It offers the ability to scale on demand which is important to the burst capability of scaling up and scaling down.
It has reduced our hypervisor footprints by around 20%.

It's highly scalable and we love the fact that we can add storage independently or compute and we don't have to buy an entire storage solution when we have to increase capacity. That's the good thing about HCI. You can pick and choose if you want to compute or storage. It's great.
It has not reduced our hypervisor footprint yet, but that's the hope.

From an infrastructure standpoint, we need to have more cohesiveness between our teams. We set that out, realizing that's a concern and/or issue. We solved that, which helped us to deploy in a more efficient manner. Therefore, we can get the capacity for the customer in a more efficient manner in a better time frame.

The ability of this solution to scale on-demand is great. It is easy to do. If you need another compute and another storage node, they're really easy to put into play and add into the original cluster that you have.

The ability to scale on demand is very helpful. It's customizable and we can expand if we get low on storage or compute. I love the fact that we can actually provision the LUN out to a separate vendor as well. We can also provide that storage to a different operating system.

The ability to automate the provision of the machines makes it faster and it's easier for the user to request.

NetApp HCI's ability to scale on demand is a differentiator in the marketplace. The ability to scale storage and computer together or separately is one of the differentiators for the customers.

The ability of this solution to scale on demand is good because with the organization growing, our data size is growing as far as our computer server is growing. The scalability will probably be the biggest factor in enhancing our environment.
