The visualization needs some improvement because there are occasional delays while the system queries information.

As I went through learning the querying, it could have been a little more intuitive. I'm still fresh into the system. In a perfect world we would have something built, right out-of-the-box, that can identify what we call "noise," and reduce the amount of data. You're presented with so much data when you first start the data collectors. For example, it brings back a lot of change rates that happen just because of standard computing, like profile changes and that sort of thing. Being able to identify things like that and categorize them and strip it down—and it probably can do that, I just haven't gotten there yet—would be very beneficial. Getting that, out-of-the-box, would be helpful. There is training that has been provided. I just haven't gone through all of it yet.

There are some very specific things for improvement in the Cloud Secure product. I have already given this feedback to the product managers regarding this area.

There is room for improving the creating and managing or modifying of reports. That is still a difficult task to do and requires knowledge beyond the storage itself. I would love to see reporting improved so that we can create reports by dragging and dropping pieces into a report form and publish a report that way. We do get by with it, but typically it requires engagement with NetApp to get us the reports that we need.

It is for long-term tracking of performance information. I am also looking at the interaction between NetApp systems and non-NetApp systems. It's only really being used for the storage, and to a limited extent, our VMware. It is maybe being used once or twice a day at most. We're not using it actively. We are just using it in kind of a testing phase.

We're using it for monitoring and managing all of the NetApp storage in our environment, both in the cloud and on-prem. We are expanding it to use it with our virtualized environment and with our in-house storage environments.

It is good for giving an overview of the systems and for tracking long-term trends. It is handy for root cause analysis, e.g. it can eliminate whether storage is the cause of an issue.

Among the most valuable features are the queries and reporting that allow us to look at the utilization of resources, at how well the storage is performing, and to report on which resources are being used by which business units. We can track usage across the entire environment, across applications, business units, cost centers, etc.
