NetApp Private Storage Valuable Features

CTO at Dataposit Ltd
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 now on ONTAP 9. The company has not been bought and sold so the product has been stable under management. They have had a vision and a strategy and they have stuck to it. That is very good for me because once I got certified on the product I didn't lose the certification. I just had to recertify once when they made the move from 7-mode to cluster ONTAP. It has just been smooth sailing for me from there. Once you understand the NetApp protocol, you can configure it for a small box or you can configure it for the largest box imaginable. The protocol or the method has remained the same and is really backward compatible and that is one of the beauties of NetApps. View full review »

Mirroring and Snapsnots. Snapshots are very robust. Snapsnots will always work and you can dive into them and receive information. There are a lot of other storage companies that have this feature, but we feel that the NetApp Snapshot feature is the best. View full review »
