Pros
"Good starting capacity and scalability.""The most valuable features of this product are its guaranteed reliability and its duplication capability.""The stability is excellent.""The hardware can operate in high temperatures, in case of any disaster.""The features that I have found most valuable with Dell EMC PowerProtect DD are its deduplication feature and its DD Boost protocol for fast transfer, which is amazing.""I find the data to be most valuable.""It is very fast as compared to the other competitors. Its simplicity and bit rate are also valuable. It takes less time if we compare it with the old solution that we have.""The most valuable feature is the inline data deduplication."

"The product is stable and reliable.""We are quite satisfied with the performance and reliability of the NetBackup product. When it comes to specific features, the most valuable is the Instant Recovery feature, which we call "short-term IR". Instant Recovery allows users to spin up backup images and bring back any VM instantly.""The solution offers a lot of really great features that organizations can utilize and take advantage of.""The solution offers very good storage efficiency, so there's excellent compression and deduplication within the product that our clients really appreciate.""This product is flexible enough to allow for backing up data from physical machines, as well as from your cloud environment.""It has been around for so long, and it is very in-depth. It has a solution for everything that you can cover.""I have found the Media Server Deduplication tool, deployment policies, and agentless features to be the most valuable features.""Includes snapshots and multiple database agents."

Cons
"They need to make migration easier.""I would like to see better integration and support for backing up to cloud providers such as Alibaba Cloud.""First-time integrations are difficult in NetWorker. NetWorker software needs to be simplified. It's very complex.""Its management can be improved.""The price could be improved.""They still have hardware different from the software.""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.""It can probably have integration with other OEMs. It should also have more features for ransomware protection."

"The database integration could be better.""The pricing is a bit of a concern. If could be lower.""Within their product lineup, they need to consolidate down to one product. Veritas doesn't have one product that does everything. So, Veritas can do everything, but you basically need to run two products. I would like them to combine all the capabilities into one release.""The only pain point we have with this solution is the cost. It's very expensive. In fact, it's so expensive we are looking for other platforms. We want to move away from it in order to save our organization costs.""In regards to protecting the physical servers with parameters, it's a long and difficult process.""I also think they could improve the reporting. They use a web-based software application OpsCenter for the reporting and I see that they haven't made any changes in years.""I do not really like NetBackup as it is coming from a mix of other software packages.""In the next release, I would like to have a better way to protect against ransomware attacks and a better way of logging issues where you don't have to enable the verbose logging to capture the problems."
