Hi Experts! Can anyone answer the below questions. This for NFS and CIFS. If EMC Open Replicator is a better option than RSYNC and EMCopy:

EMC Open Replicator
Capabilities:
Fast
Block level data copy
Copy open files
Synchronization of data between two different storage systems via
replication
Works well over the WAN
Can copy data from Local Celerra Disks and from storage mounted on
SAN/Symmetric?

Pre-requisites:
Does EMC have to perform transfer?
License?
Is it already installed on Symmetrix?
Same versions need to be installed at Source and Target?

"better" for what?

yes, open replicator comes integrated in multiprotocol NAS/SAN devices.

99% of applications like databases have own even more efficient replication mechanism, which keeps data integral on copy.

block-level copy is mostly overkill
