NetApp SnapCenter Primary Use Case

Aaron Isaacson
Storage Administrator at a aerospace/defense firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
We use it for backup and for restore, primarily. It's really just for VMs. You can use it for other things, but we don't have other things to work with. View full review »

We use it for VMware. We haven't integrated any of our SQL or Exchange solutions with SnapCenter. We haven't tested that yet. I think there is a plugin for Oracle but we haven't tested that either. The primary thing we have been using in SnapCenter is the ability to integrate with our ESXi environment. We have about 300 virtual machines, including virtual desktops. That's going to be increased to about 400 or 500, once the projects in the pipeline are rolled out. View full review »

Senior Systems Engineer at Our Space Appliances
Primary use case is covering fast backup and restore for customers, mostly for SQL databases, some Oracle database systems in servers, and some file share backups with Snapshots with the possibility of restore. SnapCenter is usually an additional software, which is not the main backup software. Most companies have already found a backup solution and are using SnapCenter to be able to do a fast restoration of their data. Therefore, they are using two solutions at once, side-by-side. Companies will have their primary backup solution and SnapCenter as a redundancy because the primary solution isn't favored to recover data so quickly. View full review »

It's for storage. We sell a call center and voicemail solution and we store the recordings there. We also store the configuration file there. We use it for redundancy. We are using an HA proxy for redundancy so if one fails we can use another node. View full review »

Edgars Jansons
Storage Architect at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
We are a NetApp partner. For our systems, we are using SnapCenter only for testing purposes. For customers, we started to install when it was SnapManager, quite some years ago. We have many installations with SnapManager and some installations with SnapCenter. We're at the stage of migrating from SnapManager to SnapCenter. Our customers primarily use SnapCenter for SQL Server and VMware. View full review »

IT Manager at a tech company with 51-200 employees
We use it for Oracle, on the client side. In our company, we are mostly using SnapCenter software in our test environment. There are many customers using NetApp products, but most of them don't use SnapCenter software in their production environment. So we do not have a lot of experience with it in production systems. We are testing it in our data core environment and our test environment. We check the software's features and new features, and sometimes we do troubleshooting as well. We test VMware Snapshot, Hyper-V Snapshot, database Snapshots, for example, MS SQL and Oracle. View full review »
