NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP Review

Limited scalability. Provides fast, persistent storage in the cloud.

How has it helped my organization?

It just gives us the capability to get cloud resources.

The primary use case for ONTAP Cloud is getting data into the cloud.

We are using the product for our future planning in the following:

  • Disaster recovery in the cloud
  • Backup in the cloud
  • Development in the cloud.

What is most valuable?

  • SnapMirror
  • SnapVault
  • Fast, persistent storage in the cloud

What needs improvement?

Just more scale out. It can only do two nodes. One SVM, which would be okay as long as I can scale easily.

It needs to be matured with more capabilities.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

So far, so good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's limited. We're trying to figure out better methods as we need to scale out more.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have built-in support. It is good. They are an onsite resource.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We needed persistent storage in the cloud for platforms, and there's really not options right now in AWS or Azure.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also use Avere Gateways. That's pretty much it.

I was the one who evaluated and approved the use of ONTAP Cloud.

What other advice do I have?

It functions and I think in the future it will be a reasonable method of getting NFS and the cloud.

The most important factor that lead us to use OTC versus a native cloud storage solution was having enough fast capabilities and social capabilities. It is extremely important that our storage enable us to render and integrate on-premise systems with cloud services. Cloud integration is also very important for us in our selection of a future on-premise storage system.

We use AWS cloud service.

Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: We are 95% on NetApp on-premise. We wanted compatibility with their on-premise solutions.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?

**Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: Partner.
