NetApp OnTap is crucial for our daily business
Comments: My overall experience with NetApp OnTap has been great. When it was implemented we consolidated geographically dispersed storage systems into several NetApp clusters in 2 datacenters. Having all of our data manageable in one pane of glass has been great.
Pros: OnTap provides great tools for managing and administering our storage infrastructure. The best feature is the OnTap Unified Manager which puts all of your storage information in a single pane of glass.
Cons: When using OnTap, there is a learning curve if you are coming from other storage providers such as Dell or HP. It was not very easy to get right into and figure out, but NetApp does offer training to help with this.

Versatile but challenging
Comments: Stable & versatile, but you need to have an advanced degree to administer or monitor.
Pros: NetApp has always risen to the top of the list in terms of versatility and reliability. We’ve always appreciated having the options to connect to our data however we need (CIFS, iSCSI, NFS), and over the 6 years we’ve had it in operation, it’s been extremely stable & reliable.
Cons: Administration has been a challenge. Their On Command dashboard has improved over the years, but still leaves much to be desired. Not very intuitive, and can be difficult to navigate. You need a separate VM for performance monitoring, and it is also cumbersome to use. And our worse frustration is system upgrades. Through their support website, you can generate a detailed upgrade guide, but it’s 28 pages long, full of dozens of complicated CLI commands. It should not be this difficult. Other vendors have one click upgrades.

NetApp is a flexible storage that is easy to use

I have been administrating Netapps storage servers for nearly 20 years.
It just works!
Sold stable predictable performance and availability.
Consistent time proven upgrade paths.
The need for "forklift" upgrades as hardware approaches and of life.
High support costs that increase drastically at the end of the initial contract period.

The Ontap OS is great. Very simple and easy to use
Pros: Creating flex clones is a great help in test or development environments. Also a great way to quickly and easily restore data
Cons: compared to other storage vendors Netapp is not always able to compete with the pricing that they have to offer
