Overall Satisfaction with NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP

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.
  • Increased savings from on-prem data center costs.
  • Ease of integration into preexisting environment.
Cost was a huge factor and ease of integration and deployment led us to ultimately choose NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP for our tertiary backup design. For our lightweight applications, we chose NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP because we were able to kill two birds with one product and have the deployment efforts and time kept at a minimum which again helps saves cost.
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.

Did NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP again?

Yes

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.
