"I like it. When it is up and running, it does the job."
"I have found all the features useful in NetApp FAS Series."
"The most valuable feature for us is the combining of HA and SnapMirror."
"Can use both SAN and NAS at the same time."
"I like the unified management feature because sometimes you end up running a single protocol on the entire system."
"NetApp FAS is highly stable and reliable, especially under a heavy load. That is what I like most about the NetApp."
"The solution has tiers inside which means we do not only need to use SSDs."
"For us, the greatest aspect of the solution is the fact that it just runs. It is amazingly resilient. That's very important to us, because we are basically, with some exceptions, have a 24/7 operation."
"I like its storage capacity, quick access to the data, speed, and overall storage management."
"I would like to see NetApp add incident support."
"NetApp FAS Series could improve by being more secure."
"You always need a huge amount of hardware to fulfill a given setup. Its deployment can be complex, especially if you go MetroCluster."
"The one aspect of the solution that's negative for us is also more unique to us due to the fact that we did a MetroCluster. The tiebreaker piece that does the monitoring of the two different locations, and determines if one is not talking to the network normally (or if it's truly down) is a little difficult. It feels like it was not designed from the beginning to fit well into the other pieces. It feels like it was thrown in at the last minute and it is not smooth."
"The user interface could be improved."
"Its operating system is very cumbersome. However, after you set it up, it runs pretty smoothly. Its file system is not very dynamic. It is very static."
"If our customer needs a high-performance storage solution then we don't recommend this product."
"For long term partnership in Myanmar, the local warehouse should be built in Myanmar that's something I'd like to see. We have some issues with supply so there is sometimes a delay in getting the hardware."
"The main thing Oracle can improve is the cost. It would be better if Oracle opened up the system to enable integration with other vendors. Whether it's the database, application server, or storage appliance, they should make it easy to integrate them. They need to open up more to ensure that it can work in any environment and IT ecosystem."
