If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Dell EMC Data Protection Advisor, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
Know your client and understand their policies. Licensing is a big one, which a lot of people get messed over. overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of nine.
We're a gold partner with Dell EMC. The clients that we have on the solution are medium to enterprise-level organizations. I'd advise others to see if there's a data center solution and not just an extension of the backup. You also need to edit the data to show what you want and you'll want to set up and get the reports that apply to your specific needs. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. I really like it, but they do need to address the difficulties surrounding reporting to make it perfect.
We use the private cloud deployment model. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. I'd recommend it; it's a very strong solution.

Currently using R1Soft and have major issues. We need the software to work with OVM, Linux, Windows, Sql server, Exchange, and Sharepoint. We also need bare metal recovery functionality.
