NetApp
This is great for safe, secure, storage. It's fast and reliable, especially since we use scalable Google cloud instances. I do not recommend this for test, low-end, or non-production instances. The cost is too high for test environments, and there is no added benefit instead of using slower storage. I also don't recommend using this if you are new to storage solutions.

We were originally using Zerto for our data backup and redundancy. It was working great but was very expensive to run to only provide redundancy. We needed to move into faster live storage with redundancy and came across NetApp Cloud Volumes and have never looked back. NetApp Cloud Volumes solved this for us by being more affordable and more reliable, while working as live storage.
