"The best feature of Dell EMC NetWorker is its wide spectrum of available plugins for each and every software that you can back up, such as SAP HANA, Oracle, AXI-based machines, or Dell-based machines. Whatever you want to back up, you can do it with Dell EMC NetWorker. It is a very solid backup software. It is the oldest backup software from EMC, and it comes from Dell EMC's legacy."
"It can support many different versions, both newer and older."
"The updated graphical interface is better than it used to be."
"The two-factor authentication is missing from Dell products."
"After resizing and compression, the system continuously runs out of space. Dell EMC doesn't do automatic cleanup or other things, so we constantly have to manually go in there or work with Dell support on this. The solution has not been working as advertised."
"The price could be lowered slightly, to make it more competitive."
"The process of upgrading versions should be improved because as it is now, you have to completely uninstall the old version first, and then install the new version."
"The solution could improve by having more integration."
"The data storage capabilities should be improved."
"I would like to see better support for the container systems, and we would like to see more support for image backups instead of pure file backups."

"The initial setup is complex."
"They need to be compatible with the cloud because EMC NetWorker cannot compete with other products at the moment. EMC focuses only on their own cloud and do not take into consideration other cloud vendors."
"Reporting templates could be easier to understand and more comprehensive."
