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

Pros
"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."

"The solution is very scalable.""Installing this solution is very simple and takes perhaps five or ten minutes.""If you use the NetBackup Appliance you do not need to have separate media servers and hardware. You can configure the same storage as a media server and master server as well as a storage port. This helps to reduce the hardware costs of the media server.""The most valuable feature of this solution is that it can be used in many different kinds of systems.""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.""They are a large company with good best practices, and they give good support.""We rarely need their help. I would give their technical support an 8.5 out of ten. We are satisfied.""Compared to a homemade installation, this appliance is very stable."

Cons
"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."

More Dell EMC Data Domain Boost Cons »

"They could simplify the process of installing, and provide more space for data during the process.""I would like the ability to recover a single folder within the backup of a virtual machine.""With technical support, it feels like they aren't well trained and it takes forever to get answers out of them.""Technical support for this solution needs to be improved.""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.""I would like to see a product that requires less expertise to manage it.""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.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
