Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It is good for giving an overview of the systems and for tracking long-term trends. It is handy for root cause analysis, e.g. it can eliminate whether storage is the cause of an issue.""Its ability to quickly inventory our resources, figure out interdependencies across them, and assemble a topology of your environment is brilliant. There is a price associated with it. Whenever you target a NetApp environment, it is included in the price but whenever you want to add different vendors, like VMware and Cisco, the price greatly spikes. Inventorization helps us a lot to visualize the environment.""Among the most valuable features are the queries and reporting that allow us to look at the utilization of resources, at how well the storage is performing, and to report on which resources are being used by which business units. We can track usage across the entire environment, across applications, business units, cost centers, etc.""Cloud Secure is definitely the most valuable feature and being able to see file level activity. It gives real-time alerting on possible ransomware attacks and provides file security review. It helps us to see if something abnormal is happening on the system before it's too late."

"The product is reasonably priced.""The CloudEndure feature is most valuable because it is user friendly and very simple."

"The most valuable features are the UI, the interface, and accessibility.""I have found the solution scales well.""The solution is reliable and performs well.""We can run it on self-hosted systems, and we are happy with the stability of vCloud Director.""Good features of extensibility, which allows integration of other services.""There are various options for scaling and that flexibility is a good option.""The initial installation and setup are very quick.""The most valuable feature of vCloud Director is the scaling architecture that they have built."

Cons
"In a perfect world we would have something built, right out-of-the-box, that can identify what we call "noise," and reduce the amount of data. You're presented with so much data when you first start the data collectors. For example, it brings back a lot of change rates that happen just because of standard computing, like profile changes and that sort of thing. Being able to identify things like that and categorize them and strip it down—and it probably can do that, I just haven't gotten there yet—would be very beneficial.""Their pricing model needs improvement.""There is room for improving the creating and managing or modifying of reports. That is still a difficult task to do and requires knowledge beyond the storage itself. I would love to see reporting improved so that we can create reports by dragging and dropping pieces into a report form and publish a report that way.""When I did need support because I was having problems with the solution, the first or the second line just didn't understand it. They were providing this only on a software as a service basis. So, they were asking all the wrong questions."

"I do not see any improvements required for the CloudEndure.""We would like to have a disaster recovery feature included in this solution."

More CloudEndure Live Migration Cons →

"In the next release, we would like to see improvements with the pricing. It could be reduced.""Lacks integration with the hyperscalers.""This solution could improve by adding root cause analysis.""Cloud Director has room for improvement in many areas. One critical thing that comes to mind is the hyperscalers. They could be more seamlessly integrated into the hybrid cloud.""It would be nice to see some new features in respect of the GUI.""The product could use a billing feature so we can automate billing for clients.""There are too many errors, it could be more stable.""vCloud Director should improve by having support with other cloud providers, such as Microsoft Azure and Google cloud."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The licensing model could be improved. We love that you can use it for free for looking at NetApp products. You only need licenses to look at non-NetApp products, but as soon as you do that, you start utilizing licenses that actually would have been free in the public. So, there is a bit of an anomaly in the licensing model."
  • "Be aware of the capacity licensing and understand how that works, because it is based on capacity. Getting an understanding of that is the biggest thing."

  • "It runs our company in the millions of rand every month."
  • "This is an expensive solution."
  • "It's a costly product. The licenses may not be costly, but with every new development in their product, we need to purchase deployment services, and the deployment services are quite costly."
  • "The license could be less expensive and we are on a perpetual license."
  • "In certain cases, the price of Cloud Director is quite high, especially with the load balancing and other features they've introduced. That seems quite costly. Overall, for VSPP programming, I think it's okay. However, features like enterprise load balancing and all these other things are very costly."
  • "We pay monthly for all of the licenses."
  • "vCloud Director is an expensive solution."
  • "vCloud Director is priced higher than other solutions, such as Nutanix."
