We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The compare feature is the most valuable piece of it."
"Compared to the traditional way we did backups, with Snapshot it takes us less time. It has improved my organization by saving us time."
"This is a very mature product that does exactly what it needs to in taking temporary pictures of data states."
"The initial setup was straightforward."
"It has a user-friendly interface."
"The solution is fast and it doesn't use any disc space at all. You can also take as many snapshots as you like. These are the solution's most valuable features."
"SnapMirror and Snapshot are both very reliable products."
"The most valuable features of the solution are the repurposing and backup features."
"This mature product is the leader in the backup industry with unique features and capabilities for users with advanced backup needs."
"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."
"Not a perfect ten because there is one point off to give it room for improvement."
"Although support is good, the global support is lacking depending on location."
"The solution needs to ensure it has higher availability or business continuity."
"I think the automation needs some improvement."
"The price could be a bit lower."
"The company could update their products more regularly."
"The solution could include more databases and make it accessible to the DBAs. The automation process should be run in a way where it could be run from the database itself."
"NetApp needs to take a look at their pricing in comparison to the competition and make the appropriate change to attract more customers and gain in market share."
"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."
"It's not too expensive."
"As far as their licensing costs, the licensing is paid on a yearly basis. The organization pays for the licensing based on the software and the capacity that they choose."
