I am currently researching the following two products: Dell Avamar and Dell NetWorker.
Which product would you choose and why? What are the pros and cons of each product?
Thank you for the help.
I have seen all of these products in production. If you are working with a VMware environment and want solid backups/replications and restores then nothing in my opinion beats Veeam. It's very easy to use and works very well with plain disk-based backup targets. Its built-in de-duplication works very well. If you are looking for even better performance and de-duplication then I would recommend Veeam with a Data Domain backup target. Data Domain uses a protocol called DD-Boost. Not many vendors support DD-Boost, however, Veeam does. I am getting very good backup-to-storage ratios with this combination. For example, I am using 15.5 TB of physical disk space to hold 106TB of backup data. I have been pleased and impressed with this combination.
Hi PeerSpot community members,
Currently, I'm researching these three Backup & Recovery products: Dell NetWorker vs Dell Avamar vs Veeam Backup & Replication. What are the main differences between them? In particular, I'm interested to understand the differences in the license models.
I appreciate your help.
