NetApp SnapMirror

It is ideal for small and large organizations that have a variety of different business scenarios and locations regarding disparate IT System and complex BCDR Plans. It is flexible and can grow.

Alternatives Considered

Over the years we have transitioned to NetApp SnapMirror for all our storage needs. However, due to the short life cycle of support, it is cost prohibitive to maintain after support is ended. The main reason we have liked NetApp SnapMirror due to the many options and standardized management capabilities and flexible options for provisioning and setup of storage.
