Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform N Series Review

Good scalability and performance, but needs better usability and more management features


What is our primary use case?

It is unstructured storage. We are using the latest version of this solution.

What is most valuable?

Its scalability and performance are the most valuable. It is quite scalable and has a huge capacity.

What needs improvement?

Its usability can be improved. It can have more management features. Its management tools lack features.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been dealing with Hitachi N Series since its release, which happened three years ago.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Its scalability is good. Our customers are medium and big companies.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have contacted them. They are quite good.

How was the initial setup?

Its initial setup is complex. It is not customer installable. You need to have special training before you can do the installation. You need to get certified and trained, and then you can do the installation. If you're a trained professional, it would probably take a day.

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

It is expensive. Everything is included in the license. There is no additional cost.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution. It is pretty on par with the market. I would advise others to speak to the supplier and understand all the features and functions.

I would rate Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform N Series a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
