Cisco HyperFlex HX-Series Review

It is scalable and easy to use


What is our primary use case?

The primary use case is that we are coming from a legacy data storage network and need more flexibility in both storage and network consumption.

How has it helped my organization?

HyperFlex give us a lot of features and functionalities which are key for us. This also applies to the storage.

What is most valuable?

It is scalable and easy to use.

What needs improvement?

We would like to move off the GUI.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The system runs. It has crashed. We haven't experienced any issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability has been very good for us since we were stuck on our old platform with old drives and hardware. Hyperflex has given us flexibility where we can scale up and down, allowing our servers to react. We now can do large scales for data storage, which helps a lot.

How is customer service and technical support?

I haven't used the technical support for this product.

What about the implementation team?

We used a partner for the initial deployment who was keen and professional.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We considered Cisco HyperFlex and NetApp.

We chose Cisco because we are a Cisco partner. This way we receive the same scalability all around.

What other advice do I have?

Just go with HyperFlex.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: Partner.
