NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP was well suited to begin our journey to cloud storage as a service.

We utilized NetApp remote Professional Services to assist in our deployment and also engaged support since the deployment for assistance regarding some networking concerns.

ScienceLogic SL1 and SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor (SRM) were the closest competitors to meeting our business objectives. Tivoli Storage Manager was not able to meet the initial requirements.

The latter provided a more positive and cohesive experience for our administrators and executives.
