I can't speak to any missing features. We are happy with the product. We would like to see the pricing drop a bit.

After resizing and compression, the system continuously runs out of space. Dell EMC doesn't do automatic cleanup or other things, so we constantly have to manually go in there or work with Dell support on this. The solution has not been working as advertised.

The biggest issue is with the SSO, which is missing. With other products, you login into a single user and have access to everything. DPC is not integrated. You can log into it but you have to log into Avamar and Data Domain separately. It's not really a single sign-on to the entire environment in one shot. I would like to see it fully integrated. They need to bring in the SSO so that you can log in once to the IDPA and should be able to access everything through a single user. You shouldn't have to re-authenticate to each of its components. This is a problem. They have multiple logins. They could have made it easier by using SSO. Another area that is missing is the two-factor authentication. The two-factor authentication is missing from Dell products. They don't have the ability to integrate with Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, or Okta. There is no way of doing two-factor authentication. They need SSO with role-based access. You will have role-based access control to log in, then you should be able to define that login. You can define what access levels it has to the various components. For example, I log in with one user, I should be able to say only have one backup operator, access to Avamar or Data Domain. I can have admin access, search, or have admin, your advisor, the DPA, or I can have normal monitoring of user access. I should be able to define that in a central location.

In general, there is no perfect solution and there is always room for improvement. The price could be lowered slightly, to make it more competitive.

We are system integrators and this is one of the solutions that we provide to our clients. This appliance allows you to expand into the cloud with a provider like AWS or Azure. It can provide the capability for a third-level backup.

We use this solution to replace existing backups for Avamar and Data Domain that have been integrated and set up earlier. The primary use case is backup and restoration.
