Its data tiering helps keep storage costs under control

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case is to use NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP for unstructured data storage, both for Windows and Linux-based machines. We use both from an NAS functionality perspective, along with SMB and NFS file shares/exports, for storing unstructured data.

Pros and Cons

  • "With NetApp, you can integrate malware scanning or malware protection. This is something valuable that is not offered in SaaS solutions typically."
  • "If they could include clustering together multiple physical Cloud Volumes ONTAP devices as an option, that could be helpful."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a nine out of 10.

Cloud storage that is easy to setup and does what you need it to do

What is our primary use case?

We haven't released the Amazon S3 platform in a production environment. It's more for prototyping and POC so far. Normally we use it for the data dump. It's something similar to a data lake wherein we use it to obtain the data.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the storage."
  • "In the next release, I think that it would be good to have wizards that would update into specific applications, for example, a one-touch configuration in Pagemaker."

What other advice do I have?

You have to know specifically what it is being used for. One of the issues we face is that it is a developer's environment. In our country, the Philippines, people are often forced upon with brands such as Microsoft, Zadara, and even Oracle. Azure is something that is explored by developers. The onus is with the formal organization to get the people back in. I would rate this solution a fair eight out of ten. It does what I need it to do, but it is a developer's tool. It's not something that I have heard many people harp about.
