If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering NetApp SnapMirror, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
I would rate this product 10 out of 10.
I would recommend using only on NAS, a file-based storage, not as a storage-based Network. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
No solution is ideal. Every solution should continue to develop because customer requirements change over time. This is a solution that I recommend because it is easy to use. Our customers choose the functionality that is useful for them. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
We use the on-premises deployment model. I would rate the solution eight out of ten.
It's a good solution that will give you what you need. I would rate it an eight out ten.
My advice to others would be to do a test run first, to see is the solution does what you want it to do. On a scale from one to ten, I will rate the solution an eight, because it doesn't solve all our issues. But it is easy to implement, easy to set up, and it works.
We use the on-premises deployment model. Overall, we've been very happy with this solution. We'd recommend it to others to use. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.
We are running multiple versions of the solution, including 9.3, 9.5 and 9.6 versions, and, sometimes, we are migrating from 8.2 version of 7-Mode to 9.3 or 9.5 version of NetApp Cluster Telnet. We're a NetApp partner. We use a private cloud deployment model ourselves and we are also a service provider for our customers. It's quite stable, it's not that easy to implement, but it's stable, and it's reliable, and all the data that's on the destination are read-only so there is also extra security. I would advise it would be a good idea to implement it with VMware. It would make good base for disaster recovery. I would rate the solution ten out of ten. It's really reliable.
We are using the private cloud deployment model. I would say that if people are using this product they should make use of the snap shortcut. It would be very useful to them. If they can afford it, they should get the second box to put at a different site and replicate it for maximum protection of their data. I would rate the solution seven out of ten.
