Storage Manager at Mekorot water company
The cost of licensing for our company is really not that much. We are a big company but we only use Fibre Channel SAN (Storage Area Network) storage. We don't use the others. So actually we did not need to use all of the licenses. So, the cost is really average for us. View full review »

System Engineer at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees
If you start narrowing down NetApp versus price point, then comparing it to the feature set and take away all the bloat that other companies will try to add on, there is no other option. It comes down to just NetApp. View full review »

Senior Engineer at Alliant Credit Union
It pays to get the Cadillac. That's what we call ours. Don't undersize it. We undersized our first one and ended up having to get rid of it, then buying a new one. We lost money in the process. We should have paid for more than what we needed at the beginning. View full review »
Systems Architect at a aerospace/defense firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
The solution has helped us reduce the overall cost of storage by doing an OPEX agreement with NetApp, we are paying based on utilization. Instead of fronting 30 petabytes worth of storage, we are paying for what we're using. View full review »
Architect at a retailer with 10,001+ employees
Our cost per IOP is three to four dollars, but we have a hybrid solution. Therefore, we have SSD and spinning disk running together. In the past, you didn't have to buy separate products. They were mostly included with the purchase. In the end, it's more expensive to buy it separate than together. If you are going to need it, one package at the beginning is cheaper. I don't like this nickel-and-diming. I like an all in one solution. View full review »

Manikanta Vemula
SAN Engineer at American Express
With other vendors, we need to buy a separate license for a third-party storage, but with NetApp, you don't need to buy a license, as it will come up with the storage. View full review »

There are specific workloads where some vendors provide better value, but in general, NetApp has done a far better on price than other vendors. View full review »
Luis Henriquez
Hewlett Packard Enterprise Solution Architect at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
There are two consumption methods: pay as you go and subscription. Pay as you go is purchased directly from your AWS account and is charged either on an hourly basis or annually. It is a little expensive but worth it. Purchasing this solution through AWS Marketplace was secure. We purchased it there because we are AWS customers. View full review »
