"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."
"It generates very detailed reports, which makes things easier when it comes to IT auditing."
"It can support many different versions, both newer and older."
"Deduplication is the most valuable feature of this solution."
"The solution has a longer lifespan."
"The support for legacy products is very good."
"It's a good product that can be integrated easily with the Data domain."
"The solution offers compatibility with many types of database systems. It is one of the largest backup solutions. Additionally, it gives important information about data domain systems with deduplication."
"The updated graphical interface is better than it used to be."
"It is the best umbrella, serving the best applications."
"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."
"It's a bit difficult for first-time users."
"They should empower their customers with the ability to upgrade this solution as long as it's in the same major release."
"I would like to see encryption included in the next release to encrypt the data that we are backing up."
"I would like to see better support for the container systems, and we would like to see more support for image backups instead of pure file backups."
"It is a little buggy at times, which is the only thing that I dislike about this product."
"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."
"In the next release, I would like to see better pricing and more integration with the other products in Dell EMC."
"They need more support for image backups."
"It would be beneficial to have a single user interface for all of the features."
