Good protocols and data center with good stability

Pros and Cons

  • "The initial setup is very straightforward. Deployment typically takes about one hour. You just need one person to handle the deployment process."
  • "Customization of reports or creating new reports can be difficult. Users need to have a deep knowledge of SQL. 70-80% of customers can't seem to understand how to do it. They don't know how to address reporting. If Dell EMC could simplify it, it would benefit the end-user."

What other advice do I have?

We're a gold partner with Dell EMC. The clients that we have on the solution are medium to enterprise-level organizations. I'd advise others to see if there's a data center solution and not just an extension of the backup. You also need to edit the data to show what you want and you'll want to set up and get the reports that apply to your specific needs. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. I really like it, but they do need to address the difficulties surrounding reporting to make it perfect.

Has good compression and deduplication features with a straightforward setup

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for backups.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable aspects of the solution are the compression and the duplication."
  • "The solution requires more integration with our other solutions. I know that they have full integration with VMware because it is also from EMC. However, we have to have better integration with Microsoft and Nutanix as well."

What other advice do I have?

We use the private cloud deployment model. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. I'd recommend it; it's a very strong solution.
