What do you like best?

The user interface is super easy with the kind of the volume management provided. The main feature is you can mount a volume to any of the device irrespective of the OS, brand and any other thing given you have proper bandwidth is really commendable.

The license is the main thing which I thought awesome in this product, where it has been so secure and having so many properties like snap-mirror, snap-vault, NFS, CIFS, etc. really makes this one special. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The price maybe a bit more than what I would have given for such a product. But since the security is really good, this have been like an ignore-able dislike.

Other thing is as I look at it, the snapshots for 7 mode systems were really slow when the reclaiming was happening, This is the one which bothered me a lot. When I was checking for any of my volumes size, it would be really high even if the snapshots are deleted and volume has enough space. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since this is connected to cloud which is really helpful for my case who travel a lot and having this kind of storage anywhere I go really helps me and this has been one of the fastest volume mounts I have seen which can satisfy user easily. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

As I have used Netapp volumes to mount all of my cloud devices, this is really useful to me as I have seen ever. Previously I was using Hitachi for my personal documents and all, but after this has been introduced to me after such a short time with so many futuristic features, this has been one of the really cool ones I have used.

The security compliance they use, the hash programming, the commendable features like python integration is really cool which I have never seen before which can be so easily used and coded into the super complex systems too.

The ActiveIQ and user interface to maintain these volumes really helped me a lot in real time situations. Since I have been coding this to my interface with python, the speed and usage is hyper now.

The bandwidth and speed in which it works even in the low internet conditions has been really helpful to me in scarce situations too.

NFS, CIFS and ISCSI mounts are the building block of my systems now. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The 7 mode older systems has been a little saggy in these days. The snapshots and their maintenance has been discarded by Netapp.

Even if the volumes are older, and support is difficult, I hope the Netapp guys continue supporting these systems which will not be of any harm.

Even the disk replacement costs has been increased for these older systems which I didn't like. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Go for it, this is the right direction. Please consider the money which you are buying this for since this may be more than what you use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used this in all of my personal computers, office computers and since the administration of the volumes and other things are handled by us, now I could see how much these really help someone who is really trying to deploy these in the really easier versions with great interface and speed.

What do you like best?

Cloud Volumes OnTap allows us great flexibility to provide storage for our applications.

We can add new volumes in minutes. We can clone volumes to make current production data available for application development and testing in just a few minutes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Using Cloud Manager to manage the Cloud Volumes can be somewhat difficult. It requires getting used to a new way of managing the volumes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Cloud Volumes for application NAS storage. This allows multiple servers in our AWS cloud to access the same storage volume. And by utilizing clones, the cloned volumes can be used for application testing without having to make a complete separate copy of the production data. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Ease of deployment, familiar interface, reliable outcomes Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Closely evaluate whether it is actually needed. CVO mimics many native cloud processes and functions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

CVO makes transitioning to a cloud scenario less scary for some long time NetApp customers. Seeing something familiar in the cloud helps with the change. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The most beneficial aspect of CVO is the ability to easily scale and tailor instances to the needs of the environment. Adding disks, changing aggregates and balancing the cluster is all available with just a few clicks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Trying to manage a large environment from cloud manager is difficult. The footprint for cloud manager has to be dramatically increased in order to recognize any benefit from trying to manage on prem clusters through cloud manager. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our instance of CVO was constructed to serve as a DR storage solution for our C2 and C3 applications. The ability to quickly scale and adjust aggregates is beneficial both in terms of time and cost. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The performance of CVO leaves a lot to be desired, as does the lack of scale-out. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

DR/Backup to and within AWS is the primary use case. For customers who rely on SnapMirror and are reaping the benefits of NetApp snapshots and flexclones, CVO is unparalleled in its efficiency both operationally and financially. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

A legacy application was dependent on enterprise class CIFS support. Cloud ONTAP enabled the application to be hosted at AWS w/o compromising CIFS support /w SnapMirror support for DR.

Per instance performance constraints were overcome by logically segregating shares across multiple instances. Enabled us to get the application in the Cloud with minimal changes from a bare metal data center to continue its evolution. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
