Cons
The price needs to be improved.It's necessary to install NetApp simulator to avoid complications.In the next release, I would like to see Data reduction included and WAN optimization.We have different families of storage, such as the E-Series and Flash systems, but NetApp cannot be set up between them.The new coursework models need to be improved. The bandwidth monitoring could also be better.In the next release, I would like to get an active IP number solution.The user interface could be simplified. They might want to have fewer options on it, to make it less complicated. There are a lot of options we never use ourselves. They're often very specialized and don't apply to us.There is probably some limitations when it comes to the scalability of the solution.

NetApp needs to take a look at their pricing in comparison to the competition and make the appropriate change to attract more customers and gain in market share.The solution could include more databases and make it accessible to the DBAs. The automation process should be run in a way where it could be run from the database itself.The company could update their products more regularly.The price could be a bit lower.I think the automation needs some improvement.The solution needs to ensure it has higher availability or business continuity.Although support is good, the global support is lacking depending on location.Not a perfect ten because there is one point off to give it room for improvement.

As far as their licensing costs, the licensing is paid on a yearly basis. The organization pays for the licensing based on the software and the capacity that they choose.It's not too expensive.The price of this solution is fair.If there is a way to save more on the number of snapshots, it should be included in the next release.
