Quotes From Members Comparing IntelliFlash vs. NetApp All Flash FAS

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
It's very fast. We were seeing read latencies of less than one millisecond. It is robust.EasyTier/hotcaching: Valuable because it allows greater performance than standard SAS disksIt provides a combination of all the protocols that you need, without losing deduplication and compression.Data Compression: Up to 80% space reduction in the databaseHigh performance and ease-of-management are the most valuable features.

This solution makes everything a lot faster. The time to move data around, boot and migrate VMs is much faster.When we move to all-flash, our response times were reduced to microseconds.It has improved performance for our enterprise applications, data analytics, and VMs. These improvements are a result of all-flash, throughput, reliability, compression, etc.There are many reports accessing the applications. We receive them very quickly. We used to wait a long time for them. Now, you just need to wait a moment.If you need a replacement part, they will provide it.My favorite part is all-flash solid drives. All of my applications are running on an all-flash array. Before, we used to get too many severity tickets on performance, but as soon as we migrated everything to an all-flash array, our critical applications are at top performance.NetApp AFF is based on Unix, which makes it secure.The file-based protocol supports NFS and CIFS.

Cons
It's somewhat scalable, but maybe not so much as some of the competition.We had just one small stability problem with power flapping and it did not start up again automatically. We had to access service ports and manually restart the storage processors.In the proxy section you can’t choose a user account and password, so it is not allowed at the moment to go out, if customer has such constellation.It only keeps one hour of real-time data without the ability to do deep analysis of each element.Snapshots are not as easy to access as on a NetApp device.

I need faster Fibre Channel over Ethernet. They top out at 10GBs today and I would like that to go to 40 or 100.One of the features that I am looking for, which is already in the works, is to be able to take my code and automatically move it to the cloud.We would like to have more behavioral reporting.To be more competitive in the industry, they can develop deduplication, compression, and smarter features in the same array instead of all-flash.There are some bugs with the solution which need to be fixed.Technical support is a little lackluster. Some of the issues that we've had were opening up tickets. They seem to be routed in the wrong direction or it takes one or two days to get a call back for simple tasks.Going forward, I would like improvement in the response latencies, capacity size, cache, and controller size.On the roadmap, NetApp is improving the solution's storage efficiency, compression algorithms to achieve more space savings, and the management interfaces. We are looking forward to these feature additions in the next release.

Pricing and Cost Advice
I recommend the full bundle software in order to have all the functionality. It is more expensive to purchase it one by one.

Our TCO has increased by 15 to 18 percent.Using NetApp, our total cost of ownership decreased by 17%.Our TCO decreased significantly because we were paying maintenance on nine different arrays throughout the country. We've condensed those down to three arrays, and our maintenance fees from the IBM product dropped by over a half million dollars a year, saving us $500,000 USD.The total cost, the pricing of it, has gone up quite a bit.Disk level encryption is already in the solution, but it is very costly. Its pricing should come down.From an application standpoint, we have seen a lot of return investment on the speeds and responsiveness of the actual storage.Our total cost of ownership (TCO) has decreased by 40 percent.I am able to store two times more data than what I'm purchasing, which affects the way funds are being utilized.
