The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score. The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score. (20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.) Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) * 80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews; two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old, as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What is most valuable?

It's a simple and efficient tool to build a disaster recovery solution that involves many applications such as Oracle, SQL, VMware, and Hyper-V.

How has it helped my organization?

We have a VMware environment and many NFS exports to Linux servers which are easy to replicate. If we lose the main environment, we can restore all the applications to the recovery site to the appointed LUNs, and then the NFS servers to... more»

What needs improvement?

I think that NetApp needs to improve the performance of SnapMirror with controller volume access. This is because when you have many SnapMirror jobs running, the controllers give priority to accessing volumes and transfers remain slow. It is... more»

What is most valuable?

Continuous Data Protection and Remote Data Protection are the most valuable features: * Continuous Data Protection: Enables the rolling back of volume states to a point in time within seconds. * Remote Data Protection: Permits the replication... more»

How has it helped my organization?

A traditional way of data protection is to perform backups. With a backup solution, we can implement Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs). However, we are not really sure how to reach Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs), especially when those RTOs... more»

What needs improvement?

RecoverPoint journals consume a lot of storage to obtain a large RPO.

What do you think of EMC AppSync?

Valuable Features Snap mirror and implementation with 3rd party backup software. • Improvements to My Organization It gave us enough time to do the backup for big databases and mount them in a certain location, from there on tapes. So basically made the production database independent of the backups, so we could have the backup window larger. • Room for Improvement Speed of the snapshots, the way how lun's are managed. • Use of Solution About 2 years. • Deployment Issues Some issues with Luns management, luns weren't expired. Also issues with its own database. It didn't marked the unmounted databases and those had to be marked manually. • Stability Issues Yes. Periodically I needed to restart the agent on the client side and sometimes on the server side. •...

What is most valuable?

The data protection provides peace of mind.

How has it helped my organization?

More reliable and accessible data protection than backups alone.

What needs improvement?

Specialized applications like SnapManager for Exchange (SME) are finicky. My experience with SME is that it is not as stable at the overall Snap platform (which is part of ONTAP, not a separate product like the SnapManager products). SME does... more»

What is most valuable?

* It centralizes your data. * It lets your storage take care of backup, DR, and BCP. * You never have to worry about protecting your virtual machines.

How has it helped my organization?

Did you lose your VM? No worries, spin up a new VM and attach to data. Set a policy and tag it during storage provisioning. You never have to worry about maintaining millions of files stored across several thousands of virtual machines.

What needs improvement?

If there is a way to save more on the number of snapshots, it should be included in the next release. If your data is more dynamic and changes frequently, you need more granular retention levels and need to save it for a longer duration, then... more»
