Cons
"It can probably have integration with other OEMs. It should also have more features for ransomware protection.""I would like to see better integration and support for backing up to cloud providers such as Alibaba Cloud.""They need to make migration easier.""I would like to see integration with public cloud.""When you use Data Domain, you have to have at least 20% free space so it can work properly. Sometimes we struggle with that, because we wanted to use all the free space, but then Data Domain becomes really slow. I understand that 20% is needed to process all the data, and doing the duplication and compression and all that, but it would be a big improvement if they did not require that 20%, because it is just too much to have available.""Its management can be improved.""First-time integrations are difficult in NetWorker. NetWorker software needs to be simplified. It's very complex.""The price could be improved."

More Dell EMC PowerProtect DD (Data Domain) Cons »

"I would like to see improvements made to the user interface.""In the next release, I would like the deduplication and compression included, as well as the flash technology. It doesn't currently use it.""We need higher performance and more reliable storage."

Pricing and Cost Advice
