What is most valuable?

Being able to immediately look at my data. See the sizing, where I'm at on different virtual machines. Also, the most important thing, is IOPS. We… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We do a lot of databases within that app and we had a problem with a lot of our databases running slowly. Once we got OCI, we started seeing where… more»

What needs improvement?

Maybe a little bit more graphical interface. Right now - and this is going to sound really weird - but whatever the biggest server is, the one that… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

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… more»

What other advice do I have?

When I look at a vendor, generally I look to see if I feel like I'm being fed a lot of bull or are they really talking to me. I look for a vendor… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It houses our most important data for the whole Gulf of Mexico. As a whole, it works on the most critical data on NetApp right now. So, it's… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We like that it is one license and everything is bundled in together. We just made a major investment back in May of this year, so we'll have it… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

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… more»

What other advice do I have?

NetApp is a major player. You should look into them. Their service around the world is incredible along with their support. OCI is moving at light… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of OCI is the ability to correlate a lot of different data sources together. It's very difficult to get a picture from… more»

It's improved the organization in that, when people complained about an issue in the past, we had to go to all these different systems to look at… more»

What needs improvement?

I think there's still a piece of it that's external, the Java interface. I think that's all starting to get integrated into the whole HTML5, and… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

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… more»

What other advice do I have?

When we select a vendor, we look for somebody who is innovating in whatever their marketplace is, and that has a good forward thinking strategy… more»

What is most valuable?

It is the reporting functionality. We haven't gone to the extent where we are using the anomaly detection, but from a reporting perspective and single-pane-of-glass perspective, to… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Right now, it's our single pane of glass to monitor our entire infrastructure. It is the first point of troubleshooting where we go to see any anomaly, or for troubleshooting any… more»

What needs improvement?

It's the interop matrix. And if there was a chance to orchestrate on a heterogeneous structure using OCI, that would be a great start; or at least a plugin to each one of them, that… more»

What other advice do I have?

When selecting a vendor to work with, the most important criteria for us are support and its foothold in the market. If you're talking about storage arrays, it's the federation and… more»

What is most valuable?

I like the performance side the most. When we have an issue going on currently in the environment, the graphing of all the data helps pinpoint… more»

How has it helped my organization?

I'd say for the cDOT side of it, yes. We had a solution for 7-mode, but for cDOT we didn't really have anything yet, so it helped by making sure… more»

What needs improvement?

They've already got better stuff coming out. I don't know what else I could need, honestly. Before, they had the fiber channel for switches on… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

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… more»

What other advice do I have?

We do web.com, basically web hosting. I don't think this product is uniquely valuable in our industry. I think its pretty much good for anyone that… more»

What is most valuable?

Scalability: If you're from a large enterprise, it's easy for us to go into customer environments and pull the data out. It's very security-friendly. There's also the reporting suite… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Definitely, the single pane of glass for capacity management. Every customer has multiple vendors of storage, which allows us to bring those into a single report, deliver those, not… more»

What needs improvement?

The UI: They have been growing and changing. There's been some growing pains with that, but they are moving into the new HTML5 interface, which is fantastic. They are hitting on all… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

The instrumentation wasn't there, and that's what we deployed it for: storage, instrumentation, reporting, then accurate chargeback.

What is most valuable?

I've found the performance and capacity trends to be the most valuable features. The solution gives us usage reports. For example, if there's some kind of a peak, it can tell us… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It has definitely improved our organization. For example, we have, in total, 46 data centers and we're trying to make them into four or five data centers. OCI has helped us integrate… more»

What needs improvement?

We would like to see some kind of email mechanism to send email alerts with system updates. Also, perhaps OCI could send a graph that gives yearly or quarterly reports.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a ten because of its ability to integrate with multiple systems. This gives me better performance numbers and gives me more information about where my… more»

What is most valuable?

What I get out of it: the day-to-day monitoring. In my role as an administrator, I'm primarily responsible for operational functionality, so I… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Since we have to monitor multiple systems, it gives us a single pane of glass to look at all of our environments. Also, to compare and contrast, if… more»

Alerting: It's not complicated, but with so many groups involved in setting up something like an SNMP trap, or even an email alerting system, so… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

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… more»

What other advice do I have?

If you're going to do any reasonable-sized NetApp installation, you need to have it. You just can't manage it effectively without that level of… more»
