Dell EMC PowerProtect DD (Data Domain) Valuable Features

General Manager responsible for IT Infrastructure and Operations at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
The reliability of Data Domain was the most useful feature to me. Every piece of data is recorded multiple times in several devices in a cluster. If any hardware failure occurs, it does not impact the data and does not result in any data loss. Resilience and reliability under any circumstances are important to data security. View full review »

The solution integrates well with our VM. I like the hardware and the software together. Based on what we have achieved in our environments on the bank's telecom, it's the best product. We have it installed with Dell EMC protection suite, NetWorker, but also with VM. There are many cases where we integrated with IBM TSM as a VTL. The best point is the duplication encryption and disaster recovery replication. The network replication's software has network verification where the product can not offer it. We use nothing for Data Domain replication. And when we use NetWorker, we use prone console application. With VM, also we use replication under the Data Domain application instead of copying the data from the VM. The solution is very scalable. The product offers excellent security. View full review »

The deduplication on the solution is great. It's elaborate but the companies already understand it. The hardware can operate in high temperatures, in case of any disaster. The scalability of the equipment and components of Data Domain are outstanding. We never go without Data Domain if we are talking about backup solutions. We always go with Data Domain. It's a very reliable and consistent product. There's no match with any other product. It's outstanding. The performance of the hardware is improving day by day and new models are coming with more scalability. View full review »

Pre-Sales and Technical Manager at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
The feature that I find the most useful is its data duplication. We had been having problems doing backups for the file server because we did not have enough space to store our backups. Data Domain solved that problem for us. View full review »

The feature that is most valuable is the Data Domain Boost. With the DD Boost, it takes minimal time to clone very large data over WAN to the DR site with a very reasonable bandwidth. Over 1.5 TB of data is cloned every day. The cloning process is seamless. View full review »

Lead Infrastructure Architect at ThinkON
I would rate it at 5/5 as the deduplication and compression of the device for backups is outstanding. We have about 55TB total space on the Data Domain which we send Veeam backups to and we have sent over 200TB to the array. The Deduplication and Compression are the most valuable as it allows us to back up allot more data to the device knowing it will compress it well. View full review »
