The most reliable and easiest enterprise backup solution I have used in 25 years

We use Avamar as a 'front-end' to back up our entire enterprise of over 10 petabytes. Avamar is the 'brains' to manage the backups, and it sends the backups to Dell EMC Data Domain for storage. Backups work reliably, recovery is very fast, and there are a wide range of plugins to meet your needs (image-based VM backups, Oracle & MSSQL database plugins, support for many operating systems, vCenter plugins, etc). Dell EMC support is the best, also.

Pros

Avamar is intuitive and easy to use compared to other backup solutions I have used, and the Dell EMC support and account team are second to none.

Cons

Because Avamar supports protecting such a large range of products, there can be a lot of features and plugins to learn. That is not the fault of Avamar; it's just a robust product with a lot of options. Overall, though, it is intuitive and not difficult.

Reasons for Switching to Dell EMC Avamar

IBM stuck it to us in an audit and wouldn't bend on pricing, and we already had a good relationship with EMC.

Avamar solution is a complete solution for disk only

My overall experience is good in general of use, in backup and recovery scenarios the solution covers very good our necesities of a complete solution for backup and restore.

Pros

The integration for virtual environments is great, the compresion and deduplication helps you to save a lot space (its require a good assesment before), the possibility to backup end users microsfot and mac is an add-on of the solution.

Cons

This is only a disk solution not compatible with LTO Tapes, the integration with public clouds providers helps in this case.

Reasons for Choosing Dell EMC Avamar

Actual DELL EMC Avamar is the only solution that has integration with Data Domain and Networker, no other company provides this integration.
