"Their cloud services could be improved."

More Huawei FusionStorage Cons →

"Beyond the initial setup, this product is a little bit difficult to configure.""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.""Improvements need to be made in the support area."
