Pros
They are the best support that we have had so far. When you contact or email them, they are very quick to respond. They always have someone available for us. That's what we want as a customer, we want someone to listen to us.Most important is its ease of use. You plug it in, follow the steps, and you have your backup file.Whenever you have a crash or your service is not working, you can just live-boot the machine and have your service up and running.The product is easy to install and use while doing what it is expected to do.We perform backup drills to test the functionality, and we don't have any problems.Easy, immediate protection for data that is virtually infinitely scalable.The scalability of the product is fine.

The most valuable feature for us is the combining of HA and SnapMirror.This solution provides us with easy management and great vendor support.One of the most valuable features offered is double-parity RAID, which guarantees that your data will stay intact. We're also able to provision storage and monitor which ones are really consuming storage.It is good to have a unified storage where you can have block and file level protocols.The initial setup was so straightforward. It was well-documented.It is very flexible. It integrates well with the public cloud and other components, so everything can be API driven. Therefore, it is very easy to automate it.Using the built-in Snapshots and SnapMirror technology, we were able to have better working data protection locally and off-site.The storage efficiency provided a maximum savings in our storage utilization.

Cons
We cannot backup Sun Micro systems. They are not currently supported.When we manage the box physically, we don't have as much control as we do when we manage from the cloud. The best management is from the cloud.I would like to see the Live Boot feature extended to Hyper-V machines, in addition to VMware machines.Some features like CIFS are not supported that would help speed and flexibility.I would like to see the automatic backup of critical applications to the cloud.The solution needs fine-grained backup capabilities to service individual users. But this is a minor issue considering all that the product does.It is not always stable.

Currently, the newest release is not HCI friendly.Dedicated storage efficiency accelerators could improve the overall performance of the system.I would like to see less latency and higher IOPS.It lacks automatic tiering, When you use data, some of it goes cold. It is not hot data, so the system should automatically move that data to the SATA, while the hot data is kept on tier-one, the SaaS or SSD drives.The only downside is in ease in management; it is not easy to use.It's not a cheap system. It is very expensive. The pricing has been ridiculous every time that we had to renew the support.We would like to have further integration with some backup products. They have some of them already, but there could be more.The AutoSupport could be improved to be more proactive in certain cases.

Pricing and Cost Advice
You don't need to buy an extra license or agent. With one box, you have licenses for any amount of devices that you want to backed up for whatever is backed up.You have two options, which we have. We pay for it bi-monthly. Then, you can purchase the project hours and support annually.The price of the five-year contract was approximately three million Rupees ($42,000 USD).Low, fixed cost with great savings.

The scalability is pretty good, but it's too expensive.The price, compared to competitors, is quite high.Cost effective storage for all performance levels (including all-flash).The only area that could be improved is to lower prices for their All Flash FAS.The price it not low, but comparing features to other vendors, the price can be balanced.There are products available in market with comparatively lower costs.Most storage vendors also have software, or licensing bundles, which may offer the required licenses considerably cheaper, but do also maybe offer licenses, which are not needed.
