Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Very stable and very scalable.""The solution is stable.""Integration with other NetApp solutions and merging them is manageable.""NetApp has its own dedicated operating system, so it will not be affected by any wireless piggybacking or malware. That's the beauty of NetApp's operating system."

"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."

More Qumulo Pros →

Cons
"The hardware does not last as long as it could with new software.""The solution could improve by having better support experts. For example, they do not have clear instructions on configuration.""They need a little more technical people in Akola. Most of the NetApp people are in Bangalore, Mumbai, or Delhi, but there are very few in Akola. I think NetApp has few technicians in Akola because they mostly rely on partners to service this area.""I'm not sure how easy it is to use on the cloud versus on-prem. If they have different user experiences, they should work to make the two as similar as possible to make it easy for a user to understand both even if they only deal mainly with one."

More NetApp Private Storage Cons →

"The price of the software is a bit expensive, so a reduction in cost would make it more competitive.""Qumulo should continue to expand automation and orchestration capabilities.""In the future, I would like to see non-disruptive updates."
