Dell EMC VPLEX

This works in two fold. First it creates a copy of the data in two locations, protecting the data from a SAN or a NAS failure. Second, it provides a data point in a second location that can be used as storage for a stretched virtual cluster, giving a virtual stack a means to continue operation.

NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP

NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP was well suited to begin our journey to cloud storage as a service. The ease and intuitiveness of the product to enable our administrators to design, configure, and deploy the storage in a hybrid cloud environment was instrumental to the success and the early adoption of the service.

NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP 8.5
Based on 6 answers
I have used NetApp solutions at various companies in the data center over the past 10+ years. NetApp always provides exceptional customer support with excellent support during setup/configuration and implementation. No professional services or consulting needed to get up and running quickly. Ongoing support and maintenance is also excellent--not that we need to use it very often due to the excellent reliability of NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP.

Alternatives Considered

Dell EMC VPLEX

When this was purchased there was no other product that could achieve what we were looking for, now this feature is pretty standard with storage platforms. It is a costly solution not just the hardware but the infrastructure to support it. It requires a connection between sites with at least 3 gigabytes per second and sub 5 millisecond latency and a network infrastructure capable of handling that

NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP

Cost was a huge factor and ease of integration and deployment led us to ultimately choose NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP for our tertiary backup design. For our lightweight applications, we chose NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP because we were able to kill two birds with one product and have the deployment efforts and time kept at a minimum which again helps saves cost.
