Consider this FUD attack "Exposed"
Val said: "There is no Symantec (or any other popular archiving ISV for that matter) KB article warning of potential risks with archiving to NetApp SnapLock. Will there every be? Who knows, but I like NetApp's odds due to one key difference - SIMPLICITY."
Continuing the pattern of not doing any research and hoping no one will notice I see.
Lets look at Symantec KBase article 316205.
"Data loss may occur when two or more Vault Store Partitions are located on the same physical location..."
"The following scenarios do not perform a check and will allow the same location to be created:
When a NetApp is used, this check is not performed."
Note: This does NOT affect an EMC Centera device in terms of data loss."
You've been on the wrong side of this since the very first moment Val. I told you as much in the first comment on your post where after paragraphs of FUD you still couldn't identify the problem with Enterprise Vault not archiving the data to Centera, even though it was all in the advisory if you understood what you were reading. I explained it in what? Two sentences?
What I lack in word count I make up for with accuracy and hands on experience.
But one must ask is this what goes on in the NetApp CTO Office? They trot out partner's tech advisories in public, read them incorrectly and when the partner publicly says they're wrong they then claim a Google search is proof enough as in the absence of verifiable fact they now have nothing else to support the opinion they're pushing?
Regardless of that, none of the verifiable facts (Verifiable by a third party you dragged into this) support your initial or current opinions Val leaving us with this ongoing FUD campaign of yours.
The industry equivalent of Quixote tilting at windmills.
There is no data integrity issue with Centera, you made it up. Now having caused a public incident with a partner you appear to have moved on to embarrassing your employer.
