We performed a comparison between DD Boost and NetApp FAS Series based on real PeerSpot user reviews.
Find out in this report how the two Deduplication Software solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"Scalable and stable solution for backup purposes, with good encryption and huge data conversion features."
"The most valuable features are the performance and the duplication."
"The initial setup is very straightforward."
"The solution is very good because it is easy to use and it speeds up the backup and lowers the requirement for the storage rate. It is capable of encryption, compression, and deduplication and it is fast for sending all of the data over the network because it sends only the change blocks from the client to the DD server."
"It's a stable solution."
"The solution is easy to use."
"I like it. When it is up and running, it does the job."
"NetApp FAS is highly stable and reliable, especially under a heavy load. That is what I like most about the NetApp."
"Can use both SAN and NAS at the same time."
"The file sharing feature is most valuable."
"Flexible and reliable storage solution with multiple features such as cloning, replication, and deduplication. Data migration can be done without any performance implications on the production systems."
"I like the unified management feature because sometimes you end up running a single protocol on the entire system."
"It's an easy product to use that is stable and has good performance."
"It would be good if the product could be useful not just for general backup. Its pricing is also expensive, and it can be a difficult application, particularly when you need to write a script for anything you would like to do."
"Integration could be better."
"The solution could improve by adding more flexibility for the customers here in Thailand. Some of the small capacity models of the solution are not needed by our customers. There should be a more flexible version of the solution."
"The solution doesn't scale. If you hit your capacity, you need to buy a new device."
"Its licensing cost can be improved."
"The user interface could be improved to have better graphics and the performance analyzer could be better."
"For long term partnership in Myanmar, the local warehouse should be built in Myanmar that's something I'd like to see. We have some issues with supply so there is sometimes a delay in getting the hardware."
"No other area for improvement comes to mind other than its price. Making the price more attractive will help this solution have a bigger market share."
"Interfacing with the cloud environment could be better. I want to be able to move some cloud volume and integrate it seamlessly with my home on-premise storage. Sometimes I have issues with port permissions. NetApp probably needs to improve more on the integration side from on-premise to the cloud."
"I think this kind of infrastructure is mostly obsolete. To keep up with developments in this space, you need to move all these features to an All-Flash solution."
"The NetApp FAS Series is not as high-performing and is not as fast. Its speed needs improvement, but this could only be done if it's an all-flash solution."
"There is no NetApp infrastructure set up here in Greece."
DD Boost software delivers an advanced level of integration with backup applications and data base utilities, enhancing performance and ease of use. Dell also provides a DD Boost File System Plug-In (BoostFS) with DD Boost for even greater application support, which enables all the benefits of DD Boost for applications that use NFS for data protection. Rather than sending all data to the system for deduplication processes, DD Boost enables the backup server or application client to send only unique data segments across the network to the system.
DD Boost is ranked 7th in Deduplication Software with 5 reviews while NetApp FAS Series is ranked 3rd in Deduplication Software with 16 reviews.
