What is most valuable?

Assisting backups.

What needs improvement?

We would like to see more granular repording and reporting in bigger sets available in SnapCenter. 

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Our ROBOs has told me that stability is good. However, we have been hit by bugs.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have not looked yet at scalability because we are using single instances right now.

How is customer service and technical support?

We have experience some difficulties with our current support. We are engaging in engineering level support because some of our problems are more technical.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We were having some data corruption problems in our biggest environments, so we started looking into it NetApp solutions, that's why we went for SnapCenter (after doing a PoC).

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

We used NetApp Professional Services. Our experience with them was good. We have a long standing relationship with them.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked Dell EMC and NetApp. One of the features in our requirements was going from a SAN environment to a NAS. These types of features are why we went with NetApp.
