One thing that may need to improve is the software monitoring as it is based on a work station that is serviced to give support to the management. The manager may not be as fast on board the controller, so it needs something else to make it easier to manage. Managing the storage is, therefore, the only single point of failure.

I'm not too hands-on with it, so I don't have any major input on things it needs or things it should have. As long as its functionality is there for me to use, as somebody just to use the storage on it, that's all I need it for. I'm very simple. View full review »

We cannot share data in what is described as a trunk port, which is a disadvantage. Technical support is an area that needs improvement. In the next release, I would like to have staged access. The administrator would be able to connect to all of the storage and see real-time performance and issues, not only in the web interface. If the administrator is working on the console they should have access to all interfaced controllers. View full review »

The product might be improved with additional features for encryption. I think they do not do enough with encryption and that would make it more flexible and useful. I would also like to features that better support the product implementation with cloud solutions. If the problem we need to resolve is with cloud solutions, the product is not so easy compared to other products for easily integrating the cloud data. A cloud solution is important to implement.

We need a center related to NetApp in Egypt so that we can deal with them directly. If the pricing of equipment were more discounted in Egypt then it would be better. The implementation could be faster. View full review »

Off the top of my head, I can't think of any improvements other than perhaps better integration with some of our Cisco products. View full review »

The pricing could be cheaper and it should have documentation in more languages, specifically, Russian. They should develop faster building for the next release. View full review »

For us, in our country, the solution is a bit expensive. They should try to work on a better pricing model for our market. NetApp could improve the speed of the rebuilding rate. View full review »

Our file system sitting on a controller. They could improve overall scalability through performance. Denser capacity, which is doable, it is what the competition is doing. View full review »
