Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The most valuable feature is the performance because you can back up data really quickly.""The hardware can operate in high temperatures, in case of any disaster.""It is very fast as compared to the other competitors. Its simplicity and bit rate are also valuable. It takes less time if we compare it with the old solution that we have.""The solution is very scalable.""The feature that I have found most useful is its data duplication.""It works within backup windows and has got good deduplication."

"The solution can be used for all Office 365 applications."

More NetApp AltaVault Pros »

Cons
"I would like to see better integration and support for backing up to cloud providers such as Alibaba Cloud.""First-time integrations are difficult in NetWorker. NetWorker software needs to be simplified. It's very complex.""Its management can be improved.""The price could be improved.""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.""It can probably have integration with other OEMs. It should also have more features for ransomware protection."

More Dell EMC PowerProtect DD (Data Domain) Cons »

"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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Its price is reasonable.""It could be more competitively priced. Its licensing was for five years. Obviously, the support will get renewed at some stage, but that's it."
