"It's elastic, so it scales with our demands. We can start small, then with the addition of customer loads, we can expand on-the-fly without the need to reprovision something."
"You can change it non-disruptively. You can increase the size and decrease the size online, which is a huge benefit compared to Azure disks. It just works seamlessly. You don't need to stop the instances."
"Its security and ease of use are most valuable."
"Since we have NetApp's internally, we use the SnapMirror predominantly for this process in the cloud which is beneficial."
"It's easy to use."
"The performance is good."
"Google Cloud Storage performs well and it's easy to use."
"The solution is easy to use."
"It is stable and scalable."
"It's user-friendly. We find it to be very easy to use."
"It's a stable enough solution."
"The most valuable features are stability and ease of use."
"Reserved Instances for Azure NetApp Files would improve more use cases, making them more valuable in Azure as the cost would be reduced."
"The main hurdle in promoting this solution is the price. Its price definitely requires an improvement. It is more expensive than other options, so customers go for a cheaper option."
"We were looking for a clustered solution that has over-complicated things because we had it in AWS, which is Amazon. There was a solution for clustered NetApp. That meant there would be two NetApps that were not clustered because there was no solution for a cluster. We would like there to be an HA cluster solution."
"I have a hunch that storage could be now the most expensive portion of our monthly bill. So I can imagine that, not this year, but next year we will be talking about looking deeper into ways how we can optimize the cost."
"I would prefer more support for alternative operating systems like DSD. The performance could be better because sometimes there are glitches. The price could be better."
"Could be improved from a storage perspective and a cost perspective."
"The solution should have two factor authentication."
"It would be helpful to offer more packages to increase the storage."
"There are inefficiencies with cache when the names are sequencing."
"They need more enhancements in the security features."
"The solution should improve its security and accountability."
"Google Cloud Storage could be improved by increasing the drive capacity."
