NetApp Snapshot Other Advice

On a scale from one to ten, with one being the worst and ten being the best, I would rate NetApp's Snapshot as a six or seven. The problem with offering advice about this product is that it is just a component of a system. It is almost like somebody is asking you about how skilled you are with computers. If you think that skill with computers means you can push a button and something happens, you may be very skilled pushing that one button, but the skill is just pushing a button. You can press it or not. But if you have a whole keyboard, you won't press only one button. You buy the keyboard and use the whole keyboard. Some buttons will be pressed more frequently than other buttons. But you can not have a keyboard with half of the buttons or can't use a keyboard that is missing the one button you know how to use. On a keyboard, you can not say one button is more useful than another one. A keyboard is a whole thing. The NetApp solution is not just the Snapshot solution. This is a small part of the storage system. It is very useful — just excellent — but you can not use it without storage and other parts. You need the whole solution. It would be like buying a wheel without the car. You should not pay for something you can't use or have no need for in the first place. I can answer generally about the NetApp system, and I think it is a seven. View full review »

I'm quite happy with the solution and the integration it has with other products. I would recommend it to someone considering it. I would rate it with a nine out of ten. Not a perfect ten because there is one point off to give it room for improvement. View full review »

If I have to rate this solution out of ten, I will give it a ten. It is a very good product and in the next version the developers can perhaps work on more automation. View full review »
