The backup is the solution's most valuable feature. It's very reliable.We sell Avamar with Data Domain. Data Domain and Avamar work really well together and their compression ratios are very high compared to Veeam, Commvault, and all the other backup software on the market.I think the brand is very good. Support is also very nice for end users and integration with EMC products for businesses.It was very simple to deploy the solution to the client that you wanted to backup.We love the instant recovery functionality. It's very useful.The product is good for backups.We have a lot of backups, and this tool helps us with the RMAN Backup.

Cons
The product lacks some security features that would make it more stand-alone and integrated.They should reduce the CPC cost to customers. The product is becoming very expensive.The licensing model was the biggest concern for our company, but the poor support after the initial implementation is of equal concern.The pricing could be better, but it's still not too expensive.The firmware upgrades could be simplified. I'm in the process of struggling to upgrade right now.We have had deduplication and replication issues. When we used another backup software we noticed that it didn't have the same issues.We are not able to deal directly with the OEM we have to go to their partners in Nigeria.The pricing model needs to be improved.

The configuration and expansion aspects of the solution need improvement. They're complicated and don't really integrate well.I think they could also move more towards cloud solutions. It already has some cloud tiering, but I think that could be more extensive. They should work with all cloud providers and I think in the future they will be on all cloud platforms.The interface could be more helpful for people.It was challenging to back up our Exchange database, which is one of the reasons we did not continue using this solution.The licensing model is not very flexible. Every time we upgrade our storage size, we need to upgrade the Avamar license.The client caches and deduplication system have a few problems.There are limitations when trying to use this solution with Hyper-V.

Pricing and Cost Advice
This is one of the more expensive backup solutions on the market.There are many options in the pricing structure which can cause some confusion and necessitate the purchase of additional licensing.In Naira it was twenty-five or twenty-seven million (approximately $75,000 USD) for the implementation and maintenance cost for three years.Pricing is related to size. A lower range solution might be about $33,000. My customers use higher range versions with a price of around $100,000. That's the price for both the hardware and software.

The price is the main thing I'd like to see them change. If they can come down in price, that would be a good thing. It's very cost competitive in the entry level range, because Veeam pricing is much cheaper than Avamar.I'm not sure, but perhaps the pricing could be done better at the moment.This solution is less expensive than Veeam for us, although it depends on the customer because we get a great discount.
