What do you like best?

I have been using NetApp Backup Recovery solutions for some time now. It has benefited us in more way than one. We tons of Media to be captured and backed up, this solution was key for our business. The recovery solutions to safeguard our critical data. Drive operational efficiencies by reducing backup time, improving data recovery, and cutting infrastructure, tape, and administrative costs. The use of Snapshot™ and replication technologies to simplify virtualization and big data management was key.

There are more good than bad in using NetApp Backup Recovery solutions, but my standpoint, I have none.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Some problems that we are solving are r/w speeds, bandwidth access, data retention, etc... The benefits that we have realized is that by creating disk-to-disk backups in native format is a pulse for us..this allows for reduced backup times and with data de-duplication, at time able to save on disk space.

Management of NetApp Backup and Recovery needs more work.

What do you like best?

I have used NetApp backup and recovery for several years. I like using the Snapshot/SnapMirror technology. It is very reliable and I quit using tapes because I used SnapMirror between two datacenters.

What do you dislike?

There is not much reporting associated with the built-in snapshot technology.

NetApp protection manager is too difficult to try to use. But it is still not as bad as SnapProtect.

If we were talking about SnapProtect, I would say that I don't like any of it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Considering SnapProtect? Don't!

Will Snapshot and SnapMirror meet your needs? This is the right choice.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to restore individual files to within the last hour on CIFS and NFS volumes. This is a big win for IT when you are able to rescue a file for individuals quickly. Restores of virtual machines is also very quick.

Efficient, low Administrative Backups

What do you like best?

Remote sites can be administered remotely with ease and automatically. The efficiency of SnapVault, enables utilization of low bandwidth connections. Use of the VSC makes the protection of a virtual environment an easier task. The integration of the SnapManager products with VSC give a consistent portal when used with Operations Manager.

What do you dislike?

You have to ensure that retention schedules are followed and be able to troubleshoot from the bottom up. System manager helps with this task, but it takes discipline and routine to follow.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

SnapVault helps to leverage a more cost effective solution which can store many backups to disk. SnapVault disk backup is economical due to the use of SATA disks. Due to the leveraging of block-level backups instead of file-level

backups, minimal bandwidth is required, which allows a more consistent experience with remote and branch offices.

NetApp Best Selling Points

What do you like best?

These are NetApp Sweet tools. Replicating data from one NetApp filer to another filer or from one NetApp Cluster to another using their snapshot technology is how NetApp does it backup. Replicating data using snapmirror to a dr site as a solution for disaster recovery. Using snapvault to backup a volume to secondary filer with denser, cheaper disks to keep the data for a longer retention requirements is easy and fast.

What do you dislike?

The tools does what they are designed to do and it's working great. It would be nice if data replication between 7-mode to cluster is as simple as going from 7-mode to 7-mode. For example of replicate a volume from one filer to another using a particular snapshot, and then perform a volume restored base on a snapshot on the destination filer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would also test other storage vendor that also provide the same snapshot technology and replication to see if it fit with your requirements and future plans.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Data replication is fast after the initial full copy. In case of a disaster, your data is protected and online at a dr site. There are work needed to be done to have the secondary site replace the primary site if the primary site is down.
