What are the best aspects of this product?
The DDBoost by means of client direct is one feature that I like. It works exceptionally well in our NetWorker environment. Its data de-duplication helped reduced the load seen in the NetWorker server and Storage Nodes. This gave us the ability to cut back on the number of nodes within our backup environment. Hence, it saved plenty of of admin work needed for the environment upkeep.
What aspects are problematic or could work better?
When it comes to DDBoost, there's really nothing for NetWorker to report on. Specifically, it won't tell you when a client can't make a backup to a Data Domain appliance. This skips the Storage Node and keeps its bandwidth requirements mininimized.
What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?
Making backups dail for offsite storage for the DR is one reason why we have recovery/data protection systems. Our organization realized that we can be protected by remote and local means. That means our business can consistently operate in an event of data loss or a systems failure. We've been successful in recovering from our systems within a limited window period. With that, our business can keep going without suffering profits or losing data.
