I usually run a POC for our customers.
The majority of my clients wanted to establish a MetroCluster operation and wanted their business to be stable using multiple data centers. That is why they wanted storage that was going to provide a place for their virtual machines.
The primary use case of this solution for databases.
We use this solution as storage for our application server. It is used in the virtualized environment in our data center. It hosts our critical applications such as databases and our critical application workload.
We are a tech services company and this is one of the solutions that we provide for our clients. We also use this ourselves. Personally, we use this as a unified SAN solution. Our clients use it for CCTV and media applications. For example, one of our clients uses this to handle video data for game development. Depending on the customer and their requirements, we will configure an all-flash storage solution for them.
I normally work with customers. I'm a senior consultant so I'm responsible for giving information to customers and I make assessments for them about what technology is the best for them to use.
The primary use case of this solution is for banking services. It is one of three of our production systems in which we store all of our customer's data. Thirty percent of our production traffic for our company is stored with this solution. The deployment model used is a private cloud.
We depend on this product for our storage needs. We have a private-cloud deployment. We use more than the All-Flash Arrays on site. We have a hybrid model with all types of storage including flash, SATA disks, and SSD.
We use the on-prem deployment model of this solution. Our primary use case of this solution is for better speed for the database.
We use NetApp for storage.
Our company used this solution primarily for databases. The customer who currently uses it mainly uses it for the data store. He uses it as a single silo with the storage it offers, so he implements the project and uses what he needs to. The solution is not that flexible that you can change the workload so it depends on what you designed before. So you have to compute for your load or for your use before you do the setup.
