically, we don't have as much control as we do when we manage from the cloud. The best management is from the cloud.I would like to see the Live Boot feature extended to Hyper-V machines, in addition to VMware machines.Some features like CIFS are not supported that would help speed and flexibility.I would like to see the automatic backup of critical applications to the cloud.The solution needs fine-grained backup capabilities to service individual users. But this is a minor issue considering all that the product does.It is not always stable.

Connectivity with the cloud and on-premises needs improved gateways.The experience of restoring VMware or Veeam Backup is difficult, when the backup you are using is a solution for backup, which is already having a deduplication. When you try to restore from Data Domain, it doesn't work perfectly, because Data Domain is already having a deduplication as well.The multi-tier functionality can be improved, but it is quite good. They could improve replication and perhaps support additional sharing network protocols. I would also like to see better implementation of NFS Version 3, but it is already implemented and quite usable as it is.The solution needs to be more user-friendly for the end-users.There are some limitations where you cannot use it as a shared server or as a file server, it is limited for the only backup.This product is expensive compared to other storage so the price can be improved.There are limitations when using the VTL protocol in extreme cases.It would be nice if they could have the same tool set right from the smallest to the biggest modules, but being specific frame dependent.

Pricing and Cost Advice
You don't need to buy an extra license or agent. With one box, you have licenses for any amount of devices that you want to backed up for whatever is backed up.You have two options, which we have. We pay for it bi-monthly. Then, you can purchase the project hours and support annually.The price of the five-year contract was approximately three million Rupees ($42,000 USD).Low, fixed cost with great savings.

The pricing is high compared to the competition and should be reconsidered.The hardware platform is cost intense, so for small and mid-range, this product is not the best choice.The cost is monthly.We scale this product by adding licenses, which are related to capacity.
