"I would like to see the inclusion of support for cloud-connectivity to providers like AWS."

"NetApp FAS Series could improve by being more secure."
"Interfacing with the cloud environment could be better. I want to be able to move some cloud volume and integrate it seamlessly with my home on-premise storage.

"Technical support needs to be improved, as there are no longer partners in our country."
"I would like to see NetApp add incident support."
"We are not able to connect to the support of NetApp from Sudan. We have to go through many agents for support, which makes it difficult."
