Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The solution is easy to use, flexible and has a lot of out-of-the-box functionality. You can configure the dashboards or you can use a script. However, to fully utilize its capabilities you will want to use a lot of scripts which you will need advanced training. The reports can be customized for many things, such as chargeback billing.""This is a stable solution.""It generates very detailed reports, which makes things easier when it comes to IT auditing.""The deduplication is probably the most valuable feature of that requirement.""It has a lot of stock reports. I believe over 300 canned reports, which for the most part meet a lot of generic needs."

"The main benefit of this solution is that it automatically scans the files for ransomware after the backup is complete.""It's incredibly fast.""It is simple to implement and use. It's very flexible."

Cons
"There is a steep learning curve to use the interface and to create new reports, this could be made easier. If the solution could provide more drag and drop functionality to build more advanced reports that would be very helpful.""It's a bit difficult for first-time users.""It is difficult to manage the solution with the available tools. You need to know exactly what are you are doing.""They should empower their customers with the ability to upgrade this solution as long as it's in the same major release.""The functionality of the Data Protection Advisor is limited and is something that is lacking in this solution. Other solutions like CloudIQ and DDMC provide a much better outlook on how data protection should be done."

More Dell Data Protection Advisor Cons →

"The speed could be better.""The support of other cloud services needs to be improved. It has very good cloud support for AWS but not with others.""I would like to see security improved in the next release."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It's not very expensive — I think the price is fair."
  • "You have to procure the license when you are ordering or quoting for Dell Data Protection Suite (DPS). DPS is bundled with the suite and comes with a license. However, if you purchase NetWorker separately then you will have to procure the license for DPS separately."
  • "For pricing, I would rate Dell 2 out of 5. It's affordable."
