What is most valuable?
The most valuable feature is the clustering. To be honest, this storage isn’t a particularly a good storage, but it offers basic storage services and easy clustering. I would say that if this storage were a school kid, many other storage solutions would bully it.
What needs improvement?
It needs support for clustering different disk nodes - nodes of different sizes.
For how long have I used the solution?
We've used it for seven months.
What was my experience with deployment of the solution?
We have had no issues with the deployment.
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
The failover is pretty slow, especially if you are using VMware storage.
What do I think about the scalability of the solution?
It has scaled to our needs.
How are customer service and technical support?
8-9/10 Technical Support
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?
This was already in the company when I joined.
How was the initial setup?
It’s kind of a primitive storage with limited options, so if someone has already worked with a proper storage solution, this won’t cause any headaches during the implementation. It's an easy click-click process after you have downloaded the management tool.
What about the implementation team?
What other advice do I have?
You shouldn't buy it, and get HP MSA or something similar.
