We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

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.

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
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.

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
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 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.
