Cons
"We would like support for tape space reclaim, using either the same or another pool.""We are looking forward to better stability in future versions.""The software also isn't user-friendly like Convault or Rubrik. The solution errors and management aren't so good in comparison.""The deduplication needs improvement and it could use better integration.""We are able to do direct backups, but analyzing the logs is not straightforward.""It's not easy to integrate. We have to read a lot of documentation in order to configure the solution.""I haven't had a good experience with technical support.

"I have an issue with SnapCenter because sometimes a VM cannot be backed up... The way SnapCenter works is that it makes a backup of all the VMs and then it removes all the old backups. If one VM cannot be backed up for some reason, it has already created a new backup for all the VMs but it cannot remove the old backups. It ends up creating so many backups in VMware and it will cause a performance problem if the condition is not fixed."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It's approximate, but I believe we pay around $20-30,000 a month in licensing.""The pricing of this solution is very good.""If you purchase Avamar, NetWorker is free with Avamar, for one terabyte license capacity.""It is excellent from the pricing point of view. It is free with Data Protection Suite. Similarly, when you purchase Avamar, Dell EMC NetWorker is free with one terabyte license capacity. Its price is very competitive.""The price is a little on the high side, but it's reliable and provides a good service.""It is not very expensive and not very cheap."
