We have certain application database servers, the data of which needs to be replicated or moved to an offline storage mode. That's where we bundle the offline or on-premise NetApp Private Storage.

NetApp Private Storage (NPS) is a NetApp hybrid cloud solution that entails putting a NetApp storage controller in a co-location facility adjacent to a hyperscaler (e.g., AWS) with a 10Gb direct connection.  


The value is the asset and data is owned and in complete control of the user but has access to the scalability and agility of the adjacent cloud services.

We've primarily used the solution for private storage. It is used as a Cinder backend for an OpenStack cloud and for NFS storage and as block storage.

It back ends some ESXi through NFS shares. I think our database people use it some as well and we have SnapMirror. We've done snapshots for a long time and I found pretty good value there. SnapMirror, we just started using probably about six months ago. SnapMirror replaced MDMP and it's a lot faster. I mean we get backups off-site way quicker than we did with MDMP and MDMP is going to go away in about, I'd say a couple of months. I would say it's probably impactful of probably somewhere in the 1,000 to 5,000 users.

We are moving to using a lot of NFS (Network File System). I normally work with VMware on the private cloud and then I use NetApp on NFS protocol with 10G connectivity. Mainly I use it in two ways. I use a lot of hybrid flash storage. Hybrid meaning that you have a little bit of SSD (Solid State Drive) and then at the back, you can use either SATA (Serial ATA [Advanced Technology Attachment]) or SAS (Serial Attached SCSI [Small Computer System Interface]) disk. So I use the hybrid with SAS and SSD, or I just use all SAS.

The primary use case is to maintain the marketing division's info. The storage is rather small. It is holding about 10 terabytes of storage. It has performed great in the six years that we have had it.

I found it on the Internet at 18360 6Pack prior to discount. 4 x 6 pack near 72.000$.  I will suggest that you think of changing your Netapp to another storage. Think on Nimble or Alletra. Less than 6TB RAW for 18.000$ is really expensive

NetApp has really added a lot of features over the years to improve the product and performance. They can do things now like control ingress. They can control egress.
