It has been stable.""The most valuable features are the deduplication and compression and the Data Domain Boost.""It's very easy to use the domain once it's been set up.

"The whole replication aspect of the solution is excellent because it compresses the data so well.""The user interface is good and it is very easy to use.""Before Veeam, we had backup infrastructure sprawl. Veeam was able to reduce our overall backup windows while reducing our dedicated backup infrastructure.""Vendor integration for many of the enterprise features have allowed for us to have greater performance from our storage vendors further improving on our commitments to protect our clients' data.""The most valuable feature is the ability to verify that backups are valid.""Features with the most value are Instant VM Recovery, SQL Explorer and Exchange Explorer.""The most valuable feature is adaptability, where it automatically adapts to the environment that it's being installed on.""The product is very simple in its design. We don't need it to perform complicated tasks."

Cons
"The pricing should be adjusted. Customers continuously talk about the price. They know it is a good solution and they really need the type of storage the solution offers, but it costs somewhere around $100,000 and up. It's not cheap, but it's very important for data vendors.""The pricing model needs to be improved.""EMC is very expensive for small customers.""We are not able to deal directly with the OEM we have to go to their partners in Nigeria.""We have had deduplication and replication issues. When we used another backup software we noticed that it didn't have the same issues.""The firmware upgrades could be simplified. I'm in the process of struggling to upgrade right now.""The pricing could be better, but it's still not too expensive.""The licensing model was the biggest concern for our company, but the poor support after the initial implementation is of equal concern."

More Dell EMC PowerProtect DD (Data Domain) Cons »

"It would be ideal if users could know that their data is backed up and have some security functionality where you can actually use the backup to spin up a new cluster and take it from there.""I would like to have the capability of backing up a physical machine, as opposed to just a VM.""Multithreading of health check process: This can take too much time to process on large jobs and/or large VMs.""Additional executive summary reports for the entire infrastructure would be a nice to have.""One challenge that we have encountered was on the long-term retention of data. Be sure to look into a dedicated deduplication appliance.""We would like to see support for some additional storage systems.""Physical backup is always where room for improvement could be but Veeam has always stated they are not going in that direction.""They need full cloud integration such that an on-premises backup can be offloaded to the cloud for storage."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""In Naira it was twenty-five or twenty-seven million (approximately $75,000 USD) for the implementation and maintenance cost for three years.""There are many options in the pricing structure which can cause some confusion and necessitate the purchase of additional licensing.""This is one of the more expensive backup solutions on the market.""Its price is reasonable."

"The price of Veeam is much lower than the IBM solution.""We have increased our scalability while being able to free up senior resources from recovery activities. I estimate our overall savings to about $20,000 per year.""Veeam is more reasonably priced than some competing products.""My understanding is that it is a fairly small price point.""Its software solution has a fee.""It is more expensive than other solutions.""If you tell Veeam that you're competing with, for example, NetBackup or Backup Exec, or Dell or Micro Focus then they may lower the price. They are very competitive.""I don't know what the costs are for sure, but I think that it's on a yearly basis."
