We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution is very stable. Once it's installed, many customers forget they even have it."
"It can replicate data from a distant location and it can scan it as well. It has continuous data replication with almost no data loss."
"The feature of taking snapshots from the replicated volumes has allowed us to use them for DR testing to validate the application consistent point of recovery."
"We've found the support to be very good overall."
"The solution normally supports only specific types and amounts of storage. If it could be increased to support much larger amounts or a wider range, it could fetch a bigger market."
"Other hypervisors should be integrated with this system. Other hypervisors should be able to get the benefits of this solution."
"The main pain point that we experienced is during device creation. For every newly provisioned volume, creating replication relationships between production and DR site, creating snapshots for third copy at DR site, and configuring them in appropriate replication groups and device groups means that there are lot of steps involved and a lot of room for error. There has to be a lot of checks and balances which need to be incorporated to make sure that the solution is set up correctly."
"If you are new to the product, the initial setup might be a bit difficult."
