Storage Architect at US Navy
Our sales guy that came in, a wonderful guy, told us OCI was the greatest thing since sliced bread. He has an SE, he and I just hit it off. It was really his interpretation of OCI that sold us on it. It was the SE more so than the sales guy. It was more or less just a one-on-one with that guy that made me understand that it's not a lot of bull, that it was the real deal. So that's what sold us on it. View full review »

High Performance Compute at a energy/utilities company with 1,001-5,000 employees
In 2001, we switched from LSI Logic. We were sort of building storage on a cheap at the time. Anyway, a guy who used to work here suggested NetApp, though it was certainly more per gig or megabyte at the time. You pay a little bit more but you get enterprise storage. You don't have anybody upset that they lost something nor do you have downtime. In the old days, you could reboot something in middle of the day and everybody would be sort of be okay. Now, they freak out. So, downtime is not acceptable anymore. Whatever it costs, we're going to have to pay for it. View full review »

Lead Systems Administrator at a retailer with 1,001-5,000 employees
We had used some solutions in the past, SolarWinds, just looking at vSphere monitoring, and we didn't have any one solution that pulled it all together. While SolarWinds is pretty good, the polling intervals are quite long, so if you want to get to a real fine-grained time period, where you want to look at a problem and have all these different systems, we really need something that would have like BI capabilities to get more data into it.

Brian Bargo
Storage Engineer at Web.Com
We initially invested in OCI to improve our reporting in our environment because we wanted to be able to predict purchases in the future. So that was what the tool seemed to be good for. We chose NetApp because we have something like 50 NetApps, so it seemed like the right way to go. View full review »

Storage And Backup Tools Manager at a tech services company
The instrumentation wasn't there, and that's what we deployed it for: storage, instrumentation, reporting, then accurate chargeback. View full review »
StorageA7774
Storage Administrator with 1,001-5,000 employees
We chose NetApp because we look for a vendor who can provide value-added support, not just break and fix, but best practices, advice, roadmap information, information about other case studies from other customers in similar situations, and the ability to really help us (not just install the product), but to use the product and extract the maximum value out of it. Also, they really know our environment. View full review »

No. Before, we were just using the native tools on ONTAP. We needed to have a way to look at our performance statistics. View full review »
Ken S
Storage Services Manager at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
We had individual siloed applications, utilities. 3PAR had one and VMAX had one, NetApp had one, so we had DFM etc. Each of those had each feature and function. Not as detailed as OCI. At this point in time we are trying to consolidate our storage infrastructure. So this is a pretty good way to do it because they cross multi platforms and the like. View full review »

Eduardo Stephan
Storage Analyst at BCCSS
No, this is the first one. We needed to get a better view of our environment. Now we have a tube for collecting data and showing the manager the results. We had NetApp on in our environment so we know it. View full review »

This is part of a migration, of migrating storage from EMC to NetApp. Once we migrated some data to NetApp storage we deployed OnCommand, the application as well, at the same time. View full review »
