NetApp OnCommand Insight Review

It's centralized and pretty versatile

What is most valuable?

  • The tracking of utilization of our storage systems.
  • Seeing the throughput.

These are the most important metrics for having a working operating system and working storage system.

How has it helped my organization?

It's centralized. It's got a lot of data in there. We can utilize the data that's in there and the output to other systems to run scripts off of it. Therefore, it's pretty versatile.

What needs improvement?

Any increase in loading times, or anything like that, would be useful for us. It's slow, the user interface could be improved a little bit. You have to click through a lot of things in order to be able to find what you want. Also, the dashboards aren't very user-friendly.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've had Insight for two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We haven't had any issues yet.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Very scalable, as long as you have the licenses. You just have to buy more licenses for more storage. As long as you have the money, you can support it.

How is customer service and technical support?

We don't really use technical support for Insight. We haven't needed it.

How was the initial setup?

I wasn't involved in the initial setup.

What other advice do I have?

It already uses restful API, so it's on top of things.
