Overall Satisfaction with PowerProtect DD

We had huge data of ourselves along with our partner ecosystem, and our end customers for whom we do the deployment and using PowerProtect DD made our work line very streamlined when it came to managing the entire data lifecycle. The data in use was highly duplicated, coming in from different sources, but with deduplication availability, this turned out to be really good in saving disk space and avoiding duplication. At the same time setting up policies on the console was also very reliable in order to setup backup policies and setting up data lifecycle policies. The DDOS contributes to agility and security, which helps us to deliver high-scale and very efficient storage with the utmost capabilities. The backup and restoration speed also fastens up, making the entire process very time and performance efficient.

Pros

  • Deduplication of data coming from different sources
  • Provides highly secure and efficient storage ecosystem
  • Backup and Restoration is fasten up
  • HA is achieved within independent stacks making the TCO reduced

Cons

  • Implementation of the product is complex and time taking, which needs to be improved.
  • If you have different data sources coming into the system, then installation needs to be carried away by a professional.
  • Deduplication
  • Backup and Restoration
  • DDOS capabilities
  • We were able to make our data ecosystem more efficient with suitable copies of data
  • Backup and restoration TAT reduced
  • Security piece got improved
  • Cost was a little high
We already had Avamar in place, and since we have a good ecosystem of Dell Solution suite and wanted to evaluate PowerProtect DD also from that perspective, hence we thought of going ahead with it. We knew the limitations with Avamar and PowerProtect DD were right there from that side of the business.

We have huge data coming in from different sources and also from multiple organizations in our Data centres. This data had multiple copies of the same data and was huge in size therefore, we wanted to have a solution in place which can help us with a good amount of deduplication at the deepest possible level to make sure that our ecosystem does not have multiple copies of the same data and is also efficient at the same time. Having said this, we wanted this solution to be secure and reliable since it had to be exposed to a huge critical set of data in the market. To add, backup and restoration was something that we were also keen on evaluating so that once we have efficient data within our system, the time it takes to backup and restoration also reduces. And all this was justified by this solution when we signed up with them. From the pricing perspective and the implementation side, the solution needs improvement to make it more efficient and user-friendly.
