AWS Storage Gateway

The AWS Storage Gateway is well suited if you want a quick way to off load your backups to the cloud to eliminate the need of a offsite storage location for physical tapes. The ROI is quite good from that perspective since you can utilize Glacier storage for the virtual tapes. The AWS Storage Gateway is not well suited if data sets being backed up is very large. The lack of de-duplication will add time to your backup. It will also increase the egress charges

NetApp ONTAP System Manager

ONTAP System Manager is feature rich and all inclusive. It can work with multiple storage protocols and for various functionalities. It will replace your File Servers and your SAN and put them into one storage appliance. NFS, iSCSI, Fibre Channel, NVMe are all options. Snapshots and Offsite replication (Snapmirror) are all great. I can't think of a scenario where a NetApp wouldn't be a good fit.

Pros

AWS Storage Gateway

  • It is good for "forever" solutions for backing up data.
  • It is good for S3 attachments to traditional servers.
  • It is relatively easy to manage, once configured.

NetApp ONTAP System Manager

  • System Manager is extremely good at resizing volumes, changing snapshot policies and making day-to-day changes.
  • The Dashboard and the Hardware and Diagnostics tabs are a great window into the health of your filer and Cluster. You can immediately see any issues like volumes that are nearly full or errors in the event logs.

Cons

AWS Storage Gateway

  • Ease of finding useful helpful tips on using AWS
  • Dumbing down of the technical jargon on the site
  • Short sharp to the point step videos - answering some common questions
  • Remembering not everyone is an IT person - could be more user friendly

NetApp ONTAP System Manager

  • Not necessarily a dislike of OnCommand per se but I do dislike that you have to still use different flavors of this tool to get a holistic view of every aspect of your NetApp - System Manager, Performance Manager, Unified Manager etc
  • The initial process to connect to a filer probably could do with a little more friendly documentation as the format for filer name (or IP) and whether and SNMP string is required etc is not clear.
  • The ability for more complete search capability within the logs (so therefore not having to extract them to work with them) would be an advantage for the timely resolution of faults.

Support is great. Our account managers and system engineers regularly contact us and check in on us. Provide free training on various topics. Our team is readily available to answer any questions. Support tickets are generated automatically if anything goes wrong such as a disk going bad and a new one is sent out immediately. Very happy with support.

Alternatives Considered

AWS Storage Gateway

I find it great to work with AWS Storage Gateway platform due to its flexibility and the nature of its performance in our company. The cost of operating this product has been suitable and fitted our budgeting plans. Data safety is enhanced from end-to-end encryption and in case of any attacks we are notified to take possible actions. It monitors effectively all the storage processes that run across our applications and offers solutions to any bottleneck that affects data storage performance.

NetApp ONTAP System Manager

I've used NetApp systems for the last 12 years. The only alternative I have used is the old OnCommand system. This is a drastic improvement over what was available in the past. The ability to use this software from anywhere inside your network is huge. If you were to combine this with VPN access you could easily monitor and configure your NetApp from anywhere in the world

Return on Investment

AWS Storage Gateway

  • Storage gateway really helps with the migration of our image store with a large volume of data from on-premise servers to S3.

NetApp ONTAP System Manager

  • Previously were were running with just locally attached storage across all of our estate. With this tool we are not able to simplify the management of storage saving on resource usage across our Ops teams allowing us to focus on "more important" tasks.
