The Data Domain system derives its performance advantages from the EMC Data Domain Stream-Informed Segment Layout (SISLTM) scaling architecture. This CPU-centric approach minimizes the number of disk spindles required to achieve the throughput performance needed for critical single-stream operations. Data Domain system stores unique data sequence only once and save significant physical storage capacity by substituting small references for identical redundant sequence, enabling cost-efficient retention on disk for fast, reliable recoveries. Snapshot technology further enables extended local and off site retention on disk.

The Data Domain appliance series is qualified with excellent enterprise backup software and archiving applications and easily integrates into the existing storage infrastructure without change for either data center or distributed office data protection.
Dell EMC Data Domain DD670 - NAS server - 12 TB is rated4.50 out of5 by6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Deduplication and Compression are the most valuable. The processing capabilities (version DD670) could be improved.What is our primary use case?The Data Domain serves as our primary backup device used with Veeam. It is used for all service backups and restores.How has it helped my organization?This allows our organization to send more data to this device compared to others. It also allows us a fast recovery of files or Virtual Machines if needed being on-premise.What is most valuable?I would rate it at 5/5 as the deduplication and compression of the device for backups is outstanding. We have about 55TB total space on the Data Domain which we send Veeam backups to and we have sent over 200TB to the array.The Deduplication and Compression are the most valuable as it allows us to back up allot more data to the device knowing it will compress it well.What needs improvement?The processing capabilities I believe could be improved, however, we have an older unit DD670 and newer units may have already improved upon this.For how long have I used the solution?More than five years.What do I think about the stability of the solution?No issues with stability.What do I think about the scalability of the solution?No issues encountered as we added a second shelf of disks without bringing the head unit down.How are customer service and technical support?Customer Service:Customer service for this unit is top notch and they are fast to get back to you with a Support issue.Technical Support:Technical Support is also top notch and are quick to respond to queries or tickets.If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?How was the initial setup?I was not involved in the initial setup of the array.What about the implementation team?It was implemented through a vendor as well as in-house personnel.What was our ROI?It has been very good especially with the expansion shelf added.What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?Which other solutions did I evaluate?What other advice do I have?Review the newer versions of the device and evaluate them if possible. You will get great benefit for backups.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ?I used Sympana commvault and CA Arcserve. Both are good for small organisations but not up to the mark for enterprise.Valuable FeaturesFast backup for complex and huge size data.Improvements to My OrganizationMy Organisation provides Backup as services. DD useful for shared platform for customers.Room for ImprovementFrom a technical point of view, all EMC products have to improve the troubleshoot feature like, log should be in human readable format. Instead of generic errors, they should elaborate a bit more.Use of SolutionPast 5 to 6 years.Deployment IssuesEasy to deploy.Stability IssuesWrong integration is always the cause of unstable environment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A solution with excellent technical support and good stabilityWhat is our primary use case?The primary use is as a company backup.What is most valuable?The most valuable features are the DD Boost and the multiple applications and model platforms.What needs improvement?The solution needs a better cloud version. We need a solution that has a better understanding of the cloud.The pricing model needs to be improved.For how long have I used the solution?I've been using the solution for five years.What do I think about the stability of the solution?The stability is very good.What do I think about the scalability of the solution?Scalability isn't the best.How are customer service and technical support?The solution has excellent technical support.How was the initial setup?The initial setup was straightforward. Deployment takes about two weeks with migration. You only need a few people for deployment and two or three people for maintenance.What about the implementation team?We used an integrator to assist with the implementation.What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?I don't know the exact pricing, but I believe the solution is costly. You may also need to pay for extra features above the standard licensing.What other advice do I have?We use the on-premises version of the solution.I would rate the solution nine out of ten.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good deduplication and compression of storageWhat is our primary use case?The primary use of the solution is inline deduplication.What is most valuable?The solution offers good storage. Also, deduplication and completion are the best features, in my opinion.What needs improvement?The pricing should be adjusted. Customers continuously talk about the price. They know it is a good solution and they really need the type of storage the solution offers, but it costs somewhere around $100,000 and up for enterprises. It's not cheap, but it's very important for data vendors. My customers are banks and petroleum sectors, so they need the backup and archiving systems. They can't leave a data center without it, even if the cost is high.For how long have I used the solution?I've been selling the solution for two years.What do I think about the stability of the solution?The solution is very stable. My customers have been very pleased with the solution so far.What do I think about the scalability of the solution?The solution can scale up to one petabyte right now. It's very good for enterprise-level organizations.I think this level of scale is still only for cloud providers. It's not for every customer. If I am a cloud provider or internet service provider, I can use it, as my scale is very, very, large. With any other company, you will not need more than 200 kilobytes.How are customer service and technical support?The level of technical support depends on your SLA. You have, for example, next business day, full support, full support plus, full support in four hours, onsite service, etc.EMC is under the Dell technologies portfolio. You've