"The solution has tiers inside which means we do not only need to use SSDs."
"The most valuable features are the NAS features and NetApp's excellent support."
"Can use both SAN and NAS at the same time."
"The most valuable feature for us is the combining of HA and SnapMirror."
"I like it. When it is up and running, it does the job."
"Data consolidation and visualization."
"The solution is easy to use."
"It's an easy product to use that is stable and has good performance."
"The most valuable feature is real-time analytics."
"The ratio of total operational cost to complexity versus feature set is very good."
"The feature that I like most is the analytics part of the file system."
"No other area for improvement comes to mind other than its price. Making the price more attractive will help this solution have a bigger market share."
"Its licensing cost can be improved."
"The one aspect of the solution that's negative for us is also more unique to us due to the fact that we did a MetroCluster. The tiebreaker piece that does the monitoring of the two different locations, and determines if one is not talking to the network normally (or if it's truly down) is a little difficult. It feels like it was not designed from the beginning to fit well into the other pieces. It feels like it was thrown in at the last minute and it is not smooth."
"The solution could do more than just data."
"NetApp FAS Series could improve by being more secure."
"Currently, the newest release is not HCI friendly."
"Its operating system is very cumbersome. However, after you set it up, it runs pretty smoothly. Its file system is not very dynamic. It is very static."
"There is no NetApp infrastructure set up here in Greece."
"The price of the software is a bit expensive, so a reduction in cost would make it more competitive."
"In the future, I would like to see non-disruptive updates."
"Qumulo should continue to expand automation and orchestration capabilities."
