Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by With the integration with Data Domain Boost, we are significantly saving backup space. However, backups of VMs could be improved. Valuable Features:* Support for various operating systems, we use, AIX, Solaris, Linux, VMware, and Windows* Excellent deduplication with Data Domain Boost* A good user interface, so we can, from a single console, manage the entire backup infrastructureImprovements to My Organization:We are using a single product, with the same licenses, to backup Oracle servers, SQL Servers, Exchange, and our virtual environment. It also allows us to clone the backups to a disaster recovery site. With the integration with Data Domain Boost we are significantly saving backup space.Room for Improvement:I think, first of all, the part that relates to backup virtual machines. I've seen better and faster solutions, for example: Veeam.Use of Solution:We've used NetWorker for about ten years. We are primarily using NetWorker to backup our core servers with Solaris. For the last three years, we use Networker to backup the entire infrastructure.We're also using the NetWorker Module for Microsoft v8.2.1.8, and the NetWorker VMware Protection v1.1.1.50.Deployment Issues:No issues encountered.Stability Issues:We had no problems with stability.Scalability Issues:We had no problems with scalability. We have two data centers with different infrastructure.Customer Service:I have worked with local EMC partners, I have had a positive experience.Technical Support:I did not use technical support for NetWorker, but I have used it for some other EMC products and I think they were a little slow. 7/10.Initial Setup:Initial setup was straightforward. The documentation is good.Implementation Team:We did it in-house.Cost and Licensing Advice:We use NetWorker Capacity Licensing Model. Estimating the backup environment's capacity is, for me, very complex, and I think not even clear.Other Advice:It is a good product with some problems backing up virtual machines (slow restore). We use NetWorker Capacity Licensing Model. Estimating the backup environment's capacity is, for me, very complex, and I think not even clear.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 2 out of 5 by It allows us to share our knowledge and experience with it on other sites in our organization, although it lacks support for Xen and RHEV. Valuable Features:It's easy to configure and manage.Improvements to My Organization:In our organization, we are working with Networker on other sites, so we can share our knowledge and experience.Room for Improvement:We pretend to start image backups from VMware, but we are also working with Xen and RHEV, and this product doesn't support those platforms.Use of Solution:I´ve worked on it for over 10 years, since v6.Deployment Issues:No issues encountered.Stability Issues:Just in version 7.x.x, where they changed all graphical interface and had some stability issues.Scalability Issues:When I used to work in a consultant office, we had to split one backup server into three to support the amount of clients. This customer had a lot of backup server instability.Customer Service:It is great; EMC support is one of the best.Technical Support:It is great, a good level of knowledgement and escalation.Previous Solutions:I used to work with TSM as well, but Networker is easier to deploy.Other Advice:There are some features that other software, like Avamar, does better, and that EMC could incorporate into Networker.Ensure you have good architecture job before implementation. At our organization, we are scheduling all our backups from the same business line to ensure it's all done at the same time, to ensure all backups are scheduled at the same time.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Backup software solution which supports majority of IT platforms (Windows, UNIX, Oracle, SQL, Lotus, VMware etc.) Valuable Features:Backup jobs can be scheduled and automatedMonitoring of backups and configuration tasks are centralizedCompatibility of the solution covers large OS/DataBases/ApplicationsImprovements to My Organization:In a large enterprise DataCenter there is traditionally a lot of applications/databases which are owned by different administrators.Without a centralized backup solution, each application/DB owner has to ensure its backup separately and if a problem occurs, he has to execute recovery tasks. In these conditions, the application rower has to make some extra jobs : backup scripting, verifying backups have finished successfully, recovery jobs... This does impact his efficiency and the global enterprise efficiency.If a centralized backup solution like Networker is deployed, the backup/recovery tasks will be on the responsibility of only one resource which is the backup administrator. This does directly involve that each application/DB owner can spend more time on his real job: optimizing the platform that he owns.Room for Improvement:With Networker 8.0 I had an issue related to VMware VADP backups.An Image level backup of a RHEL VM finished successfully, but when I tried to restore it the transfer speed was very low, and the restore operation took 20 hours to restore 17 GB which represents 50% of total VM size. I was then obliged to abort the restore operation because there was backup jobs planned and Networker was deployed with only one tape drive in this case (the tape drive can't write backups and perform restores simultaneously).I contacted the support team to analyze this performance issue. They said that this happened because it was a Linux machine backed up with Windows Vcenter Proxy. For me this is not acceptable... I hope this will be resolved in the 8.2 version of Networker, because restore speed is important (RTO)Use of Solution:4 yearsDeployment Issues:Deployment tasks are not really hard. Networker is well documented.Technical Support:7/10Initial Setup:Initial setup was complex because I had to integrate Exchange Server and I had no knowledge on how it works.I asked to the Exchange administrator to assist me on the deployment and together we setup up the Exchange backup job.Other Solutions Considered:IBM TSM; HP data protector; Symantec Netbackup/Backupexec are main competitor to Networker.I remember a customer asked me to advise him between deploying Networker or TSM. The customer wanted to integrate a Data Domain device to his backup solution. I advised him to use Networker because TSM is not compatible with DDBoost protocol which improves DataDomain performance: Deploying TSM in this case was a limitation!Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:We are an EMC partner November 2, 2014
