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.

People prefer Veeam because the interface is easier, and Data Protector is difficult in comparison.It's very expensive compared to Veeam and other similar solutions.The solution is not intuitive enough. I think they should work on the user experience and the graphical interface. These can be a lot better.The technical support was very slow.The technical support is poor and should be improved.They should design the solution so that it is much easier for deployment and make the UI easy to use.The new backup systems are using new mechanisms for the recovery phases; for example, VM, recovery and testing the backup before recovering it. These features are not available in Data Protector.

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.It is expensive, but the performance and deduplication cover for the cost.

The licensing cost was not annual. We didn't pay any license. We paid when we deployed and we didn't pay for anything after that. There were no additional fees after the initial payment.In Data Protector, if you need extra features, you need to buy the agents for these features. Some of the features are Terabytes, some of them are agents. There's some complexity in the pricing and licensing.
