Buying from the lowest bidder

EMC makes a good product, or compilation of products put together and repackaged into a good product. That being said, I definitely would not tout a 99.8% uptime without offisite replication and RPO/RTO clearly defined. Also, it looks like a true local D2D was not involved, other than some simple COW snapshots which only solve a few problems at best.

Stepping back though, this article writes a pretty good story. EMC probably undercut everyone on price, cut out the D2D and replication portion of the solution, and somebody chose to "save money" instead of buying the right solution. Case closed.

Data retention, compliance and the storage budget

storagedock

do it right the first time

With a written retention policy, and a simple email archive solution, you will use less storage than you ever have. To top it all off, your email databases will work and backup faster with this setup.
