IBM Storwize Review

Stable storage but other solutions have more features

What is our primary use case?

I use it for virtualization and databases.

What is most valuable?

It is simple but stable storage. I use the Snapshot feature.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?


How is customer service and technical support?

I have never used technical support for this solution. I haven't needed support.

How was the initial setup?

I did the initial setup based on the documentation it came with. It was very simple.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I looked at Dell and HPE solutions. I probably wouldn't buy a 3PAR but it does have more features than Storewize.

What other advice do I have?

My most important criteria when selecting a vendor are price, stability, support, and scalability.

I would rate this solution a seven out of 10. It is a good storage solution, but there many other options out there with more resources.
