All the goodness of OnTap - In the Cloud and On-premise

  • July 08, 2020
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Your investment in NetApp On-Tap is protected, and will allow you to seamlessly manage your on-premise CIFS/NFS volumes plus your adoption of new hyperscaler-hosted storage capacity.
What do you dislike?
Multiple management consoles are confusing.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
A phased migration of legacy NFS volumes to Azure storage, and aggressive HSM requirements.

Next Generation Storage

What do you like best?
CVO provides the feasibility of moving (snapmirror) the data from on-prem to cloud with an option maintaining the ONTAP familiarity and efficiency features. Not required to switch to new technology/platform to maintain the data.
What do you dislike?
Transit Gateway supports only 1500 MTU. In fact, the limitation is provided by AWS. Cross account access may be on network bottleneck.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
My data is in the cloud now along with utilizing the storage efficiency features, which is huge profit to the organization.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Try using CVO and get to know the benefits of CVO, such as ONTAP efficiency features and save the cost.
Move data to the cloud and still remain a storage engineer.

Excellent solution for handling volumes on AWS

  • May 22, 2020
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
This solution can be easily managed through a web-based portal, which makes it easy to manage and monitor my volumes.
What do you dislike?
Some advanced features can be implemented only with CLI (command-line interface) which can be a challenge for non-advanced users.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Currently, we are in the process of implementing this solution, but it is already possible to see benefits in terms of managing volumes from the Netapp ONTAP portal.

Cloud Volumes ONTAP has the rich data services NetApp customers need

  • May 14, 2020
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Support for SnapMirror, dedupe, and Flexclone
What do you dislike?
The performance of CVO leaves a lot to be desired, as does the lack of scale-out.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
DR/Backup to and within AWS is the primary use case. For customers who rely on SnapMirror and are reaping the benefits of NetApp snapshots and flexclones, CVO is unparalleled in its efficiency both operationally and financially.

cvo has provided a vaiable soluion for DR offerings.

  • April 28, 2020
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
The most beneficial aspect of CVO is the ability to easily scale and tailor instances to the needs of the environment. Adding disks, changing aggregates and balancing the cluster is all available with just a few clicks.
What do you dislike?
Trying to manage a large environment from cloud manager is difficult. The footprint for cloud manager has to be dramatically increased in order to recognize any benefit from trying to manage on prem clusters through cloud manager.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Our instance of CVO was constructed to serve as a DR storage solution for our C2 and C3 applications. The ability to quickly scale and adjust aggregates is beneficial both in terms of time and cost.

NetApp Cloud Volumes OnTap allows us storage flexibility

  • April 28, 2020
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Cloud Volumes OnTap allows us great flexibility to provide storage for our applications.
We can add new volumes in minutes. We can clone volumes to make current production data available for application development and testing in just a few minutes.
What do you dislike?
Using Cloud Manager to manage the Cloud Volumes can be somewhat difficult. It requires getting used to a new way of managing the volumes.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We use Cloud Volumes for application NAS storage. This allows multiple servers in our AWS cloud to access the same storage volume. And by utilizing clones, the cloned volumes can be used for application testing without having to make a complete separate copy of the production data.
