The question really shouldn’t be “why Avamar?” but instead why NOT? If you haven’t looked in a few years maybe you should look again. With the introduction of the Dell EMC Data Protection Suite, Avamar can be packaged to almost any budget, without compromising any of its features. If anything the DPS Suite adds additional functionality that in years past would have added cost. The DPS Suite gives customers the choice to license Avamar either by the amount of data they are backing up or by the number of ESXi sockets they have.
