Why customers choose NetApp vs Dell

Read peer reviews from IT Central Station.

We had the Dell EMC product line for a long time... However, the capability of being able to go beyond the storage, as a software-defined solution is something that attracted us to NetApp. It is a fit all solution.

Felmon Kahissay, System Administrator, Bell Canada

We also considered Dell EMC and Pure Storage. The biggest reason we picked NetApp was the ease of actually getting the data to the next iteration but also the other vendors don't have a product that supports everything we needed which is file services and block services. It's a one stop shop and I didn't really want to have to manage another box and a storage device at the same time.
