NetApp StorageGRID Review

It helps automate our storage infrastructure, but it does have its quirks

What is our primary use case?

For the amount of data storage that our engineers use, I need a big data storage grid.

We use IoT, but I am unable to provide examples because of our classified environment.

Our NetApp system administrators say that it runs well. It does have its quirks here and there, but it is an older NetApp system.

How has it helped my organization?

It helps automate our storage infrastructure and improve our operational efficiency.

What is most valuable?

With the amount of data storage that we use, it is helpful.

What needs improvement?

We want to move towards Azure in the cloud. Right now, the system is all physical.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Right now, we have an older StorageGRID. I like that we can grow it.

We are looking to go to Microsoft Azure on the cloud because we want to grow and expand the amount of storage data that we have. We have a good amount, but with the number of projects that we have going on, we could use more.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is good. 

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

We had to go with something bigger because of the amount of projects that we had going on and the increase in storage data.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward.

What was our ROI?

While we have been able to save money on storage costs, it could be better.

What other advice do I have?

It is definitely a great investment for larger companies.
