Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"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 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 has a lot of very good features. The virtual tape library (VTL) feature is most valuable. Overall, it is easy to use.""NetBackup is based on really good architectural hardware, and Veritas has the best backup and replication technology in the world.""It’s quite scalable.""The documentation is okay. You are able to follow it and it is helpful.""The policy-based backup feature is very helpful.""We find the pricing is reasonable.""The most valuable feature of the Veritas NetBackup Appliance is the virtual machine backups.""It is easy to use and the performance is good."

Cons
"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.""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."

More Dell Data Protection Advisor Cons →

"They could improve the interface a bit.""The price needs to be improved because it is really expensive.""The upgrade process of the solution needs to be improved since it is extremely complicated, especially without the benefit of a support person who can guide one through it.""The configuration can sometimes be tricky during implementation.""Feature-wise, it is quite good, but it is very costly. Its price has gone up quite significantly over the years, and that makes people like us look at alternatives.""It's hard to get to the backups. There are too many tabs.""NetBackup Appliance's pricing is reasonable, but it could be lower.""The monitoring could be a bit better."

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."
