NetApp HCI Stability

Steve Lamesey
Vice President at Hardwood International Corp
My impressions of the stability so far are really good. The customers that we install for, seem to really like it. They've taken to it very quickly, have become very dependent on it, and are scaling out their environment. View full review »

Once the product is up and running with the build configured correctly, the product will run itself. It is highly stable. View full review »

We haven't had many issues with stability. We're still flexibly moving nodes left and right, so it's been stable to almost everything we need to do. View full review »

Because of the repeated failure of the motherboard that we experienced, we have doubts about the stability of the solution, but I'm sure that in the near future it will be a great, reliable solution for us. View full review »

We did have some stability issues. However, we got it pretty early on. We did have a bunch of purple screens, but after we updated it, I believe those went away and it was a lot more stable. We have not had it up for a few months now, but it did get more stable. View full review »

Stability is one of the things we absolutely have to have, because if the HCI is down, our assembly lines are down, and that could potentially lead to our customer being down. If our customer is down, that's $10,000 a minute; and any time the assembly line is down, that could potentially lead to overtime. We don't get to charge one and a half times for something we billed just because we happened to build it on overtime. Any technology we bring in, has to be built for what I call "three in the morning." It can't be built for whenever everybody's in the plant, everybody can watch it, and everybody can babysit. It has to be built for three a.m. when we've got a skeletal staff there, and we just have to know that it's just running. As I stand here, right now, I don't have to check my phone, I don't have to check my email. I know it's running. Period. View full review »

The stability has been good so far. It's worked just fine. Uptime: no problems. No failures at this point. It's still running, so that's a good thing. View full review »

It is a lifesaver, definitely an A plus stability-wise. All around, it's a great solution. View full review »

The stability of the solution has been pretty good so far. Alerts have not been too noisy. We do like the Active IQ and the ability to look at statistics on the system. View full review »

We do not have a stable system, yet. The vCenter has been crashing. View full review »

It's pretty stable because you can independently add and remove storage nodes and our compute nodes. It's very resilient and scalable. That's what we look for. View full review »

Director at Citrus Consulting
The stability is fantastic. That's why I've stuck with it. In my mind, it's one of the best storage products. The software around it also has got to be the best across all different storage environments. View full review »

We're going to the 10.3 now and we haven't lost any data, which is a good thing. Some of the API calls were causing time-outs, but that's been fixed in the version we're moving to, so it's becoming more and more stable all the time. View full review »
