"The solution is easy to use and has high performance."
"The source site replication feature is valuable."
"We are talking about a complete end-to-end solution which comes with its own hardware storage to back up the data on tape-less."
"The deduplication feature is the best aspect of the solution."
"Graphically, it's very user interactive. It's got a very nice interface."
"The initial setup is easy."
"The most valuable features are scalability and integration."
"The product is very powerful and offers very good performance."
"The speed and the ease of the initial setup are both good. It is not complex."
"One of the features I find most valuable, is the good technical support."
"It's an expensive solution."
"When we used the solution, it was still new, and so the customer service/technical support was not the best."
"The interface has room for improvement. It's not ideal right now."
"It lacks support for certain plugins, like SAP HANA, for example."
"It is very scalable, and that's its claim to fame, but that also makes it hard to make changes. Anytime there is a large piece of software, changing that piece of software is harder. You've got a larger install base, so you can't just rapidly change. We also use another product called Veeam, and it has this new feature called Continuous Data Protection, which basically lets you get very close to the way the system was in time. We have a system or two up there on which we have set 10 minutes Continuous Data Protection. So, we can roll it back to whatever it was 10 minutes ago, 20 minutes ago, or 30 minutes ago. This feature doesn't exist in Avamar Data Domain. That's the one feature I'd like to see first."
"A benefit would be support for either Azure Cool Storage or AWS Glacier."
"Its ability to back up very large objects can be improved. In terms of new features, they can include the ability to use cloud services, like S3, more natively."
"It would be better if we could integrate easily with other platforms."
"The interface and documentation need to improve."
"The product has to be more mature, like to be another six to eight months on the market. A lot of maturity needs to be incorporated."
