The ability to get to the StorageGRID from anywhere on my network. The solution is remote. You don't have to be at a physical location.
The implementation with NetApp went smoothly. It is a 'setup and forget' type of appliance.
It has enabled us to save money on storage costs. We removed our tape library.
It has improved our operational efficiency through time consumption and logistics by 40 to 50 percent. Everything that had to do with our legacy tape solution has been improved and is now more efficient.

NetApp StorageGRID Cons

Jamil Alatrash
Lead Infrastructure Engineer at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
There was a small amount of confusion when working with StorageGRID and Active Directory for access. We had to do things three to four times resulting in our engineer troubleshooting a couple of things. The location of the menu, along with what is inside the menu: configurations, settings, etc., is not straightforward to users. Most users are Windows-based. So, when make logical changes to the menu which are not similar to Windows, users and administrators get confused.
The redundancy and reliability are great, but I also see room for improvement there. I would like to see more efficiency in the storage and dedupe/compression solutions.
