Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"If you have a fair amount of experience with NetApp, you can work on it very easily.""The most valuable feature is the ease of file storage.""If anything happens, their technical support will come onsite and fix it.""ONTAP has been very stable for us, specifically in the cloud environment. It allows us to have high availability as well as standalone systems if that's what we want within our specific workloads. Also, on-premise has been a very stable environment. We have very few outages and when we do, we work with support to get systems back online in a timely manner.""The ability for our users to restore data from the Snapshots is very valuable.""Its functionality and technical support are adequate to help prevent failure due to errors.""SnapMirror helps mirror metadata and data volumes between endpoints in a data fabric.""The FlexClones make all the management easier for us."

"So far, we have had no problems at all, as it has been very stable. It is working well.""vCloud Director works and makes my life easier. Its self-service capabilities allow us to give resources to our customers. They can spin up as many or as few machines as they like, and it works.""It has helped us with user segmentation and QA.""We use it to replicate VMs for our customers from one data center to another data center.""vCloud Director requires less knowledge to get into in the first place. Therefore, when we bring in new members of staff, we can always give them the customer experience straightaway, and they can pick it up quite easily.""The self-service portal is the most valuable. We are acting as a service provider, so our customers can take care of their virtual data centers with the self-service portal. Therefore, we don't need staff for it.""We consider it intuitive and user-friendly. It offers a variety of functions for the customer to control the networking, virtual workloads, disk snapshots, and all of vSphere's core features.""Their technical support is great. We had some difficult cases and they were able to solve them in a timely manner."

Cons
"When it comes to support provided by NetApp, they have room for improvement. Every time we go through their support, we end up answering the same routine questions.""The data tiering needs improvement. E.g., moving hard data to faster disks.""I would like to have more management tools. They are difficult to work with, so I would like them to be a bit more user-friendly.""The key feature, that we'd like to see in that is the ability to sync between regions within the AWS and Azure regions. We could use the cloud sync service, but we'd really like that native functionality within the cloud volume service.""I would like to see them improve the perspective of start and search in the panels. This would allow for better visualization of the contents that are captured in the tool.""The navigation on some of the configuration parameters is a bit cumbersome, making the learning curve on functions somewhat steep.""The only issue we had lately was that outside our VPC we could not reach the virtual IP, the floating IP. I heard that they have fixed that...""Scale-up and scale-out could be improved. It would be interesting to have multiple HA pairs on one cluster, for example, or to increase the single instances more, from a performance perspective. It would be good to get more performance out of a single HA pair."

"One drawback to using CloudEndure is that the default is to give one small, lightweight server, which is created in the cloud."

"There didn't seem to be any type of integrated path on how to do the initial setup. There seemed to be different bits of paperwork or instructions available from various places. We always had to go looking for what to do next.""If you have a deployed environment and lose it, you can't easily deploy it back with vCloud Director. Because of this reason, we don't have the data protection, disaster recovery, and container features.""If you use it for a lot of customers, it is too heavy for this solution.""We have had very minor problems with it when we've been upgrading.""It could be more stable. We have had issues with multiple different versions.""vCloud Director could use the vCenter database to store information. This way, we don't end up in a situation where we have things going out of sync.""Initially, the setup was complex.""I would like to see mode accessory recovery and integration with SD-WAN."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace was good, but it was a test system, not a real purchase.""We purchased the product directly from NetApp.""The deal with the seller was acceptable; the pricing is reasonable.""The AWS consumer-based pricing model makes it easy for developers to use their credit cards to spin up virtual servers immediately.""Compared to other storage vendors, NetApp, is not always able to compete with their pricing. Yet, we acknowledge the ease of use ONTAP brings with the AWS integration.""They allow a special price if you are working closely with them. Since we have a lot of NetApp systems, we got some kind of discount. That's something they do for other customers, not just for us. The price was fair. In addition to the licensing fees, you're paying Amazon for your usage...""The standard pricing is online. Pricing depends. If you're using the PayGo model, then it's just the normal costs on the Microsoft page. If you're using Bring Your Own License, which is what we're doing, then you get with your sales contact at NetApp and start figuring out what price is the best, in the end, for your company.""In addition to the standard licensing fees, there are fees for Azure, the VMs themselves and for data transfer."

Every month, we take on more customers.""The solution is costly, efficient, and robust versus alternative solutions.""It runs our company in the millions of rand every month.""This is an expensive solution."
