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.

Overall: Stable & versatile, but you need to have an advanced degree to administer or monitor.

Pros: Work well so far with intensive IOPS load. Running VDI on this storage and there is no IOPS bottleneck

Cons: Expensive solution and software add-on can cause a bomb.
