Score 10 out of 10
We are using NetApp StorageGRID as a data tiering solution to assist in decreasing data storage costs throughout our whole organization. We purchased this solution to wisely leverage our cheaper Cloud storage cold tier for cold data while utilizing our Flash SSD storage for our critical (hot) data within the environment.
- Allows for very granular data tiering policies
- Integrates seamlessly with our Cloud solution
- Easy deployment
- Easy to manage and adapt to a changing environment
- Initial network design can be tedious
- Provide more out-of-the-box ILM policies
- Include professional services time with each purchase
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.

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.
