It's a simple and efficient tool to build a disaster recovery solution that involves many applications such as Oracle, SQL, VMware, and Hyper-V.

What other advice do I have?

You must understand your environment to implement any replicated solution, talk to business area before implemented and design your Disastery Recovery .
System Engineer at a university with 1,001-5,000 employees
Initial setup was very easy as it was part of our Data ONTAP system, so we just select our source and destination volumes and click initialize.

What other advice do I have?

Keep in mind that is an asynchronous replication solution, so the destination will always lag behind compared to the source. If you can live with that, then it’s a perfect solution.

Excellent tool. Always a THUMBS UP. The support from Netapp itself is worth the product.
SAN Storage Administrator at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Great for Tier Two Applications but I will recommend EMC or Hitachi for Tier 1 Applications.
Senior Network Engineer at a wholesaler/distributor with 1,001-5,000 employees
In essence, the livelihood of the company is served up from a central NetApp storage system; all company data is there.

What other advice do I have?

NetApp is a solid solution for SAN needs. It is best to really do your homework and find the solution that is appropriate for the organization and allow for growth based on company historical data. You don't want to just purchase the top model solution just to say you did but at the same time you don't want to under engineer a solution either. Take your time and design what's best for the company.
