Cisco HyperFlex HX-Series Review

It has been great for the deduplication and compression of data, allowing us to save a lot of space


What is our primary use case?

We are using this product right now for our virtual environment.  

As the product develops, we are looking forward to utilizing the product on the cloud.

How has it helped my organization?

It has been great for the deduplication and compression of data, allowing us to save a lot of space.

If we wanted to deploy a virtual or new application, it used to take months to buy the product or hardware. Now, we can do it within fraction of seconds. That is time.

What is most valuable?

The compression and deduplication are very high. Therefore, we can use the size of the product more efficiently than other storage solutions.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see them expand onto the cloud.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

HyperFlex has been very stable. It was implemented at our bank a year ago and has had no downtime.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable. We recently added three more nodes, which went very smoothly.

How is customer service and technical support?

The technical support is very good, especially from the Cisco side.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We were not previously using another solution.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward when implementing the hardware and deploying the software.

What about the implementation team?

We used a reseller called Data Consult from Lebanon for our deployment. Our experience with them was good.

What was our ROI?

We have saved a lot of money with this solution, especially with implementation because time is money. Implementing the solution on the same box saves a lot of space.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price is a bit high. It could be better, but the product is worth the cost.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

What other advice do I have?

Try it. The HyperFlex solution is perfect.
