Veritas Volume Replicator [EOL] Review

Good for DR, but Oracle Dataguard has improved since 9i. One advantage to the is that you can use VVR on all d

Valuable Features

The ability to replicate volumes between sans with a few commands, this made server migrations easy. We also have little tolerance for down time and being able to do operations on line, including replicating production data enabled us to perform many changes and migrations with little production downtime.

Improvements to My Organization

It was our DR solution for Oracle databases for 7 years.

Room for Improvement

Slow GUI on remote sites. We had issues when some config changes had to be done in remote data centers.

Use of Solution

We used this solution for approximately 7 years. We have moved away from it recently due to our decommissioning of SANS.

Deployment Issues


Stability Issues

Occasional bugs, but nothing of concern.

Scalability Issues


Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

Excellent, we had on sight SME for new releases, migrations that knew the product well.

Technical Support:

Excellent as well.

Previous Solutions

This. was our first DR solution. We used it due to the the low RPO and RTO.

Initial Setup

Setup is straight forward. There are definitely some settings that might be missed when using this product, but once parameters have been determined set up is the same.

Implementation Team

We implemented through a vendor team. Their level of expertise was outstanding. After a few vendor implementation our own in house team supported the product and did subsequent implementations.

Other Solutions Considered

Oracle Data guard.
