HPE StoreVirtual Review

The network RAID feature provides maximum availability.

How has it helped my organization?

It gives us what we want. It provides stability and availability. It is a very reliable solution.

What is most valuable?

The network RAID feature gives us maximum availability, since we cannot afford any downtime, even for a second. We need our systems continuously up.

What needs improvement?

The next release is already out and I found that the many of the improvements that we were thinking about in the product such as the dual controller, are already implemented.

The penalty for the availability is performance. So, you have to balance or choose between the availability and the performance. We chose availability, but it would have an impact in the performance.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Now, we're not afraid of anything that goes wrong.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We didn't have any problems. We scaled up a few years ago; the system was just fine.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have used the technical support only for faulty replacements such as replacement of disks, for example. The contract was for the next business day. It was fine.

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

We were not using any other solution previously. Our partner suggested this product; we saw that it fits our needs and tried it out. We were quite pleased with the result and decided to invest in this solution.

How was the initial setup?

I was involved in the setup process. It was easy.

What other advice do I have?

If this solution fits your needs and also if your environment is similar to ours, then we would suggest this solution.

The factors that we look at while selecting a vendor are that they should be innovative, provide a good support option and have reliable products. I don't want my product to fail.
