Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Supporting of Automated-Storage-Tiering (AST) is a good feature that saves money.""During the maintenance periods, on any part of the storage or VMware migration, we have had no downtime.""The ability to pool the storage to leverage thin-provisioning is a huge saving in space and costs.""It provides high performance and business-critical storage.""The interface is user-friendly.""It's a software storage solution that can scale as we like. There is also has a parallel feature that enhances the performance of the storage solution.

Cons
"We are waiting for container support (on the roadmap), as well as a user-friendly full web-administration capability, and an improved API.""I think the performance reporting can be improved by adding historical statistics into a database for the purpose of comparing.""Having an enterprise "Storage Dashboard" that can show capacity, usage, performance, and any issues would be very beneficial.""I miss dedupe and decompression.""I would like to see reporting added, such as a monthly connectivity report.""Problem detection could be easier. It should help customers identify problems very quickly because it's not easy to analyze on the platform today."
