NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP Review

It is a stable product that is easy to use


What is our primary use case?

We use it for file storage.

It is mainly being used with our Windows environment.

What is most valuable?

  • Ease of file storage.
  • Ease of use.

What needs improvement?

The data tiering needs improvement. E.g., moving hard data to faster disks.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is pretty stable. We do not put too much stress on it (about 45 percent).

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is very good. Our environment is 25TBs.

How is customer service and technical support?

I have not used NetApp's technical support.

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

Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace was good, but it was a test system, not a real purchase. 

We went through the AWS Marketplace because we were testing the product and have not evaluated the pricing yet.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend NetApp because it is a stable product.

The AWS and on-premise versions of the product are about the same. 

It is currently not being used in the AWS environment. It is just being tested. The integration and configuration seemed okay.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
