Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"The speed of the disks removed the bottleneck from our storage.""It helps automate our storage infrastructure.""Right now, we have an older StorageGRID. I like that we can grow it.""It improves our operational efficiency.""It has awesome scalability. We consume it with storage appliance nodes, then we just plug and play as we need more.""The ability to get to the StorageGRID from anywhere on my network. The solution is remote. You don't have to be at a physical location.""The implementation with NetApp went smoothly. It is a 'setup and forget' type of appliance.""It has enabled us to save money on storage costs. We removed our tape library."

More Qumulo Pros »

"The only real issue that we have run into is, when we are cloning, we cannot do a thin provision clone, it has to be a full clone.""It has its quirks here and there, but it is an older NetApp system.""We want to move towards Azure in the cloud. Right now, the system is all physical.""I would like to see them integrate more with the monitoring platforms. It is a bit difficult to get automated monitoring of the system.""The processes around installation and upgrade need improvement.""There was a small amount of confusion when working with StorageGRID and Active Directory for access. We had to do things three to four times resulting in our engineer troubleshooting a couple of things. The location of the menu, along with what is inside the menu: configurations, settings, etc., is not straightforward to users. Most users are Windows-based. So, when make logical changes to the menu which are not similar to Windows, users and administrators get confused.""The redundancy and reliability are great, but I also see room for improvement there. I would like to see more efficiency in the storage and dedupe/compression solutions."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The price is attractive.""We chose NetApp because of price and performance.""While we have been able to save money on storage costs, it could be better.""The licensing that the S3 service provides them from a FabricPool standpoint is more attractive than the licensing from AWS or Azure.""We save money on storage costs from this solution since it allows us to have a source of revenue from customers consuming the service.""Creating your own data stores, backups, or storage grids, helps eliminate all these costs of downloading all the data back after you downloaded to the cloud.""Buying the solution is expensive, but it saves you money down the line when you factor in the logistics of not having to buy tapes."
