Anonymous UserPrincipal Architect Infrastructure Solutions at a recruiting/HR firm
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It results in more efficient storage utilization, cutting capital expenditure in half."
"The deduplication feature in this product is amazing."
"The speed and deduplication ratio are two of the most valuable features of the solution."
"The implementation is straightforward."
"The interface is very user-friendly."
"This is a user-friendly solution."
"The initial setup is one of the most user-friendly B2B user solutions. It's good, it's easy. Deployment usually takes less than one day. You only need one person for deployment and maintenance."
"From a centralized system, I can manage the interface, the backup policies, and the status of the database."
"This solution provides us with easy management and great vendor support."
"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."
"The product could be improved with better support for data protection."
"This product would be improved with the inclusion of more features to security or WORM."
"The appliance doesn't have the global deduplication, it has StoreOnce deduplication. It does not deduplicate across the appliance, it will deduplicate in one particular store. With the global deduplication, I could store more data."
"The solution would be improved if it could also be used as a data store for VMware."
"The solution's pricing could be improved."
"I would like to see an emphasis placed on making data deduplication and compression more powerful."
"The solution should continue to refine its integration capabilities. I also see they are starting to use cloud integration as well, which is good, but they should do more to integrate with it."
"The repository should have an extension to connect to the cloud and deposit the backups."
"Dedicated storage efficiency accelerators could improve the overall performance of the system."
"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."
"There are costs for additional storage and space."
"Price-wise, it comes with a high price tag when compared to other products."
"The cost of HPE StoreOnce is very expensive."
"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."
