Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Networker is being used in conjuncture with Dell DataDomain to facilitate the backup and restores of a large number of VMs as well as a number of Databases. We are using it as a department and not across the entire enterprise. It provides data recovery in the event of user or hardware error. That being said, it has been hard to work with, is not user friendly and tends to fail backups at a regular basis. We've been looking for an alternative.

There are far better options for data protection and disaster recovery than this

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use Dell EMC Networker to protect about 90 virtual machines and a handful of physical servers across two AD domains. We had been looking for dedicated backup hardware and settled on Data Domain as the solution. At the time we were using Acronis as the software side of our DR strategy and were aware we needed something more robust, but this was secondary to having dedicated storage appliances. Dell offered to bundle Networker with this hardware and the price/feature set seemed to be a good fit.

Networker, reliable but works like backup software

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

At Provident Funding, we use Networker for backing up virtual machine images, a few physical Windows systems, and some of our Cellera NAS. We push it all to a data domain. It is being used only by IT directly and users make requests to us as needed for recoveries. Networker gives us reduced risk of data loss.

NetWorker, better called "Not Workin'"

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We have been using NetWorker for the past three years for all Open Systems (Windows and Linux) backups. It has been the worst nightmare of my 40+ years in IT. We never had even one day when all of our backups completed successfully. Support was horrible. We are now in the process of completely replacing it with a different solution.
