NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP Review

Secure data replication between on-premises servers and public cloud


What is our primary use case?

Our primary use for this solution is disaster recovery. We protect our data by replicating using SnapMirror and storing it in a public cloud.

How has it helped my organization?

We use this solution's Snapshot copies as part of our data management and data protection strategy. We store these on serial volumes in a public cloud.

The inline encryption using SnapMirror has helped us to address concerns over data security in the cloud. Our enterprise data is private and is protected, but it is still available for our business.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features of this solution are SnapShot, FlexClone, and deduplication.

What needs improvement?

Only AWS and Azure public clouds are currently available from China, and I would like to see support for Aliyun (Alibaba Cloud).

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is very good for us because it is required for our operations. We have had no problems with it.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

ONTAP makes it easy to scale our infrastructure. It is important for us because our business has increased rapidly.

How was the initial setup?

I used cloud central to set up our Cloud Volumes.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
