Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The ease of usability is the most valuable feature. It's very easy and quick to set up. It also has a central hub as opposed to GoldenGate which is one direct interface. For GoldenGate I would have needed three interfaces whereas with HVR I have a central interface that manages everything.""The solution is stable. We've never faced any stability issues.""The compare feature is the most valuable piece of it."

"The most valuable feature is the snap shot.""There are a lot of features that are excellent. The data compression during the transfer, for example, is good. The replication is great. The durability of the solution and the speed of the data moving from one site to another is impressive.""The solution is very stable.""Overall, the product is very good. It's an easy to use tool.""The most valuable feature is the data replication tool. There is also a lot of ability for data migration.""The user interface is very easy to manage. The replication is also very easy to set up.""This solution is easy to implement and easy to use.""They have a very effective dashboard and good reports."

Cons
"I would like for them to incorporate additional transformations. A valuable aspect of the product is that it does inflight transformations and that could be expanded.""The interface needs to be more user-friendly.""The documentation can be laid out better to make it easier to find things, and I really wish there was built-in support for changing passwords. Some features don't work as advertised for the platform/repository database, and HVR is not always the fastest at getting results."

"It is not as efficient as it needs to be. It doesn't compress the data really well when it is forwarded to a secondary site. The download performance could be better.""At the moment, we are not using the synchronous mirror, but we can implement the synchronous mirror. The only thing is that it needs another license. This is the same issue we have with business continuity. It needs another license to be implemented. You need too many separate licenses for the features. They should add some of the aspects of the premium bundle into the basic bundle. Sometimes our customers choose other replication services because of the initial cost of the licenses.""There is probably some limitations when it comes to the scalability of the solution.""The user interface could be simplified. They might want to have fewer options on it, to make it less complicated. There are a lot of options we never use ourselves. They're often very specialized and don't apply to us.""In the next release, I would like to get an active IP number solution.""The new coursework models need to be improved. The bandwidth monitoring could also be better.""We have different families of storage, such as the E-Series and Flash systems, but NetApp cannot be set up between them.""In the next release, I would like to see Data reduction included and WAN optimization."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I don't have the exact information, but I know it is high, and it is on a yearly basis. There is no additional cost for what we're doing. We're always open to doing things cheaper, so we might potentially implement a different solution."
