More Dell EMC PowerProtect DD (Data Domain) Pros »

"It has an intuitive interface, and it provides us with successful backups without needing to tweak or do any adjusting. We just set it up and like their ad says, "It Just Works."""I have been in contact with technical support and they are very good.""It's a pretty complete product.""It's fairly easy to manage and set up.""The documentation is very good. It's also easy to install Veeam Backup and Replication.""Vendor integration for many of the enterprise features have allowed for us to have greater performance from our storage vendors further improving on our commitments to protect our clients' data.""For virtualization it's perfect.""It is a flexible, simple, and scalable software-based solution. It has agentless functionality with specific hypervisors and agent-based functionality with specific operating systems. It gives you the flexibility to use your own hardware and back up physical Windows, Linux, IBM AIX, and Oracle Solaris systems as well as VMware VMs, Hyper-V VMs, and Nutanix VMs from one console. It also has integration with major applications that most companies are using, such as Active Directory, SQL, Exchange, or SharePoint. It has integrations, not just for the backup on the image, host layer, or hypervisor, but also for performing an application-consistent backup. It is helpful in backing up to the tape, cloud, DR site, etc. It is really flexible. It is really amazing that you can restore any backup on VMware, Azure, or AWS. As compared to the other solutions in the market. Veeam has really integrated a lot in the past years. It has the best performance and perfect replication."

Cons
"The size and scale of the product are limited and could be improved.""I would like to see better integration and support for backing up to cloud providers such as Alibaba Cloud.""It can probably have integration with other OEMs. It should also have more features for ransomware protection.""The price could be improved.""First-time integrations are difficult in NetWorker. NetWorker software needs to be simplified. It's very complex.""I would like to see integration with public cloud.""When you use Data Domain, you have to have at least 20% free space so it can work properly. Sometimes we struggle with that, because we wanted to use all the free space, but then Data Domain becomes really slow. I understand that 20% is needed to process all the data, and doing the duplication and compression and all that, but it would be a big improvement if they did not require that 20%, because it is just too much to have available.""They need to make migration easier."

More Dell EMC PowerProtect DD (Data Domain) Cons »

"The price is an issue. If one has a large number of servers, say... 100-plus, and wishes to add more, an exhausted budget may hinder this ability.""Although the solution offers documentation, it has it only in English, which doesn't help us much in Belarus.""Device backup could be improved.""They need a better solution for backend storage.""Even though the speed has improved over the years, I think that there are some instances where it still takes a while.""It would be ideal if they could capture everything and then timestamp and back up everything up to that timestamp.""Veeam is good up until 300 VMs.""think backing up from physical servers and ransomware security needs some improvements."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The price is on the high side.""Its price is reasonable.""It could be more competitively priced. Its licensing was for five years. Obviously, the support will get renewed at some stage, but that's it."

More Dell EMC PowerProtect DD (Data Domain) Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Its software solution has a fee.""There is a license required for this solution and the price is a bit expensive but it depends on the environment that you have on how much it will cost.""We have increased our scalability while being able to free up senior resources from recovery activities. I estimate our overall savings to about $20,000 per year.""It is approximately $4,000 to $5,000 for the purchase of the product and I paid an additional $2,000 for the renewal.""My understanding is that it is a fairly small price point.""It's expensive and costs about 4000 a year.""When I did a tech refresh, we took out a subscription for the coming five years.""I understand from management that the DR component is too expensive."
