This solution has improved our organization through better file and database recovery.The fact that we can take the backup straight onto tape is the most valuable feature.The most valuable features are compression and de-duplication.The best part of this solution is that it just works.The product is very stable.It is a very mature product.We optimize our costs of media and storage use, thanks to the Incremental Forever backup. The TDP software provides us many ways to protect our data, so we don't need to use monstrous scripts for doing backups now.I love the TDP for VMware because of the web interface and the possibilities provided by this tool. It's amazing.

Cons
Delphix is a strong solution for virtualization, but it's not strong enough for creating data, so we have to use another solution for creating new data.My only complaint about this solution is the price.

The deduplication must be perfect, and thus should be improved.We cannot take VMware backups for our banking data center environment.In the next version of the solution, I would like to see cloud support.The user interface needs to be improved.Sometimes we experience trouble with the backup transfer of the control files.This solution does not have good support for virtualization and a hyper-converged environment.The Hyper-V and SQL Server backup could be improved. In the 2016 version there was a significant improvement, but I think IBM has a big challenge with these technologies.A lot of my customers always ask for legal holds, especially on email.

The licensing fees are on a yearly basis, which for us it is about R400,000 (approximately $27,000 USD).The pricing is a little expensive for our current employer, so they want to move to a cheaper solution.The pricing of the solution is high in comparison to other products on the market. For example, IBM and Symantec have less costly options.The product is low cost. It is very cool when we design it to using licensing based on post capacity.There may be an advantage to going with IBM in terms of pricing. They have a pay-as-you-grow policy, so there is no need to take one license for the entire datacenter. You can start with small licenses and then grow, and pay, as you use more.The different license models can give good benefits to the end customer.Regarding retro-compatibility of the product between versions, your data is always available and the ROI is unquestionable.The licensing is varied. If we have small environments (not many TB being managed) it is best to license by PVUs (depending on the number of cores of the machine). If we manage many TBs we look at licensing by capacity which allows us to use all the agents of the product.
