Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G Series Review

Good support, highly reliable, with high capabilities, and is secure

What is our primary use case?

The primary use is as a SAN device for my ERP solution, as well as for my Windows Servers.

What is most valuable?

This is a good product with high capabilities and high reliability.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see an audit account set up such that the user can log in, see the configuration, and see the logs, but they cannot make any changes.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform for one and a half years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is very stable and in the last one and a half years, we have not faced any issues with it. We are going to continue using it in the future.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This product is pretty scalable. We have approximately 1,200 users who are storing data or using it one way or another.

How are customer service and technical support?

We had some issues with the creation of partitions and it was taken up by Hitachi and it was resolved immediately. I would say that their support is pretty good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to this, we were using the IBM V3700 series, and we upgraded from that to the Hitachi.

How was the initial setup?

The installation was straightforward. We faced some issues because of the travel calendar because there is no partner for Hitachi in the North zone. It took some time, but it was pretty good.

What about the implementation team?

An integrator assisted us with the deployment. In total, there were six people involved in setting up the complete configuration. Three of them were from my side, and the other three from the vendor.

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

The cost price of this product is better than its competitors.

What other advice do I have?

This is a product that I don't think needs any improvement because I don't see any challenges. I definitely recommend this solution to others.

The security of this solution depends on how it is installed.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
