"The must have UI for NetApp"

What do you like best?

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

"A storage solution that comes with every kind of sauce and flavor under the sun"

What do you like best?

Netapp is the most capable software storage product with the ability to sever any kind of data and support all kinds of features you never even heard of. One of the best CIFS filers out there.

What do you dislike?

As a jack of every trade, Netapp does not excel and doing any single task. There is always another product or service that can do feature X better than Netapp.

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

We use Netapp for all purpose storage needs and storing all of our shared network drives.

What Non-Native Database Management Systems solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

A few things got moved around from the old version, had to hunt for them for minute, but nothing too bad.

"Solid NAS/SAN with robust features"

What do you like best?

Lots of features for provisioning, backup, disaster recovery

What do you dislike?

Inefficient because of RAID Groups and aggregates and the need for a root aggregate. Leads to waste of capacity. Deduplication not as good as other storage.

NAS, SAN, Snapshots

"On-Command a True Performance"

What do you like best?

The ease in which I can go in to the software and look at specific things that I want to see like IOPs or CPU usage

What do you dislike?

Doesn't work with all NetApp products like their e-series

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

We are able to identify servers that we may need to move or that have been over allocated so that we can recover space.

"OCI and OCUM Rock!!!"

What do you like best?

OCI Data analytics and report studio. OCUM 6.4 single pane of glass with OPM 2.1 makes things easy!

What do you dislike?

In order to wield the full power of IBM Cognos report studio surging OCI you need SQL, OCI, or Cognos training!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get OCI, SQL, and Cognos training beforehand and use the DWH daily!

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

Industrial storage performance and capacity

Simplified and consolidated access/management of multiple filers.
