Featured Review
Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"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.""This is a stable solution.""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.""It generates very detailed reports, which makes things easier when it comes to IT auditing."

"When we talk about a backup point of view, from a backup perspective, it's a good one.""It's not easy to scale it.""When I have had to use tech support, they've been very good.""I really like the reporting options you get for various email reports.""I like the fact that you can recover the VMs inside the appliance. For example, they're basically running this appliance on a Linux-based distribution, and they're spinning off KVM virtual machines inside."

Cons
"It is difficult to manage the solution with the available tools. You need to know exactly what are you are doing.""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.""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.""They should empower their customers with the ability to upgrade this solution as long as it's in the same major release.""It's a bit difficult for first-time users."

More Dell Data Protection Advisor Cons →

"Probably the biggest issue I've had is actually paying for the unit, and part of that problem is that they use a third party for the billing.""Comparing the features and the working pattern, definitely they have to come down on pricing if they want to compete in the market.""It seems like Unitrends moved away from enterprise customer engagement and moved more towards the managed service provider market.""I would like to see more storage options for the free version.""There's a lot that can be made better. For example, it could be more scalable."

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."
