NetApp® OnCommand™ data management software offers effective, cost-efficient management of your shared storage infrastructure so you can help optimize utilization, meet SLAs, minimize risk, and boost performance.
Having used this for almost 6 years now I like what I have seen in the maturing of the UI to what is now a fairly snappy, intuitive product.
What do you dislike?
Not necessarily a dislike of OnCommand per se but I do dislike that you have to still use different flavors of this tool to get a holistic view of every aspect of your NetApp - System Manager, Performance Manager, Unified Manager etc
Recommendations to others considering the product
As I mentioned earlier in this review, I like what I have seen with the development of the UI but I do feel that NetApp need to focus on truly unifying all of their disparate tools in to a single application - this is the way the best operators in both SAN and other platforms are heading
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
As a company using a third party to manage our SAN, OnCommand is very necessary to give use even read-only access to what our SAN looks like and to allow us the insights we need for our capacity management and projections
