What is most valuable?

Currently, the best feature is the DR replication for us. So, whatever data we are taking in the backup, it will get replicated end of day to our DR site.

How has it helped my organization?

What needs improvement?

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The low cost is important.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

What other advice do I have?

Dell EMC Networker is really the best in the market! After evaluating the solutions, we automatically decided to use this solution.

The most valuable feature is the backing up of our network servers.

How has it helped my organization?

Most companies are now implementing network servers, and we have done the same. This solution works well and has good integration with technologies such as VMware and Hyper-V.

What needs improvement?

This solution does not support image-level backup of a physical server. The backup and restore process should be faster.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I use multiple solutions for backup and recovery. I currently work with Commvault and Veeam. In the past, I have used also used CloudFare and Acronis.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is implementing this product is to read the admin guide. It is important to look at the prerequisites, such as the operating system version. Find out whether you satisfy the… more»
