Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It has saved a lot of time. Because in the older, conventional hardware system, they need to raise a ticket to go to storage engineering, then storage engineering would increased the size. Now, it's dynamic. You don't have to do anything. This improved the time by more than 50 percent.""The most valuable feature of this solution is its flexibility.""The critical features of this solution are SnapMirror for replication, data protection, and SnapLock.""Using NetApp Files got us out of a really difficult situation quickly, effectively, and at a reasonable cost.""For us, with Azure NetApp Files the ease of use has been big. We have an operations organization where ease of use is key, especially when we're starting to go offshore with that [responsibility] as well.""It's elastic, so it scales with our demands. We can start small, then with the addition of customer loads, we can expand on-the-fly without the need to reprovision something.""You can change it non-disruptively. You can increase the size and decrease the size online, which is a huge benefit compared to Azure disks. It just works seamlessly. You don't need to stop the instances.""Since we have NetApp's internally, we use the SnapMirror predominantly for this process in the cloud which is beneficial."

"It's a scalable product.""The interface is good.""Replication and performance tuning are valuable features."

Cons
"We would like for the files which are coming in that we can version them. So, if a file is accidentally deleted, there should have a recycle bin option where we can go back, and at least once, clean it up.""This solution would be improved with more innovation.""We would like to have backup functionality built-in so that we don't run into the issue where the replication process makes a copy of the corrupted data.""I would like to see multi-zone redundancy so that I don't have to worry about it. I just back up my data to that one SMB share and I know that it's replicated to a different region.""The speed of Azure NetApp Files, from what we PoC'ed, has been tolerable. We've had some challenges with it so far, being in a PoC, but after we [overcame] those challenges, it became tolerable.""I have a hunch that storage could be now the most expensive portion of our monthly bill. So I can imagine that, not this year, but next year we will be talking about looking deeper into ways how we can optimize the cost.""Reserved Instances for Azure NetApp Files would improve more use cases, making them more valuable in Azure as the cost would be reduced.""We were looking for a clustered solution that has over-complicated things because we had it in AWS, which is Amazon. There was a solution for clustered NetApp. That meant there would be two NetApps that were not clustered because there was no solution for a cluster. We would like there to be an HA cluster solution."

"They should base their strategy according to the country and the regulations there, and focus more on the on-premises deployment.""It's already fast, but still, they could improve the speed.""Deployment is overly complex and could be streamlined."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The solution’s combination of the ease of use, simplicity, and reduction in IT management versus the cost has helped a lot. It is very fast to deploy. It's very easy to maintain. You don't have to do a lot in the cloud to maintain this thing, so it gives good performance. It's fast to deploy, easy to maintain, and it gives a better performance. These are the most basic three criteria for any application. This saves cost because the manpower you need to deploy is going down. You're getting better performance and not buying new resources. You have resources available in the cloud. It's just a couple of clicks, then you're good to go.""The performance has improved by about 30 percent.""The licensing fees for this solution vary, ranging from a single shelf to a full suite.""Our pricing has not been determined because we are still waiting on additional features.""NetApp is a premium offering, so it's not a cheap product, but it is well-priced. It combines a couple of properties which customers like us are willing to pay. Could it be cheaper? Yes, but if you combine fully supported, fully managed, easily provisioned, scalable, and quick all in one product, it's a good selling point. You can ask a lot of money for all these. If you have a use case like we do, it's a perfect match. It's like the Porsche of storage solutions in the cloud. It is totally worth the cost.""It is expensive in small environments, which could be better. The reason is the four terabyte minimum. A one terabyte minimum would be better.""We are currently on a pay-as-you-go model with the storage that we use."
