The backup is very secure. The deduplication using EMC is very good. We are able to make systems and handle random cloning. EMC is a very stable solution for making backups.

First-time integrations are difficult in NetWorker. NetWorker software needs to be simplified. It's very complex.

The licensing model was the biggest concern for our company, but the poor support after the initial implementation is of equal concern.

When you use Data Domain, you have to have at least 20% free space so it can work properly. Sometimes we struggle with that, because we wanted to use all the free space, but then Data Domain becomes really slow. I understand that 20% is needed to process all the data, and doing the duplication and compression and all that, but it would be a big improvement if they did not require that 20%, because it is just too much to have available.

We are not able to deal directly with the OEM we have to go to their partners in Nigeria.

The pricing should be adjusted. Customers continuously talk about the price. They know it is a good solution and they really need the type of storage the solution offers, but it costs somewhere around $100,000 and up. It's not cheap, but it's very important for data vendors.

They should reduce the CPC cost to customers. The product is becoming very expensive.

We have had deduplication and replication issues. When we used another backup software we noticed that it didn't have the same issues.
