Feature-rich with a wide spectrum of additional plugins, but it's complex in nature and not easy to deploy

What is our primary use case?

We are service providers and provide NetWorker for our end-users, our customers. For POC purposes, we use it on our premises. Also, to have an overview of each and every kind of NetWorker. We have a number of projects that we supply Networker for and we are completely satisfied with it. We use NetWorker to serve both workload types; a physical workload, and a virtual workload.

Pros and Cons

  • "When you reach out to your maximum license availability, or you exceed your license limit, NetWorker never stops doing your backups."
  • "It's complex in nature."

What other advice do I have?

NetWorker is a good product. There is no challenge in having NetWorker in your environment. Powerprotect Data manager is the next generation backup software. I would recommend using the latest backup software suite. NetWorker is also a very good backup software, for physical or virtual workloads. People know the features that NetWorker is providing. If I had to choose one, I would go with Powerprotect. It provides simplicity and ease of use. It is not complex. Second I would recommend Avamar, then it would be Networker. I would rate Dell EMC NetWorker a seven out of ten.

An easy-to-manage solution that offers fast recovery and good stability

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for disaster recovery purposes. We replicate from one site to another from our environment.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is very user-friendly and has an easy to use interface. We can manage it easily. It allows for a simple backup."
  • "In terms of the physical environment, I'd like them to integrate it with other kinds of solutions. We don't just work with Microsoft or Linux, but other kinds of infrastructure data as well."

What other advice do I have?

We are using the on-premises deployment model. I would advise others to go ahead and implement it. This is a good solution for disaster recovery. It's easy to implement and easy to operate. Veeam is a good solution for the second phase of a disaster which is basically recovering all of the environment. It's also very fast. I would rate the solution nine out of ten.

It has a good user interface and is helpful in reducing the downtime

What is our primary use case?

I have created a virtual machine that I use as a testbed to validate the Azure backup and restore functionality.

Pros and Cons

  • "The feature that I have found the most valuable is that it is easy to create a backup by using Azure Backup. It also has a good user interface and nice features for sending notifications when any backup fails or there is a change in the status of virtual machines."
  • "I once tried restoring a Linux environment, and the size of the Linux VM or the data disk was really huge. It took a really long time to restore the environment and send the data from the storage to the disk. It took around 25 to 30 minutes, which was much longer than I anticipated. They can improve the duration of such restore operations. In the next release, it would also be good if they could reduce the duration for transferring the data from their storage to the actual storage while creating a virtual machine. They can reduce the duration or increase the data transfer rate."

What other advice do I have?

It is really a valuable product. Most of the organizations nowadays, especially in North America, prefer Microsoft products over the Linux environment. There are, however, some people who use the Linux environment as well. Overall, I would rate Azure Backup an eight out of ten. It meets the day-to-day requirements of most of the IT people, and it can be automated.
