We are currently working with an on-premises deployment but we want to use the hybrid option now. We are looking forward to seeing how it performs. To this point, from what we have been using, we have found this product to be okay and we haven't had any major issues. We are happy with the features that we have. Overall, we are happy with this product. At the same time, I cannot give it a perfect rating until I see how well it scales in the cloud. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

We're just Microsoft customers. We don't have a business relationship with the company. I believe that I am using the latest version of the solution. We got into later versions as we didn't use the beta version. I wouldn't recommend this solution to others right now. It's not user-friendly enough. That level of annoyance with the product can really kill it. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. They used to give away this product and they stopped doing that. It would be nice if they returned to having it as a free solution. It would also be nice if they took some time to reconsider its design in order to make it more user-friendly in the future.

I recommend Microsoft DPM as it is a cost-effective solution that works. It's worth checking the limitations of DPM before deployment, which can be done by reading the documentation. Make sure it's suitable for your needs and that it's going to work for you. I would rate this solution a seven out of 10.

We're a government agency, so we don't have a business partnership with Microsoft. I would suggest that Microsoft try to figure out how to foster an online user community outside of their official channels. This has been a source of frustration for me. New users should know, before implementing the solution, that this community doesn't exist right now, so there's no way to third-party verify Microsoft claims. I would rate the solution five out of ten. I would say it's not an industry leader. It might work for some people and it might be the most cost-effective option for some people, however, I don't know if everyone needs cloud backups. If a company needs a turn-key system or something close to turn-key system, it's not that.

Because of our budget constraints, we had some issues and wanted to go ahead with this DPM because it is a Microsoft product. We were told that this particular software is known and in operation worldwide, and when it comes to backups in existence it's listed in the October 2019 report. My advice would be not to install DPM because of the support services. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

We use the on-premises deployment model. Overall, I really like the product. There's not really any feature that is missing. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. it's very user-friendly, and I can do everything I need to do. It's very simple for me to use.
