NetApp AltaVault Pros review quotes

Most importantly is having that island into that datacenter, and being able to address things in the same console. Thus, it is irrelevant where it's stored.

It's so easy to work with.

It's pretty simple. Once you set it, it goes; and then the idea of being able to get it to the cloud very quickly. It's kind of a set-it-forget-it.

The flexibility. Being able to virtualize it, port it wherever I like, test my backups, test my DR capabilities whenever I like without impacting anybody.

Its initial setup is easy.

The deduplication engine. Right now, we're at about 10.5 to 11 times deduplication of our backup data.

Being able to move data seamlessly from one-premise to the cloud (Azure). It works great. The backup solution is perfect for us.

The solution can be used for all Office 365 applications.

The most valuable features of the solution stem from the fact that it is easy to use and integrate with whichever operating systems you use, providing you with a complete view, especially when you plan to migrate to some other operating system.

You can store backups for a while.

There are some bits it could do better. With tighter integration maybe with Veeam, or something like that, it'd be really good.

The solution needs faster indexing.

What could be helpful is different user base authentication so then maybe we could allow different customers to point to a single appliance and they only see the backups and things that they have.

More than a 500 volume limit. At the moment, it only supports up to 500 volumes for SnapMirror and that's a problem. We've got 750, so a larger limit for volume replicas for SnapMirror.

NetApp's own competing products complicate things.

I really want to partner it with the SnapCenter. We haven't implemented that yet. We're upgrading all of our stuff to the ONTAP 9, which you had to have.

More capacity with the basic model of the AltaVault would probably help out.

It would be nice if the solution was more complete. Many customers are looking for a single solution or silo that they can manage everything from. It would be nice, instead of having different products, if everything a client needed was in one solution.

The initial setup phase of the tool was difficult.

It's a good product, but it's becoming outdated and moving to their other primary architecture.
