    AWS Backup

    There is a cost involved with data retrieval. AWS Backup is truly that, a backup. If you need to access this data on a regular basis, there are better options out there. For long term, just in case incremental backups, AWS [Backup] checks all the boxes. Just set it up, start your backups, and rest assured your data is safe.

    PowerProtect DD (formerly Dell EMC Data Domain)

    When used as a backup target PowerProtect DD models offer incredible density and can efficiently replicate to another cloud-based or offsite unit. Most complaints about these have been addressed in software over the years and they are now a intuitive and easily managed backup system. You are not buying a Swiss army knife, you are getting a machine designed for a purpose, use it for that and you will not be disappointed. While they have the ability to serve as a CIFS server, they are not a filer and lack many of the features inherent to filers and are a poor substitute.

    Pros

    AWS Backup

    • Backups - it's what it does.
    Matt Hoffman | TrustRadius Reviewer

    PowerProtect DD (formerly Dell EMC Data Domain)

    • It writes backups quickly. DDBoost add-on is very useful as well for improving backup speeds.
    • DD is very efficient in its use of capacity. It dedupes and compresses very well.
    • It spans to large capacity amounts.

    Cons

    AWS Backup

    • Not so easy to use
    • A little pricey
    • The backup is in the cloud; make sure to keep an offline backup (the problem of all of this kind of solution)
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    PowerProtect DD (formerly Dell EMC Data Domain)

    • It can be expensive to implement, especially when used in conjunction with other applications/hardware such as Avamar.
    • The TCO can be high, especially when it needs its storage expanded.
    • Recovery speeds can be slow (compared to other solutions) for when recovery is time sensitive.

    DD has performed flawlessly for almost 10 years as our backup/recovery storage with offsite replication. Given its track record and great support from EMC, we're unlikely to look elsewhere any time soon.

    Very easy to use and is as plug and play as you can get. There are configuration options for multiple schemas that best fits your organization.

    Support for AWS Backup is by Amazon itself so it is solid as always. If you have a business or higher level support plan you'll have no trouble getting engineers or other staff on the job to help you with whatever comes up.

    Customer support has had some ups and downs here. We've had several issues with EMC support before and during the acquisition by Dell, but in the last 18 months support has been top notch. Quick and knowledgeable help is but a chat away, or they will call you back so you don't have to wait on hold. The team supporting us is responsive and is quick to assist with any request or issue.

    Alternatives Considered

    AWS Backup

    Being an AWS service, AWS Backup integrates in a native way with other AWS services, providing an easy way to backup those services. Being able to create separate backup plans that meet specific business and regulatory compliance requirements provides us with capabilities to face auditing processes.
    Oscar Martinez | TrustRadius Reviewer

    PowerProtect DD (formerly Dell EMC Data Domain)

    We selected Data Domain due to its integration with our backup software. The Data Domain works well for what we need it to do.

    Return on Investment

    AWS Backup

    • Being able to offer live hot storage in the cloud for production environments allows me to get more people in the creative space with vast demand for speed.
    • Great integration with all my hardware, firewall and backup software was great.
    • Being able to network path my files like a native drive to my computer from the cloud made the designer not complain so much able learning new stuff.
    Daniel Cauley | TrustRadius Reviewer

    PowerProtect DD (formerly Dell EMC Data Domain)

    • We were able to immediately discontinue our remote tape storage and TBU maintenance.
    • Reduced backup footprint in the data center.
    • It is costly to expand so buy it with a purpose.
