"I would like to see more frequent updates at a faster pace.""There needs to be compatibility with upgraded applications. We don't want the system to be upgraded, but not have backwards compatible to existing applications.""I would like to see aggregate level encryption in the next release. This is critical.""I would like them to roll in global monitoring instead of having to buy another product for it.""The initial setup was a little complex, because we weren't very knowledgeable in the NetApp at the time. We were using a third-party, and they didn't have a lot of technical individuals, so it took a while to get it out.""We'd like to see improvement in the time to retrieve from the Cloud, whether it's on-prem to cloud and whether it's public or private cloud.""We don't have many issues related to the appliance itself. In terms of the OS, we do get some hiccups here and there.""The system is pretty stable but most of the ONTAP versions are not really stable. There have been multiple bugs in different ONTAP versions."

"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.""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.""The total cost, the pricing of it, has gone up quite a bit.""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.""Our TCO has increased by 15 to 18 percent.""Using NetApp, our total cost of ownership decreased by 17%."
