NetApp Cloud Backup Review

​We're getting rid of our tape libraries, so this is an alternative to that

What is most valuable?

We want to archive off-site, because it's cheaper.

We are using end-to-end encryption because we're putting out content in the cloud, so that's really important to us.

How has it helped my organization?

We are getting rid of our tape libraries, so this is an alternative to that. We don't have to have 100s and 1000s of tapes.

We are going into the cloud, so this helps us go into the cloud. It also has better security for backup data.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have doing a PoC on it, so we're not in production. We're testing it right now for approximately 30 days.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's pretty stable. I've tested it. It seems to be pretty stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We haven't tested it.

How is customer service and technical support?

We haven't used the tech support yet as we're working with an account team to do the testing.

How was the initial setup?

It's pretty straightforward. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We are testing NetApp because I am looking to save cost for our backups.

We are looking at Pure Storage. They have a different solution. That is something we are looking at pretty closely.

What other advice do I have?

We are using AWS for cloud-based backup and have file and block storage.

Most important criteria when selecting a vendor:

  • Simplicity of the solution
  • Support has to be really good.
  • The company history pedigree: I want to choose a company that I can rely on for the next ten years.
