I'm working as pre-sales for NetApp. I help the NetApp team to test the POC for the customer. My company is a distributor of NetApp in Indonesia. We might not use the latest version of the solution. We use the AFF Series and the C Series. I'd rate the solution at an eight out of ten. We're mostly quite satisfied with the solution so far.

When you are dealing with a virtual machine or on-premise, one of the in-demand storage is NetApp. Veeam is also compatible with NetApp, you will not have any concern, it is a total package. I rate NetApp EF-Series All Flash Arrays a nine out of ten.

I will continue to use this solution. I think that the technology is still the latest one. If there is more development storage technology in the future with other venders then I will consider using another solution. Depending on the business needs, there are variables to consider with the expense. It's still worth purchasing as the support is good and also the performance is very good. Some of the engineers are still considering changing to a cheaper solution but they worry that the support and maintenance will not be as good. I would recommend this solution. From my experience, this is still the best product available. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

For anyone who has critical workloads like Oracle databases or DB2, NetApp All-Flash Arrays will suit their needs, as long as it fits within their budget. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

On a scale of 1 - 10, I'd give NetApp EF-Series All Flash a 5. It's a low rating because as I mentioned, they have to improve their software. NetApp is an array that is made on the software. Their problems are on the software and the controlling of the storage where they lack segmentation and federation. Fragmentation, in particular, is a problem that could be improved for big customers since big data is so important for them.

I would rate it a nine out of ten. In order to make it a ten, they should make the price cheaper. I would recommend it. It is very stable, fast, and offers good support. It fits our needs. We don't have issues with it. If you need a stable solution, you should choose NetApp. We have two NetApp solutions in my company and we don't have problems with either one of them.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten. It has various small flaws like not being very scalable, difficult installation, lacking good encryption and better cloud support. However, we use it for what it is currently designed to do. From one to ten, I would say it earns a seven for the scalability and a seven for the stability. These things hurt the other things it does well.

The more you can make it integrate into one solution, the better it is. It is less of a headache than having to configure three or four different things. One solution and one GUI is just the way to go. I would rate the solution about seven out of ten. It would be closer to ten if it supported integration with other products, not just Cisco.

I will rate this solution a nine out of ten because it has limited storage. Before you take on a project, you must know how much storage you need, but once you focus on the system, it will give you great performance, reliability and ease of use.
