NetApp Cloud Insights

The main benefit of NetApp Cloud Insights is that it's agentless. It just collects information from the SNMP protocol. We had NetApp ONTAP installed and we paired with VMware. The biggest challenge for any company is to find the bottleneck on the Edge of the technologies, like between VMware and NetApp. Both products have great reporting and monitoring tools, but whenever it comes to finding issues on the Edge between those products, you can hardly identify whether it's a storage issue or whether it's a virtualization issue.

Sensu

  • Well suited for raising pagers when you have count-based metrics.
  • Well suited for threshold-based metrics.
  • Not well suited for tracking events over the day, since graphs and other visualizations are missing.

Before using Cloud Insights, we quickly resolved all the issues we had by talking with the support team. The support team is eager to assist and technically well equipped. They quickly understood what we needed and helped us during the setup and the first use period so that we could adapt easily.

Sensu's customer support was always willing to work with us but never really seemed to learn much from our experiences. I think they get a lot of customers with DevOps IT teams that are willing to put in a lot of elbow grease to get the most of Sensu's architecture.However, despite explaining my continued disappointment with their documentation and the overall flow of the product, I never got much more than a "sorry" and a notice that their documentation was open source if I wanted to contribute to it.The problem, of course, is that you can't document what you don't understand. I'm a former technical writer, so I know that better than most.

NetApp Cloud Insights

Cloud Insights is a very compact service compared to others. This is very compatible with the service selection policy suitable for the purpose. So you really pay for the part of the product you need, which increases your financial efficiency and lowers start-up costs (time to learn the service and start using the service, etc.).

Sensu

Have used New Relic and Sematext Cloud for APM and for tracking over days and visualizing the issues. But those are very expensive as compared to Sensu.

Return on Investment

NetApp Cloud Insights

  • We are better at capacity management
  • We have increased storage IO performance by spotting hotspots and making adjustments
  • We have been able to reclaim storage more effectively

Sensu

  • Standing up the Sensu Go server took very little effort.
  • Setting up and maintaining the build processes and deployment logic for Sensu assets and checks was somewhat exhausting and resulted in lower adoption among non-DevOps IT.
  • The limited web interface resulted in lower adoption among non-DevOps IT.
