What is most valuable?

The protocols are very good. Clients use them a lot as backup extensions due to the reports on the backup, the capacity managing, and the success rates, etc. Personally, I find it's more than an extension of the backup solution. It's more… more»

What needs improvement?

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… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We didn't previously use a different solution. There was only a bit of SQL script and that was it.

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… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable aspects of the solution are the compression and the deduplication. It has all the technology we require in a backup solution.

What needs improvement?

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's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Before choosing EMC we did compare the price with other solutions. We found the pricing to be pretty good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used Asper from Computer Associates. The solution was too old and for the amount of our data, we needed a solution that was faster but also very strong and easy to use. That's is why we switched to EMC.

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.
