More Cloudian HyperStore Pros →

"Cost-effective and easy to deploy.""The technical support is good.""The backup features are valuable. I've heard from our backup and data protection people that our clients are very satisfied with the performance in junction with the backup, which they archive on this type of object storage."

More NetApp StorageGRID Pros →

"As it is an S3 solution with the same protocol as the one we have with AWS, having better integration with AWS will be beneficial."

More Cloudian HyperStore Cons →

"Beyond the initial setup, this product is a little bit difficult to configure.""Improvements need to be made in the support area.""The price is something that NetApp could improve, as with most companies. NetApp is known for not being the cheapest storage option, which is also valid for StorageGRID. There are other storage options on the market which we are aware of and have done proofs of concept for, but you cannot really compare the list prices because, as a big user of NetApp storages, we have totally different prices than some list prices. Still, the price information we got for other options are almost always less expensive than StorageGRID."
