Perhaps it's my mistake, however, I thought it was a generic topic ("How an organization would make use of both DG and snapclones") It is not specific to Mr. Kaplan's article/presentation. My specific version of my database/SAN is definitely not applicable. However, Mr. Kaplan's related info can be found:,289142,sid98_gci1262946,00.html and

Apologies if this info was needed to help put the question into context.

If yourself and/or anyone else can shed some light on why or how an organization would effectively use snapcloning and DG simultaneously, I would appreciate it.
