NetApp Snapshot Review

A very fast solution that is stable and doesn't use up disc space

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for backup and disaster recovery.

What is most valuable?

The solution is fast and it doesn't use any disc space at all. You can also take as many snapshots as you like. These are the solution's most valuable features.

What needs improvement?

The solution has already updated the one thing I didn't like about it. At the last update they maximized the count of Snapshots. It used to be 255, and now it's 1000. 

The price could be a bit lower.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for 15 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution has perfect stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is good. It's very easy to expand if you need to. We've been happy with the scalability offered. We have about 2000 users currently.

How are customer service and technical support?

I think that technical support is very helpful. If I have a problem, they contact me and help me solve it.

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

We didn't specifically use another solution. We use HPE systems in tandem with NetApp, so I wouldn't say that NetApp was replacing any other product.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very easy.

What about the implementation team?

I have handled the installation a few times by myself, so in most cases I don't need any help from the NetApp or any other support team.

What other advice do I have?

We're using the on-premises deployment model.

I would recommend the solution. I'd rate it nine out of ten.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
