We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is the deduplication rate."
"It is very simple to perform an upgrade of the system and the environment."
"It backs up our Windows systems and our Linux systems and everything."
"The solution can be used for all Office 365 applications."
"The price could be lowered slightly, to make it more competitive."
"The two-factor authentication is missing from Dell products."
"After resizing and compression, the system continuously runs out of space. Dell EMC doesn't do automatic cleanup or other things, so we constantly have to manually go in there or work with Dell support on this. The solution has not been working as advertised."
"It would be nice if the solution was more complete. Many customers are looking for a single solution or silo that they can manage everything from. It would be nice, instead of having different products, if everything a client needed was in one solution."
"The licensing is billed on a monthly basis. Dell is bundled so that when you order IDPA, you get everything together with the license."
