Anonymous UserStorage Consultant at a computer software company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"Syniti Data Replication is very easy to use. It is user-friendly and easy to set up. You can provide or create connections with just a simple click. It is minimally intrusive."
"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."
"There should be an option to easily create tables from its graphical user interface. Its price should also be improved."
"I don't have any visibility on the price because I am on the technical side, but based on what our client said, it is more expensive than other products. Its licensing is on a yearly basis."
