NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP

NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP has been greatly suited for running some lightweight applications our company uses as well as serving as a tertiary target that we mirror off to our Cloud Volumes ONTAP within our Cloud provider. The transfer of data runs very smoothly and consistently which has been tested thoroughly with ingest/egress. I do not believe this product would serve well for our large proprietary applications due to the effort it would take for us to shift workloads to the Cloud at this time.

Vembu BDR Suite

It is very well designed and easier to start with. The UI is very simple yet powerful enough. I would recommend Vembu BDR for managing Windows and Vmware environments. There are a plethora of features available which is surprising. The option to encrypt your backups and scheduling email reports after every task(Successful/failed) is a great advantage.

Pros

NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP

  • Integrates with NetApp infrastructure.

Vembu BDR Suite

  • Bare metal system images. These are incredibly flexible, enabling you to do dissimilar hardware restores, local or online backups and restore to VHD
  • Full, differential and transaction log backups for SQL server, ensuring rapid backup and restore, with maximum storage efficiency.
  • Incremental backups for files, meaning only the changes which have been made to a file are backed up, dramatically reducing time to backup and increasing storage efficiency.

Cons

NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP

  • See additional integration with other storage vendors.
  • Create single pane of view with integrated ONTAP systems.

Vembu BDR Suite

  • Upgrading to new versions is relatively labor-intensive.
  • VMs to be backed up sometimes fail due to a lack of ability to create a snapshot. Vembu should find a way to work around this issue.
  • Supporting external storage (cloud) could be easier to configure, use, and integrate into the back-up processes.

Vembu has a nice, easy-to-use, clean HTML interface. All of the features are easy to locate and are extremely easy to use, there are areas where the interface can be slow, such as indexing complex folder with lots of files, but give it time and it will show you what you need. With the automatic email alerts you are always kept up to date.

We utilized NetApp remote Professional Services to assist in our deployment and also engaged support since the deployment for assistance regarding some networking concerns. NetApp support was surprisingly quick to reply and very proactive in resolving our concerns much quicker than other support personnel from many of our other vendors we use. No complaints about NetApp support at this time.

It often takes a very long time to get an issue fixed. the support folks seem committed to getting it fixed but they often seem to be trying different things and hoping something works. I did not get the sense that they had a clear idea what was wrong.

Alternatives Considered

NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP

Cost was a huge factor and ease of integration and deployment led us to ultimately choose NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP for our tertiary backup design. For our lightweight applications, we chose NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP because we were able to kill two birds with one product and have the deployment efforts and time kept at a minimum which again helps saves cost.

Vembu BDR Suite

I tested Vembu against Veeam and for the price, Vembu was the better option. I also had a great support experience as I had to contact Vembu twice after mistakes I made. While using Veeam the software was not as intuitive and support responses were not as swift and accurate.

Return on Investment

NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP

  • Increased savings from on-prem data center costs.
  • Ease of integration into preexisting environment.

  • Well, in my opinion, Vembu Backup should be considerd an insurance policy. So if a fire never occurs was it a waste of insurance fee? Simple answer, no! Because you make the backup as a just in case, in that perspective, the ROI is instant when the unfortunate happens.
