Ummmm...yah. Seen it already. It's called Commvault Simpana.So, previously you told us that Protection Manager was the panacea for managing our backups, recoveries and DR. What about SnapManager suite - should we now do away with that? What do we now tell our customers who've we've sold on SnapManager benefits? For our customers who already purchased the "complete bundle" do they now have to fork out additional money for Snapprotect? You can see where I'm going with this.

@Forbsy - I think it's fair to say that you are asking for some clarity from NetApp around our Backup & Restore strategy. Let me know if I have misunderstood your point.

SnapProtect (CommVault OEM) allows NetApp to offer an enterprise B&R solution which includes integration into our native data protection technologies like Snapshots, SnapMirror, & SnapVault for storage, application, virtual infrastructure, backup, and compliance administrators.

Our existing set of B&R applications tend to only address the needs of each the administrative groups. SnapProtect allows our customers to deliver the capacity, bandwidth, and time savings of our IDP technologies in a manner that is coordinated across multiple management domains and can be extended with our partners DR automation tools.

I want to apologize here, as I meant to address these discussion in a blog post or two in June and unfortunately got pulled away. I'll get back on this shortly.

Thanks for sharing your feedback.
