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.

It is very capable of scaling and very good for heterogeneous environments.We have good data backup coverage.The most valuable feature is that the backup and restoring process is very fast.Compared to a homemade installation, this appliance is very stable.We rarely need their help. I would give their technical support an 8.5 out of ten. We are satisfied.They are a large company with good best practices, and they give good support.The intelligent policies feature is used in order to protect the VMware infrastructure. One of the things that makes a big difference for our company is the usage of these intelligence policies. The system automatically provides extra protection for any VMware server application or service. From a backup administrator's point of view, this is what we call peace of mind. It reduces the workload and therefore reduces resources needed from the company.The most valuable feature of this solution is that it can be used in many different kinds of systems.

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.

I would like to see support for databases such as MySQL and MongoDB.This solution has to have better integration with the cloud, as well as with other solutions such as Business Intelligence products.We had some problems with the backup of the physical server.The scalability isn't great. Every time you want to add storage, you can't just add a little bit, you need to add a lot.They need to make the licensing more clear. They should give all of the licensing details for the portals and be more clear. I have accidentally purchased the incorrect license because it's not clear.I would like to see a product that requires less expertise to manage it.The only drawback for NetBackup, and of course for Veritas, is that they have stuck to the same environment and to the same UI - User Interface. This needs to be improved in future releases. It needs to be more dynamic.Technical support for this solution needs to be improved.
