Pros
"It's easy to use.""Dell EMC NetWorker integrates well with our domain and the performance is quite good on-premise. We receive approximately 1 terabyte within one hour.""This solution is very stable.""The solution offers compatibility with many types of database systems. It is one of the largest backup solutions. Additionally, it gives important information about data domain systems with deduplication.""The backup capabilities and the automatization of the backup - along with the potential to make the back up on a virtual machine - are the solution's most valuable aspects.""It can support many different versions, both newer and older.""When you reach out to your maximum license availability, or you exceed your license limit, NetWorker never stops doing your backups.""Storage-wise, EMC is user-friendly."

Cons
"There should be more vendors incorporated into the solution.""The price could be cheaper.""In the next release, I would like to see better pricing and more integration with the other products in Dell EMC.""Lacks a restore feature.""There should be total integration of the replication and cloud logistic back up on cloud.""Support is definitely an area of concern because of the time it takes to resolve our issues.""Its console UI should be better. It should also have more out-of-the-box reporting functionalities. It should also have easier cloud integration. They have got cloud boost and things like that, but if you want to directly back up to the cloud, I'm not too sure whether you can do it. For example, you can easily send data from Commvault to AWS, Azure, or a container, but it seems to be not so easy in NetWorker.""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."

"There is always room for improvement. The compression ratio should be improved as well as the efficiency.""As a new product, there are some things that still need to improve a bit as it matures.""The Dell EMC PowerProtect Data Manager reports could improve. There should be different kinds of reports on failures, such as dashboards that we can submit to top management or auditors."
