What is most valuable?

The ability to control functionality with a command line utility for ease of scripting.

How has it helped my organization?

SRDF has served as a robust method of providing a golden, point-in-time copy of our most critical data.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see command line status queries give higher level, more meaningful results; i.e. data synchronizing, completely synced or split and write ready.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Cost was rolled into a much bigger purchase. Ongoing cost was not that detailed.

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

Our team made the decision to make a change to IBM's XIV asynchronous data replication. The switch was made due to cost.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Log shipping methods by Oracle and Sequel.
