I am looking for details as to how the capacity savings resulting from SnapVault backup can be determined in a customer environment.
The customer presently charges for tape backup based on a per GB written.
When SanpVault replaces the tape based approach the amount of data written significantly decreases.
What options are available to contrast the capacity delta between the 2 approaches?
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

I am a customer so I can not say. But make sure you allow for ASIS no longer working once the snapvault destination gets bigger than filer will allow as a ASIS volume. It is only 4Tb on a FAS3140 and we had to turn it off.
Hope it helps

Sorry ~ On the plus side Snapvault solved our long backup times on volumes with millions of small files. It also has a light load on the WAN so our backup destination is now off site. There is no compression on snapvault yet but should be coming as it is available on snapmirror.
