NetApp HCI Previous Solutions

We had a project that was overdue by about two years, that couldn't get the performance that it needed. The vendor couldn't spec what we needed. The most valuable feature would be the performance. We kept chasing it. If we give it a little more RAM it would perform and then it wouldn't. Based on the goals that they put forward we got to the point that it was just never going to get there. Instead of a six second cycle time, they had originally said that it needed one second but it was taking somewhere around 40. We got it down to 20 and eventually down to one but that was using hardware that was completely stripped down with no backup or anything. It was not something we wanted. I needed performance, flexibility, and simplicity. I'd lost a lot of my own department's resources to chasing performance. View full review »

In the first use case, we weren't getting the performance we needed from the old solution. In the second use case, I had an aging infrastructure that I knew I needed to replace. It was simply finding the correct solution to fill those needs. View full review »

We were not using a previous solution. We had a lot of feedback from our developers that they were trying to improve their DevOps operation. We looked into it, and it made sense. We adopted HCI, and so far, it has been a winner for us. View full review »

We're trying to move away from Fibre Channel as our primary storage method, so moving to the SolidFire HCI product is a step in that direction. View full review »

We were forced to move from our old product to the new product because of the lifecycle of the product. It expired after five or six years. Once we reached the end of the lifecycle, we had to move to another product. We went with NetApp based on the cost-effective solutions, technologies, and protocols. We had detailed discussions with architects and engineers and narrowed it down to the product we would go with. View full review »
