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.

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.

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 configuration and expansion aspects of the solution need improvement. They're complicated and don't really integrate well.
