Rated 5 out of 5 by reviewer1284903 from Good stability and scalability, easy setup, and valuable compare feature What is our primary use case? I'm responsible for replicating the data from one source to another. It is constantly running, and we do nothing other than looking at monitoring reports. Once it is established, it is pretty much hands-off. We are not using its latest version. We are slow to migrate to the new version. We wait until there is a need to upgrade, and we are generally one or two versions behind. How has it helped my organization? It has improved the way our organization functions. What is most valuable? The compare feature is the most valuable piece of it. What needs improvement? The documentation can be laid out better to make it easier to find things, and I really wish there was built-in support for changing passwords. Some features don't work as advertised for the platform/repository database, and HVR is not always the fastest at getting results. For how long have I used the solution? I have been using this solution for three years. What do I think about the stability of the solution? We like its stability. What do I think about the scalability of the solution? We like its scalability. How are customer service and technical support? They are adequate. Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch? I have used GoldenGate replication previously. How was the initial setup? Installing the software is really straightforward. Getting your replication stream working is a little bit more complicated, but it is not overly complicated. What about the implementation team? Its deployment was done in-house. It took weeks. There are two people to manage it and make sure that it is working. They are part of the data team or the infrastructure team making sure that we're building our analytic pipeline. What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing? I don't have the exact information, but I know it is high, and it is on a yearly basis. There is no additional cost for what we're doing. We're always open to doing things cheaper, so we might potentially implement a different solution. Which other solutions did I evaluate? We looked at Informatica, but one of the sources that we had was only supported with HVR. That's why we went with HVR. What other advice do I have? I would rate HVR an eight out of ten. Which deployment model are you using for this solution? On-premises Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by reviewer1551972 from User-friendly solution that can handle heavy traffic What is our primary use case? I mainly use HVR Software for replication and migration. How has it helped my organization? HVR Software is an asynchronous replication solution. Its arrays are powerful enough to handle migrations even when the replication is happening in the background, without causing any trouble with the ongoing traffic. What is most valuable? HVR Software's most valuable features are that it's simple to use and allows us to use the command line to quickly complete the entire universal replicative setup. What needs improvement? In the next release, I'd like to see an automated version of HVR with a script that can be run on a management server where we can provide all the information within the script, or the script can prompt the user to enter the storage area and volume details so that with just a few clicks, the solution will be deployed automatically in the background. For how long have I used the solution? I've been using HVR Software for fourteen months. What do I think about the stability of the solution? HVR Software is stable. What do I think about the scalability of the solution? HVR Software is scalable. How are customer service and support? HVR Software's technical support could be improved. Whenever we log a case, the response that we get from the support is a bit delayed. How would you rate customer service and support? Positive How was the initial setup? The initial setup was straightforward because we had all the required documentation. What about the implementation team? We used an in-house team. What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing? I've heard that the license for HVR is a bit costly compared to its competitors, but since it's reliable and efficient, I think the customer shouldn't be bothered about the cost. What other advice do I have? I would rate HVR Software as ten out of ten. Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Rated 5 out of 5 by reviewer1537896 from Provides a lot of flexibility and seems stable What is our primary use case? We are doing a proof of concept, and we are still building the operating model. We are using it for moving data from one source to another. We will be using HVR with Snowflake. What is most valuable? It is not like a traditional ETL, but it gives quite a lot of flexibility. What needs improvement? It should have a few more monitoring functionalities. It should also support integration with more data sources. Currently, it supports Snowflake, AWS, and Google Cloud, but it can also support SAP integration. They can make it more flexible. For how long have I used the solution? I have been using this solution for around six months. What do I think about the stability of the solution? It seems to be stable, but we have not yet used it in production. It is still in development. What do I think about the scalability of the solution? We are a large enterprise, but it also seems suitable for small and medium enterprises. How are customer service and support? We have not contacted their support. How was the initial setup? We did not do any deployment at all. We started around six months back, and we are just in the early stages of doing a proof of concept. Which other solutions did I evaluate? We didn't evaluate other options. What other advice do I have? Based on our experience so far, I would rate it an eight out of ten. We will get to know more about how it is in a couple of months. Which deployment model are you using for this solution? Public Cloud Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
