Has many new added features and it can control ingress and egress

What is our primary use case?

We are moving to using a lot of NFS (Network File System). I normally work with VMware on the private cloud and then I use NetApp on NFS protocol with 10G connectivity. Mainly I use it in two ways. I use a lot of hybrid flash storage. Hybrid meaning that you have a little bit of SSD (Solid State Drive) and then at the back, you can use either SATA (Serial ATA [Advanced Technology Attachment]) or SAS (Serial Attached SCSI [Small Computer System Interface]) disk. So I use the hybrid with SAS and SSD, or I just use all SAS.

Pros and Cons

  • NetApp has really added a lot of features over the years to improve the product and performance. They can do things now like control ingress. They can control egress.
  • There may actually be so many features that the end-user gets lost in the volume.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for those who are considering using NetApps Private Storage is to get yourself trained on the solution. It is worth it because the architecture does not change very often and certification and skills will be valid for a long time. I would say they should get a reseller — of course, they have to pay that person to do the implementation — and then after about six months, take training to enhance their knowledge of the product. When you complete the training you will be good for a long time after that. The NetApp company is stable. They are not going to sell out or be bought. They have…

Enables us to add storage none disruptively and has great uptime

What is our primary use case?

It back ends some ESXi through NFS shares. I think our database people use it some as well and we have SnapMirror. We've done snapshots for a long time and I found pretty good value there. SnapMirror, we just started using probably about six months ago. SnapMirror replaced MDMP and it's a lot faster. I mean we get backups off-site way quicker than we did with MDMP and MDMP is going to go away in about, I'd say a couple of months. I would say it's probably impactful of probably somewhere in the 1,000 to 5,000 users.

Pros and Cons

  • Very stable and very scalable.
  • The hardware does not last as long as it could with new software.

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.
