SnapCreator vs Snapmanager for Oracle

Dear all,

our customers want's to use snapshot technology for SAP Oracle DBs.

How is the current NetApp policy regarding SnapCreator and Snapmanager?  Is it a must to use SnapManager or are

we allowed to use SnapCreator in combinantion with SAP / Oracle DBs?

Thanks.
Best Regards,

Andreas

You can certainly use Snap Creator for SAP/Oracle and many customers do this for various reasons. The snapmanager provides more features around recovery and cloning and has a backint integration where SC does not.

Hi Keith,

thanks for your response.

I heard in the past something like "NetApp doesn't allow SnapCreator for Dbs where they offer an SnapManager product"...   good to hear that this is not the case.

BR,

Andreas
