I believe it would work well with continuous replication in a DR scenario with no time limits and having the ability to fail back is a bonus, but in a one off move the decision to restrict the time it can sync for has proven to be an issue for us.

Once through to support it is very good and they have assisted us through a number of issues. I don't always think that they provide a solution, more a workaround, but in a move situation where each copy is moving once, that isn't an issue. I'd be more concerned if we were using it to manage a DR scenario.

I was not involved in the initial review of DT so I have nothing to compare too.

Return on Investment

  • It has allowed us through DR testing to meet contractual requirements of our major accounts..
  • It gives us peace of mind that in the event of a major issue we can perform our daily business with a relative success rate.
