To help you find the best modular SAN tools, IT Central Station ranked them based on hundreds of real user reviews, from our esteemed community of enterprise technology professionals. You'll find comparisons of pricing, performance, features, stability and many other criteria. Read below to find out what your peers have to say about modular SAN vendors such as Nutanix, HPE, Dell EMC, NetApp and others.
The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score.
The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score.
(20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.)
Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in
that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product
with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) *
80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our
rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution
for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews;
two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old,
as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.
When evaluating modular storage area networks, the IT Central Station users emphasized several key components. First and foremost, the SAN must be easy to integrate into the existing infrastructure and include interoperability with the different platforms it will be connecting with. In the same vein, quality modular SANs must be easy to use and manage for admins and users, and should be built with a basic interface that anyone can operate. Secondly, reliability is important, along with IOPS capacity, throughput, and flexibility to allow for spinners and flash storage capacity. Finally, good pricing was a strong concern for many of the users.