got one of the best technical support teams looking out for you.What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?Pricing is related to size. A lower range solution might be about $33,000. My customers use higher range versions with a price of around $100,000. That's the price for both the hardware and the software.What other advice do I have?I'm using the solution as a technical case professional. I'm selling it to my customers.I sell the on-premises deployment model.It's the best solution for deduplication and compression of storage, but the pricing is a little high.The solution works with any backup software. You might use it as a standalone or use it with VM, or solutions like Symantec, CMC software, etc.For those considering implementing the solution, I would say that they need to know their data gross and they need to allow for architecting. They need an understanding of their current backup situation and what they will need. They will need to remember to back up every day if their data is very, very important.When you are buying a backup solution, the Dell EMC team has an architecture team. They can be used to study the environment, so they can advise on what you need. A new user won't have to worry about it. Dell EMC will take care of everything.Also, a user will still need to do data protection. They need to buy security devices for their environment. They should make a backup outside of their environment and make sure the backup is not connected to any internet connection to avoid hacking.I would rate the solution ten out of ten.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:Reseller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good integrated deduplication functionality with the ability to replicate between two devices on different occasionsWhat is our primary use case?Primarily we use the solution as data storage and as a backup solution.What is most valuable?The solution's most valuable feature is the integrated deduplication function. Another valuable feature is the possibility for replication between two devices on different occasions.What needs improvement?The pricing could be better but it's still not too expensive. We haven't used the solution for long enough to really know what might be useful in a new release. We haven't used the full functionality yet and I'm not sure if all the functions are working as expected. We are using it, but it's not fully implemented.For how long have I used the solution?I've been using the solution for six months.How are customer service and technical support?We don't use technical support from EMC, but we do get it from our reseller, and they have been just fine in terms of offering assistance.How was the initial setup?The initial setup was straightforward.What about the implementation team?We had a reseller assist us with the implementation. We're very satisfied with the experience we had with them.What other advice do I have?We use the on-premises deployment model.I would recommend the solution to someone considering it.I would rate the solution seven or eight out of ten.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you have a senior backup and/or storage tech, go for it. If not, it's harder to manage.Valuable FeaturesDeduplication and VTLs.Improvements to My OrganizationAs the cost of tapes start to mount, using the DD box for daily and weekly backups, and just keeping monthly backups on tapes, has greatly reduced the cost of backups.It is an extremely useful tool to use for example in my case, in a redundant environment, as I manage duplications through Netbackup with Storage Lifecycle Policies. I keep my daily and weekly backups on the DD boxes replicated on both sites, and download the monthly backups for archive purposes.That way I get the instant recovery that the DD unit provides, and in case I need to go live on the secondary environment, I can restore any vmware server in a matter of hours.Room for Improvement1 - Adding tapes to the VTL is a complex task.2 - If DB backups could be somewhat compressed it would just be the dream product.Use of Solution5 years on different versions of DD.Deployment IssuesNone on basic deployment for CIF usage, the VTL and virtual tapes is more complex to setup.Stability IssuesNone at all, I have hardly had to reboot the boxes aside from a firmware update.Scalability IssuesNone, I am adding a second disk box and it is pretty much plug and play.Customer Service and Technical SupportCustomer Service: Excellent, when there is a new firmware update, EMC will call me to do the upgrade without even having to ask.I have had a couple of hard drive fail, and they sent a replacement right away.Technical Support: Very good, I had only had to deal with first level support for firmware updates, had some minor discrepancies with the steps to follow, after reading the instructions on how to do the firmware upgrade, the tech wanted to jump a couple steps.Previous SolutionsNo, we had regular backups to tape and a staging area, but no deduplication.Initial SetupInitial setup is pretty straightforward, VTL configuration is a bit more complex.Implementation TeamImplementation was done through a vendor, their level of experience was very good. At the time of implementation I have had experience with the technology, but had not participated in the initial setup of the product.ROIWith the increasing amount of data handled every year, the money we save on tapes, plus the speed that the DD allows backups to be done and having instant restores, makes this product the best investment a backup environment can add.Other Solutions ConsideredAt the time of purchase, there was no other solution that was able to perform the same tasks.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent enterprise-level solution with a good deduplication featureWhat is our primary use case?Our customers have a lot of big data that they work with. The solution allows them to decrease the amount of data which can appear over the network and optimizes the bandwidth of the network itself.What is most valuable?The deduplication feature is the most valuable part of the solution.The backup storage is also very good.What needs improvement?The solution could adjust the size of the discs. The processor or the cache on the Data Domain could be better.How are customer service and technical support?Technical support is very good.How was the initial setup?The initial setup is very straightforward. Deployment takes about a week. We needed two engineers to handle the initial setup.What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?EMC is very expensive for small customers. For enterprise-level companies, like banks, it offers a good price.What other advice do I have?We use the on-premises deployment model.We're a reseller; we offer this solution to our clients.I would rate the solution eight out of ten.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
