Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It generates very detailed reports, which makes things easier when it comes to IT auditing.""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."

"The reporting is very good compared to other tools.""The most valuable feature involves VMware Instant Recovery, which allows one to do restoration within seconds.""The solution uses minimal resources.""It has been our go-to product for backup.""We find the pricing is reasonable.""The policy-based backup feature is very helpful.""It is very capable of scaling and very good for heterogeneous environments.""The initial setup gets easier the more you do it."

Cons
"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.""They should empower their customers with the ability to upgrade this solution as long as it's in the same major release.""It's a bit difficult for first-time users."

"The reporting feature can be improved.""The monitoring could be a bit better.""The solution could improve by providing more integration and security.""I would like to see support for databases such as MySQL and MongoDB.""In terms of implementing the solution, it's quite technical. You need to be knowledgable in order to pull off a successful deployment.""The price needs to be improved because it is really expensive.""Feature-wise, it is quite good, but it is very costly. Its price has gone up quite significantly over the years, and that makes people like us look at alternatives.""The upgrade process of the solution needs to be improved since it is extremely complicated, especially without the benefit of a support person who can guide one through it."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It's not very expensive — I think the price is fair."
  • "You have to procure the license when you are ordering or quoting for Dell Data Protection Suite (DPS). DPS is bundled with the suite and comes with a license. However, if you purchase NetWorker separately then you will have to procure the license for DPS separately."
