How has it helped my organization?

Backup admins don’t need to dedicate so much time to installation and configuration of backups.

What needs improvement?

What do you think of EMC NetWorker?

Valuable Features: Provides backup automation and monitoring centralization. Having easy scalability of the covered data zone is also a big advantage. • Improvements to My Organization: All environment backups are monitored by a central management console.

What do you think of EMC NetWorker?

Valuable Features It is application aware for Meditech, Exchange and SQL. We do not want to check for successful backup in multiple locations.
