EMC Avamar

Implementation was easy and day-to-day not very complex

Very happy with both the technical and non-technical resources

EMC Avamar

Foundational core for our DR planning

The Dell/EMC team has provided strong support. They are available as needed. Extremely knowledgeable about every concern we have addressed. Plenty of best practice advice.

EMC Avamar

Would be good for a simple environment, not so good for complex ones.

Costs were high, in retrospect this isn't a good solution if you have to span domains and make multiple hops from one site to another.

No Need for Tapes, Avamar Assures Reliable Backups

Excellent professional services and product support. Avamar backup server is fast, manageable and felxible. Backups, system, support are extremely reliable.

EMC Avamar

Straightforward implementation of backup and storage solution.

Product is a great improvement over TSM software environment. Data Blue is a competant partner. Documentation could be better. Tied perhaps too tightly to the Data Domain.

EMC NetWorker

Implementation was easy and when it runs stable it's a strong data backup work horse

Networker was evolved slowly as a backup solution. We liked that it was Linux based and easy to manage command line. And it fulfilled our need for heavy tape backups. But the newer versions have limited the tape library support and we struggle with a few of the same issues.

Look at your long term costs

Purchased and implementation went well, but subsequent storage purchase was exceptionally expensive. Now that I am needing another capacity increase and have seen the cost, I will be looking at alternative solutions as well. The cost is prohibitive.

Data Protection Suite Enterprise Edition

Easy to support and implement

Very good, EMC/DELL has great customer support.

EMC Avamar

Implementation was bumpy, but ongoing backup management was drastically improved.

Product works well and deliveres impressive deduplication of backup data. Initial configuration was problematic. Once the initial wrinkles were ironed out, the solution has been robust and reliable.

Data Protection Suite Enterprise Edition

Excellent product

Excellent product. We have implemented supporting systems that have been reliable and would not have been possible with any other product. The reduncancy and performance has been exceptional. The vendor has been a part of our implementation from the ground floor. They have been invaluable. This technology has been integrated into our application and has facilitated expansion.
