Benefits of using Snap Creator
Contributors Download PDF of this page
The Snap Creator Framework provides a simple and flexible software framework that addresses various storage requirements.
Snap Creator is used in the following contexts to address various storage requirements:
As a single interface for managing environments that have multiple operating systems, hypervisors, applications, and databases.
For backup, recovery, and cloning of applications or databases that do not have a SnapManager offering; for example, IBM DB2, MaxDB, or SAP HANA.
As a centralized interface for backup and monitoring if SnapManager for Microsoft Exchange Server and SnapManager for Microsoft SQL Server have been set up in your environment.
When an application or database (such as Oracle) that has a SnapManager offering is used, but the host environment does not meet Interoperability Matrix (IMT) or similar requirements.
For replacing custom scripts for storage actions, thus offering a consistent method to create Snapshot copies, perform SnapVault updates or SnapMirror updates, clone volumes or LUNs, and call custom scripts anywhere through the Snap Creator workflow.
