The price is acceptable, it was definitely within our means. The license is a perpetual license. Ours is a 5 TB license and, as long as my data stays within that limit for disk—they actually triple the amount you can put into the cloud—that license is going to keep me going indefinitely. I will probably purchase maintenance at some point, after a year or two, to get the upgrades to the software. The initial license came with three years of maintenance so we're still within that window and haven't had to buy additional maintenance yet. We had to make sure, on the storage side of the house, that we had enough disk space to allow for that short-term storage. Because we came from tape, we hadn't needed that so much, but going to more of a disk- and cloud-based backup, we had to buy up half a dozen disk drives to help build out the storage environment. If you have a lot of data and you're going to go disk to cloud, then you have to have the disk space in your environment or in your cloud environment.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
I'm planning to renew my Data Domain solution and I want to compare it with other products.
I use it for secondary storage of my backup and also for file sharing (SMB, CIFS).
What alternative products would you recommend?
