We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Overall, scalability is great."
"Data Domain Boost has a unique protocol. I don't think with other vendors you get the same efficiency. I work with some the other products, but this solution has amazing efficiency in comparison."
"The solution is very easy to manage. That's its most valuable feature."
"I like the tool set, it's easy to work on and the support is brilliant."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is that it can support both the CIFS and NFS protocols simultaneously."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is deduplication."
"The most valuable feature is the support for plug-ins."
"The backup aspect of the solution is its most valuable feature."
"I would say flexibility is the most important feature of the product. The performance and speed are the best on the market."
"The deduplication is the most valuable feature because it helps to control the overhead."
"This solution should cover more platforms, and there should be more product coverage."
"The solution needs a better gateway between the on-premises and cloud deployment models. We have to work around it or find a third party to assist."
"It should be expanded to include other databases and software. It should also be made easier to restore."
"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."
"There are limitations when using the VTL protocol in extreme cases."
"This product is expensive compared to other storage so the price can be improved."
"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."
"The solution needs to be more user-friendly for the end-users."
"As a new product, there are some things that still need to improve a bit as it matures."
"There is always room for improvement. The compression ratio should be improved as well as the efficiency."
"We scale this product by adding licenses, which are related to capacity."
"The cost is monthly."
"The hardware platform is cost intense, so for small and mid-range, this product is not the best choice."
"The pricing is high compared to the competition and should be reconsidered."
"The licensing costs and pricing model are based on capacity and the license is easy to upgrade."
