We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution's most valuable feature is the duplication."
"This solution allows me to better and more easily manage user data without impacting my primary storage."
"The most valuable feature for us is the combining of HA and SnapMirror."
"The most important features are SnapVault, Snapshots, and SnapMirror."
"For us, the greatest aspect of the solution is the fact that it just runs. It is amazingly resilient. That's very important to us, because we are basically, with some exceptions, have a 24/7 operation."
"The most valuable feature is SnapMirror."
"Data consolidation and visualization."
"You can use different protocols at the same time. Monitoring is also very easy in NetApp FAS Series. There is a free tool for monitoring."
"The most valuable features are the NAS features and NetApp's excellent support."
"I like the unified management feature because sometimes you end up running a single protocol on the entire system."
"When I configure the StoreEasy in a complex environment I have problems finding compatibility with all the software."
"We need some monitoring tools and it would be helpful if they were included."
"Currently, the newest release is not HCI friendly."
"Technical support needs to be improved, as there are no longer partners in our country."
"The one aspect of the solution that's negative for us is also more unique to us due to the fact that we did a MetroCluster. The tiebreaker piece that does the monitoring of the two different locations, and determines if one is not talking to the network normally (or if it's truly down) is a little difficult. It feels like it was not designed from the beginning to fit well into the other pieces. It feels like it was thrown in at the last minute and it is not smooth."
"If our customer needs a high-performance storage solution then we don't recommend this product."
"The solution could do more than just data."
"Its licensing cost can be improved."
"There is no NetApp infrastructure set up here in Greece."
"Interfacing with the cloud environment could be better. I want to be able to move some cloud volume and integrate it seamlessly with my home on-premise storage. Sometimes I have issues with port permissions. NetApp probably needs to improve more on the integration side from on-premise to the cloud."
"This is an economical solution for the company and I am satisfied with the pricing."
"I've sold arrays for as little $20,000 USD and as high as $300,000 USD."
"It is expensive."
"I don't recall the price, but in general, pricing can always be better."
"It's not cheap, but at the same time, it's also inexpensive. It's somewhere in between."
"We purchased it for four years, and it wasn't expensive. It was reasonable. Every company has a different agreement with NetApp. We got everything we wanted with all the bells and whistles and all the features and functionalities."
