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

Pros
"Technical support has been very helpful when we have issues."

More NetApp SnapCenter Pros »

"The solution has been stable so far.""The most valuable features are the backup and restore. With this in place along with the clustering, the database is safe from hacking, hardware failure, power failures, and system crashes.""The solution is quite stable. We haven't experienced any bugs, glitches, or crashes. We find it to be quite reliable.""We use Data Guard for online replication from data center, to data center for high availability. This is the most important feature.""We have found the replication feature the most useful. We use this feature the most. The ability to recover a database with less effort and the use of Oracle Data Guard Broker to administer the complete environment are also very useful features.""It's a very good solution if you want to protect your data across two data centers, or you have a middle man or many administrators who use these solutions for protecting their data. It's very reliable compared to other solutions that are most often not storage-based."

Cons
"The UI, the User Interface, needs to be improved. It's not as clean or modern as it could be."

More NetApp SnapCenter Cons »

"It is a rather complex solution, so it could be more user-friendly.""When the data replicates into the standby database there is a possibility of having a microsecond amount of data loss. The data loss occurs when there is a network disconnection between the primary and secondary standby database located in the data centers or if there is a crash in the primary database.""The pricing of the solution is quite high. They should do what they can to bring it down so that it is more reasonable for customers like us.""It is a very useful administrative IT tool. It saves on costs.""One thing that can be improved is the GUI. It would be good to have a very nice GUI to easily configure and administer, providing different presentations to the database administrator. The feature that can be included is the integration with third-party monitoring systems, that is, monitoring systems from other vendors, not only from Oracle.""The IP implementation and maintenance are a little bit hard to manage across Oracle solutions, including Oracle Data Guard."
