Not really - they solve different problems. Aptare is a long-term
reporting tool. It has almost no operational abilities. NOM, as its name
says, is for operations. It has a short-term view of the environment and
can do a lot of things that Aptare can't, like automatically up a down tape
drive, send out SNMP traps, etc.
NOM will never replace StorageConsole. However, it may be good enough for
people who don't care about the stuff that StorageConsole does that NOM
doesn't - and that list isn't short. NOM doesn't replace Veritas Backup
NOM is free and can co-exist with StorageConsole. Get NOM running in your
environment and see what it does for you. If you have no more reporting
needs, you're done. If you still have reporting needs, then look at the
various products from the different vendors and see which one solves your
Once we get our current resolved, I expect to be running both NOM and
StorageConsole for a while but I don't see how NOM will replace
StorageConsole either. I don't believe that NOM will allow me to have a
year or more of history to report on.
I've asked Aptare several times for reports on throughput by media server.
So far, they haven't delivered but I noticed in my brief time using NOM that
it has it (for the limited history that NOM held).
