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.

Dell EMC Data Domain needs to have better compatibility between NetWorker and the hardware. NetWorker is not as good as the other products which are currently on the market like Backup Exec.

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

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.
