NetApp SnapMirror Review

Simple to use, an effective dashboard, and good reporting


What is our primary use case?

This solution is a storage replication software, embedded in storage filing that takes a snapshot copy and transfers it to a different location and a different Net Application.

The deployment model we are using is on-premises.

What is most valuable?

What I like most about this solution is its simplicity.

They have a very effective dashboard and good reports.

What needs improvement?

This solution is stable but needs improvements with the network.

In the next release, I would like to see data reduction included and WAN optimization.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Stability needs improvement.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This solution is scalable, it's good.

We have between one thousand and fifteen hundred users.

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

Previously I did not use another solution. This is the only solution that I have used.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward.

The deployment took a few hours.

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

It's part of the NetApp Firewall, so it's free.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend using only on NAS, a file-based storage, not as a storage-based Network.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
