Difference between SnapProtect (SP) and NetApp Syncsort Integrated Backup (NSB)?

A basic rule of thumb...

If the data you are protecting resides on NetApp storage, then SnapProtect (Simpana) might be a good fit.

If the data you are protecting does NOT reside on NetApp storage (and you want to protect it on NetApp storage), then NSB might be a good fit.
