"Storage-wise, EMC is user-friendly."
"Dell EMC NetWorker integrates well with our domain and the performance is quite good on-premise. We receive approximately 1 terabyte within one hour."
"The backup capabilities and the automatization of the backup - along with the potential to make the back up on a virtual machine - are the solution's most valuable aspects."
"There are no problems in terms of stability."
"The most valuable feature is NetWorker's integration with the data domain that transfers the data directly into the Dell appliance, so the data doesn't need to pass through the network. NetWorker acts like a pipe, allowing the data to flow directly from the database or the VMware environment to the data domain."
"Dell EMC NetWorker is scalable."
"The solution has a longer lifespan."
"It's easy to use."
"The API is very good."
"The solution offers a very straightforward deployment. You click, click, click and it's done. There's not much configuration to do."
"We used to use the solution with tapes a few years ago. We've switched to discs, and it has gotten much faster."
"The most valuable feature is the ease of use."
"Virtual snapshots that offer incremental backups."
"The user interface has to be improved"
"It's complex in nature."
"Lacks a restore feature."
"The initial setup is complex."
"I would like to see the user interface improved, more documentation, faster support, and it could be easier to configure."
"They need to be compatible with the cloud because EMC NetWorker cannot compete with other products at the moment. EMC focuses only on their own cloud and do not take into consideration other cloud vendors."
"Reporting templates could be easier to understand and more comprehensive."
"They need more support for image backups."
"Their first level of support can be improved. Often they are too junior to understand the issues we are having, and it takes too much time to get from them to the next level of support, which is what we actually need."
"There could be better integration with Spectrum Protect and Spectrum Protect Plus, it should be one solution."
"The replication feature is not available."
"Not particularly user friendly."
"You end up needing to do a lot of troubleshooting to get things to work effectively."
