Azure NetApp Files Review

Useful SnapMirror feature, good technical support , and reliable

What is our primary use case?

We are using Azure NetApps Files for our solution.

What is most valuable?

Since we have NetApp's internally, we use the SnapMirror predominantly for this process in the cloud which is beneficial.

What needs improvement?

We were looking for a clustered solution that has over-complicated things because we had it in AWS, which is Amazon. There was a solution for clustered NetApp. That meant there would be two NetApps that were not clustered because there was no solution for a cluster. We would like there to be an HA cluster solution.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using version 9.9 of this solution for approximately one month.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable and reliable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have not gone any further than what we are doing with the solution to see whether expansion comes in the future. We know NetApps reasonably well and scalability normally is not an issue. We are in the cloud, and I am not sure how this will translate scalability-wise.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is very good.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We are currently on a pay-as-you-go model with the storage that we use.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to others is to make sure this solution is right for what they are going to use it for.

I rate Azure NetApp Files a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?
