Quotes From Members

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

Pros
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
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
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.
