NetApp SnapMirror Review

Excellent tool. Always a THUMBS UP. The support from Netapp itself is worth the product.

What is most valuable?

Its ability to transfer data retaining its complete integrity, access, permission etc.

How has it helped my organization?

We have migrated data from old and expiring Netapp hardware using Snapmirror - thereby allowing us to decomm the old hardware and save power, maintainence, cost etc.

What needs improvement?

None for now.

For how long have I used the solution?

8 years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?


What do I think about the stability of the solution?


How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Excellent. None of the users whose data has been migrated using Snapmirrot have ever complained back to us.

Technical Support:

10/10, just like any Netapp support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

No - this is the best tool from Netapp and we never thought of any other tool. In fact, all additional features like Netapp Datamotion for vfilers use SnapMirror as their backend.

How was the initial setup?

Straight forward - infact just 3-4 commands can effectively deliver the power of Snapmirror.

What about the implementation team?

Obviously in-house.

What was our ROI?


What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

No idea. I am a technical guy and dont get into finances.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

None. This technology has been in place for last 10 years as I know and I have personally worked 8+ years on it.
