The graphical interface is still heavy and slow. Needs more improvement in this area.I have experienced slow responses several times, if the ticket has only been opened in portal.I would like it to be an IP as our network is mainly IP-based.FC and ATTO bridges are still needed for cross datacenter replication.Stability could be improved.Cleaning up false positives on alerts. We get a lot of those.ZAPI is kind of difficult to use. You know, it's SOAP-like, it's not really SOAP. I would like to see it more of a REST-based JSON, instead of XML.Additional performance, additional data efficiencies, that's what everybody wants right now.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
I understand the cost is less than many other storages of same/similar performance benchmark.If you go for Replication, Vault, and NAS, please ensure that the license has been ordered at the very beginning. However, licenses can been added or modified without rebooting the system at any time.ATTO bridges add to the total cost of the system.NetApp is getting too expensive.It is pretty expensive compared to other solutions. I would give it a seven or eight out of 10 in price (where 10 is expensive) compared to similar solutions.The entry point for potential customers, who are looking at coming onboard for flash systems, it may be a bit expensive. It would be good if the price comes down.Other vendors may come in at a cheaper price point, but you will pay in the end with management costs and downtime.Obviously depending on the price point, NetApp is obviously a little more expensive than your generic Dell SAN solution or whatever.
