EMC AppSync Review

GUI sometimes becomes un-usable, but the App Consistent Snaps/Bookmarks function is valuable.


Valuable Features

App Consistent Snaps/Bookmarks and Snap and Mount function.

Improvements to My Organization

We have application consistent snaps of SQL mounted to development VM’s daily.

Room for Improvement

Each replication manager installation can only handle so many records. If you have over a certain number of bookmarks or snaps, the GUI becomes un-usable.

Use of Solution

3 years.

Deployment Issues

No.

Stability Issues

I occasionally get an “out of memory error” from the GUI. I think this has to do with us overloading the application.

Scalability Issues

Yes, if you have over a certain number of bookmarks or snaps, the GUI becomes un-usable.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

With replication manager, EMC support is pretty good, it seems to be a small team of knowledgeable engineers.

Technical Support:

With replication manager, EMC support is pretty good, it seems to be a small team of knowledgeable engineers.

Previous Solutions

No previous solution.

Initial Setup

It is fairly complex. There is a lot of prerequisite software that has to be installed on the client side.

Implementation Team

It was installed by a partner. Their level of expertise was adequate.

Other Advice

Consider using the newer version (Appsync) instead.
