What is most valuable?

Snap mirror and implementation with 3rd party backup software.

How has it helped my organization?

It gave us enough time to do the backup for big databases and mount them in a certain location, from there on tapes. So basically made the production database independent of the backups, so we could have the backup window larger.

What needs improvement?

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?
