AWS Backup

AWS [Backup] does what it intends on doing. AWS [Backup] is very fast, however, for that speed, you'll end up with a high bill at the end of the month. Compared to competitors, AWS [Backup] is a lot more expensive than others. However, I believe it makes it up in it's versatility - there's no company more compatible with others than AWS.

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.

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.

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.

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

  • We use a lot of AWS services, so backup goals are now simpler to achieve.
  • We let auditors access the dashboard to check backup status.
Oscar Martinez | 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.
