Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform F Series Review

Stable hardware that is straightforward to set up, and the interface is improving


What is our primary use case?

We use this product for everything. It's a maximum workload. We use the rackmount for virtual workloads, databases, applications, centralized workflows, Hadoop, and Big Data.

What is most valuable?

The feature I like best is the stability of the hardware.

I like the UI that has recently been launched in the Hitachi help center.

What needs improvement?

They need to focus on a single UI, then the multiple components.

They should look at the cost because there are other vendors who offer the same cost with more features.

I would like to see the UI flexibility improved, as most of the vendors are providing a better UI. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with the Hitachi F-Series for the last three years. In total, I have been working with Hitachi products for about 15 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's a scalable product. We have more than 1000 users.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is good. Obviously, it can be better, but it is good.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward.

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

Compared with other vendors, there is a lot of competition that provides the same cost, with more features.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
