Great support from EMC team

The EMC team has been great to work with. They bring deep expertise and allow us to better support our systems.

DDBoost makes it worth every penny

Avamar has been a great tool for our backup management. The efficiencies we have seen on the storage side have been noticable. We originally used a 3rd party to install and did not have a good experience but EMC swooped in and saved the day taking over the installation and getting our sytem up and running. The DDBoost for SQL has a bit of a learning curve for the DB team but it has proven to be a much more secure and reliable method than previous scripts. It has automated the database backups for SQL and Oracle.

Great product, improved business tasks.

We looked at this product for backup / restoring SharePoint Sites. This product makes the process of restoring users data simple, by being able to look inside the structure and pull out what is needed, instead of the traditional method of restoring a content database.

Extremely Reliable

Dell (EMC) provided a excellent backup and recovery product.

Data Protection Suite Enterprise Edition, EMC Avamar, EMC NetWorker

Implementation went smooth, however different for other sites.

The Vendor has been able to help implement Avamar in four of our data centers. They were able to stand up two physical appliances and helped up with email questions on the virtual editions. The re-skill and expertise have been good. However, the installs have varied between sites. Which makes it difficult to manage a small team of two.

Can backup everyting better, except...

I am very pleased with my experience with the EMC Avamar product thus far. I especially like the options for backing up specific software and operating systems (i.e. Windows, Linux, SQL, ORACLE, Exchange, Hyper-V, vmware, etc...). Scheduling backups and performing restores can be done with ease. The deduplication rates are wonderful and the overall backup speed is a plus. NOTE: Our Avamar is implemented with EMC Data Domain which provides the great dedup and backup speeds with DDBoost. The VMWare integration works seamless however, the integration with Microsoft Hyper-V not so much. We have had issue backing up our Hyper-V VMs using the Avamar Hyper-VSS plugin. Constant backup failures, writer issues, and backups taking extremely long to complete it large cluster enviroments.

EMC NetWorker

Dell/EMC Networker is a great tool for backup/restore in the Enterprise!

We currently have an older 8.x version of Networker and are in the middle of upgrading everything to 9.x after evaluating a few other backup solutions/vendors. Dell/EMC Networker came out ahead of all the other competitors.

EMC Avamar

Performs consistent backups

Endpoint backup does what we need it to do.

Reliabe and Efficient solution for physical and NDMP backup loads.

Avamar is an excellent solution for our physical and/or file level backups, as well as NDMP. It did, however, faulter significantly when doing large scale Hyper-V backups. So much so that we had to purchase another backup solution for our virtual environment.
