We currently only use NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP to offload and store snapshots for disaster recovery. It is used across all of our critical production data across all departments. NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP allows a simple way to offload storage requirements while having another tier of redundancy. We are a pretty small company but have some high-end needs in terms of redundancy and disaster recovery.
  • Simplicity
  • Flexibility
  • Cost savings
  • Additional cloud vendor support
  • Expanded capabilities
  • Lower pricing tiers for licensing
  • Free/included entry tier
It is well suited to store lower-tier data in the cloud to free up space on primary storage. For our use, it is really only currently viable for things like snapshots and backups. Other organizations may find it useful for secondary-tier archival storage as well. At this point, I don't really trust any cloud solution as primary storage for anything. This may change in the future, but for backups and such, it is a nice option.
Haven't had to use it.

NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP is used by the entire organization to manage storage volumes on AWS. We use NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP to provide a consistent, easy-to-manage, reliable, high-functioning, and scalable storage management solution across our AWS environments including support for the AWS Government Cloud.
  • Ease of allocation and management of storage in AWS
  • Less costly than the native storage management on AWS over 10Tb
  • Performance and scalability
  • Easy to setup and configure
  • More competitive pricing at lower volumes of storage
  • Make it possible to manage storage across hybrid and multiple cloud environments
NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP is best suited for larger storage volumes (>10Tb) where increased performance is critical within cloud environments. It provides easy-to-set-up, configure, and manage storage volumes with a familiar management interface if you have ONTAP in your data center storage environments. NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP can be a better solution than the native AWS storage management solutions because of the extensive storage management features available based on NetApp's years of expertise.
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.

NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP is being used by multiple customers and internal labs. This solution set was introduced as part of our go-to-market strategy for cloud storage as a service. We leveraged the configuration and monitoring aspects of the suite to provide visibility and insight into the storage environments and how they interact with business services. The major problem experienced by us and our customers was lack of insight.
  • Dynamic mapping of storage devices--topology mapping
  • Data tiering--compression and deduplication
  • Centralized management of all storage components
  • Tighter integration with third-party (non-storage) monitoring tools
  • CMDB classifications break down when integrating with ServiceNow
  • Migrating storage workloads from one cloud service provider to another
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.
Customer support was extremely knowledgable and friendly. When we had instances where we needed to escalate the issue to engineering, the transition was seamless. The service desk personnel did a proper job of triaging the issue and relayed their findings to engineering so we did not have to waste time repeating the same steps.

We are leveraging NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP for our cloud migration to AWS and also for Disaster Recovery purposes. NetApp [Cloud Volumes ONTAP] has been huge in helping us stand up a cloud-based DR environment for our Tier1 and Tier 2 applications. Since we leverage NetApp for our primary and secondary on-prem storage (block and file-based storage), [NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP] has been a nice supplement to allow us to stand up NetApp volumes in the cloud using a familiar interface and move storage workloads fairly seamlessly between on and off-prem. We have been very satisfied with what NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP has brought to our storage capabilities as we make our digital transformation and has helped us solve some of our data gravity issues.
  • Migrate on-prem storage volumes to AWS
  • Provides Disaster Recovery in the cloud options
  • NetApp [Cloud Volumes ONTAP] has been very stable so far!
  • Integration with Azure and GCP is behind compared to AWS
  • NetApp support can be "touch and go"
  • NetApp Documentation seems a bit lacking
I would highly recommend that companies take a look at NetApp [Cloud Volumes ONTAP] if they are looking to make the transition from on-prem to cloud-based storage or need the ability to move data between both. If your storage admins are familiar with regular OnTap - they should be able to pickup [Cloud Volumes ONTAP] administration pretty easily. Having the ability to migrate File Shares to the cloud while keeping the management of them under the same pane of glass has been very beneficial for us as well.
Technical Support from NetApp is usually pretty solid. Occasionally, we will get a level 1 tech that is a waste of time and then we have to ask to get the case escalated. Our Sales team is pretty attentive though and will follow up with us on new releases and features. I will say when a case gets escalated that they can usually provide a fix to our issue pretty quickly.

NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP is being used to run one of our internal applications and as a tertiary backup location. This product has allowed us to dramatically decrease our hardware footprint which has cut costs in many ways. The product also seamlessly deployed into our preexisting NetApp infrastructure which led to an easy and speedy deployment.
  • Integrates into major Cloud vendors.
  • Integrates with NetApp infrastructure.
  • See additional integration with other storage vendors.
  • Create single pane of view with integrated ONTAP systems.
NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP has been greatly suited for running some lightweight applications our company uses as well as serving as a tertiary target that we mirror off to our Cloud Volumes ONTAP within our Cloud provider. The transfer of data runs very smoothly and consistently which has been tested thoroughly with ingest/egress. I do not believe this product would serve well for our large proprietary applications due to the effort it would take for us to shift workloads to the Cloud at this time.
We utilized NetApp remote Professional Services to assist in our deployment and also engaged support since the deployment for assistance regarding some networking concerns. NetApp support was surprisingly quick to reply and very proactive in resolving our concerns much quicker than other support personnel from many of our other vendors we use. No complaints about NetApp support at this time.
