Integration with VMware Snapshot makes it easy to use

What is our primary use case?

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.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's very helpful because SnapCenter is already integrated with VMware Snapshot, so it's very easy to use."
  • "I have an issue with SnapCenter because sometimes a VM cannot be backed up... The way SnapCenter works is that it makes a backup of all the VMs and then it removes all the old backups. If one VM cannot be backed up for some reason, it has already created a new backup for all the VMs but it cannot remove the old backups. It ends up creating so many backups in VMware and it will cause a performance problem if the condition is not fixed."

What other advice do I have?

Just try it. I would rate SnapCenter at eight out of ten because it needs some improvement, as I outlined above.
