It simplifies management and helps us deal with our customers' classification issues
We use BlueXP to manage the data in our two data centers and on the cloud.  The primary benefit is that it simplifies data management. We face a lot of classification issues with our customers. They need to classify data, but they don't know how to do it. We can help them do it using BlueXP…

We use this solution to provide storage and applications to our users With the new version 9.11.1, the System Manager functionality was improved - you can do more operations using GUI. Also, multi-user authorization is a nice new feature. One of the main features is the ability to run the block…

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"NetApp BlueXP makes it easier to deliver products and manage inventory."
"The primary benefit is that it simplifies data management. We face a lot of classification issues with our customers. They need to classify data, but they don't know how to do it. We can help them do it using BlueXP Datasense."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to view all our different systems in one place. That's the most important feature for us."
"In OnCommand Unified Manager, we can monitor the entire cluster as well as configure data protection through Unified Manager."
"Snapshot is a valuable feature."
"I am impressed with the product's ability to warn us whenever something is wrong with the system. It is connected with Active Directory and Exchange. Whenever there is anything wrong with NetApp, the solution will alert you to an event error, post which you can start to troubleshoot."
"One of the main features is the ability to run the block and file storage from the same system."
 

Cons

"The tool needs to make its licensing pages more user-friendly."
"Performance could be a little better. In my opinion, it's a bit slow. If you click on something, it takes a while for the data to load."
"The VMware capabilities can be improved."
"The solution lacks the ability to generate reports from Snapshot."
"At present, OnCommand Unified Manager has just the monitoring and data protection features. It would be better to add some features for entire cluster management and storage management. Automation should also be included so that instead of separately accessing Unified Manager and OnCommand Workflow Automation, we can work in a single window. It is very much required."
"There could be better performance in block storage and the GUI could be improved because not every operation is available. You need some operations in the CLI."
"The tool is not intuitive and the menus are confusing, especially the snapshot view."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"The tool is cheaper than EMC but more expensive than HP and Pure Storage. I would rate the solution's pricing an eight out of ten."
