Data Domain is valuable, especially to restore data. For normal data, the restore from Data Domain is very efficient and fast.

Data Domain Boost has a unique protocol. I don't think with other vendors you get the same efficiency. I work with some the other products, but this solution has amazing efficiency in comparison.

The functionality is very good. DD Boost and DD entry replication are used in almost all backup concepts. Those are the most used features.

Technical support is okay but could be improved. I've sent a lot of complaints their way and I feel like they might be able to respond a bit better.

There are some limitations where you cannot use it as a shared server or as a file server, it is limited for the only backup.

It would be nice if they could have the same tool set right from the smallest to the biggest modules, but being specific frame dependent.

The experience of restoring VMware or Veeam Backup is difficult, when the backup you are using is a solution for backup, which is already having a deduplication. When you try to restore from Data Domain, it doesn't work perfectly, because Data Domain is already having a deduplication as well.

This product is expensive compared to other storage so the price can be improved.

The solution needs a better gateway between the on-premises and cloud deployment models. We have to work around it or find a third party to assist.

The multi-tier functionality can be improved, but it is quite good. They could improve replication and perhaps support additional sharing network protocols. I would also like to see better implementation of NFS Version 3, but it is already implemented and quite usable as it is.
