What is most valuable?

One of the things I like the most about NetApps is that it is very easy to connect to the cloud and it is cloud-ready. I also really love the fact that they have stuck to their storage operating system for as long as I've been working with them. I started with them using ONTAP 7 and I think we are… more »

What needs improvement?

I think where NetApp may have missed the boat and created challenges for themselves is that the product is probably one of the most complicated boxes to configure now.

What needs improvement?

The one thing I've noticed with NetApp when you buy hardware and you can use it for a while and then you have to get new hardware. I wish the hardware would last a little bit longer.

Dedupe and compression improvements always help.

What other advice do I have?

I would say compare with whatever is out there. I think that NetApp makes a quality product. I would rate it at a nine out of ten.
