and the projects roll on… We are currently evaluating storage solutions from EMC and NetApp. On the EMC side we are looking at a Celerra NS-120 with a Data Domain DD 660 as a VTL backup target. On the NetApp side it is a FAS3140 with potentially a FAS2040 as a VTL / replication target. The pricing looks like it will fall relatively in-line and we would certainly appreciate any thoughts on these respective disk-based backup targets. We know Data Domain is purpose built for backup but it seems the FAS can also supply many of the same functions. Any real world experience with using these platforms for VTL?
