Overall Satisfaction with NetApp SnapMirror

We leverage NetApp's SnapMirror at both the volume level and full SVM level for our NAS & SAN workloads for disaster recovery between multiple datacenters and Cloud locations. All of our NetApp storage systems are set up to use SnapMirror to help protect our data between sites for a really fast and reliable recovery option.
  • Ease of use.
  • Reliable.
  • Efficient.
  • Integrate with other technology providers.
  • Improve the initial Synch Process.
  • Make custom schedule creation easier.
  • Retention capabilities.
  • Ease of use.
  • Reliability.
  • NetApp SnapMirror has allowed us to recover critical data in a timely manner on multiple occasions.
  • We have been able to decrease our RPO objectives.
  • We have been able to decrease our DR costs as well.
We chose NetApp's SnapMirror solution primarily because it was already integrated and licensed on our storage platforms. This allowed us to have a very fast implementation time and really allowed us to quickly close the learning gap of our administrators. Not only is NetApp SnapMirror easy to use, but it is also really easy to set up. IBM's product seemed quite difficult to set up and it would have taken our team much more time (which we don't have) to learn that product than NetApp's SnapMirror.

Do you think NetApp SnapMirror delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with NetApp SnapMirror's feature set?

Yes

Did NetApp SnapMirror live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of NetApp SnapMirror go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy NetApp SnapMirror again?

Yes

NetApp SnapMirror has been used in our specific environment for a very long time and is well suited for implementing quick and seamless recovery point objectives and vaulting data for required periods of time as well. I would not recommend leveraging SnapMirror as your only disaster recovery solution as it is not intended to be an enterprise solution sole DR posture.
