Cons
"The UI, the User Interface, needs to be improved. It's not as clean or modern as it could be."

More NetApp SnapCenter Cons »

"A web console would be great because nowadays a lot of products are web-based and you can access the console from various environments. So I would recommend bringing this feature in the next solution.""Doesn't include disaster recovery.""It could be improved in the area of reporting and ease-of-use.""They can improve the reporting component. The reports aren't user-friendly at all. You have to download them to Excel to get statistics.""If you keep it for too long and the catalog gets really big, the application tends to move slowly.""The integration with SaaS applications like Office 365 needs to be improved.""Something within the software itself isn't quite right. There may be a bug or glitch. It will work fine for weeks and then all of a sudden it just tanks.""The pricing of the solution is a bit high."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"It is a mid-range solution on the pricing scale.""Its price is reasonable.""This product is priced for smaller customers.""There is an evaluation license available to test this solution.""It has a good price-value ratio. Its price-value ratio is better than Veeam.""The pricing can be improved.""Licensing depends on the part of the backup you're using. If you have SQL backup, then you must have a SQL license. If you have normal data backup, you would require a license for that.""It is not an expensive product."
