Hitachi Vantara

  • [Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) is] well suited for needs requiring a highly secure, multi-tenant on-premise object store.
  • Exceeds expectations with respect to object level attributes and permissions
  • Has excellent S3/HS3 REST API feature set
  • Situations which require versioning and proven Immutability (certified by Governments)
- Expensive to use for general file storage publishing where meta data, compliance, retention, versioning are unnecessary.

NetApp

The NetApp StorageGRID solution fits in perfectly with what our company was trying to accomplish. Our goal was to free up our expensive storage flash (SSD) capacity for our critical applications to allow for growth and added performance capabilities. I do not believe this solution would be greatly suited for those without a Cloud solution or secondary site/system to tier data.

Cons

Hitachi Vantara

  • Cost structure is by capacity and is expensive
  • Some access settings are mutually exclusive for performance (REST vs. CIFS)
  • QoS by Tenant requires use of external ADC (Hitachi suggested and sold us Pulse Secure) and their support on this product offering is not up to their normally high standard

NetApp

  • Initial network design can be tedious
  • Provide more out-of-the-box ILM policies
  • Include professional services time with each purchase

      NetApp

      NetApp Support was able to quickly resolve a networking issue during the deployment of the NetApp StorageGRID system, which we, unfortunately, could not figure out on our own. Not only did Support engage quickly, but they also provided guidance on how to properly troubleshoot various issues such as the one we encountered and also provided excellent documentation.

      Alternatives Considered

      Hitachi Vantara

      My company has close ties with Hitachi. NetApp chargeback was more per Gig and for cost saving purposes, we had to choose HCP.

      NetApp

      We chose NetApp StorageGRID because we were not looking for a true backup solution but wanted the features to included a DR centric ideology. The IBM Cloud Backup solution was purely backup focused and did not fit the requirements for our needs. NetApp StorageGRID checked all of our boxes in regards to cost, use case, and ease of manageability.

      • ROI has been positive but it does raise questions at renewal time in terms of cost/GB vs other 2nd tier storage types
