We implemented Data Domain but the backup and restore times were terrible.  The 
largest database is a 6.7TB DB that takes anywhere between 4 - 5 hrs for backup 
and 7-8 hrs to restore.  Since this wasn't acceptable, we've implemented 
NetBackup in between with OST / Boost technology which puts the backup on to 
DataDomain.  The backup times are now 2.5 hrs and restores are between 4-5 hrs

Data Domain backups work very well  We've been using rman incrementally updated 
backups as described here:

We are able to do a full backup of a 1.2TB database in less than 30 minutes.

Hi.  We have recently gone to EMC Data Domain for our rman backups.  They seem 
to be working fine, and our restore validation also worked fine.  I am just 
curious if anyone has run into any problems/gotchas with data domain.
