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

Pros
The interface is user-friendly.It provides high performance and business-critical storage.The ability to pool the storage to leverage thin-provisioning is a huge saving in space and costs.During the maintenance periods, on any part of the storage or VMware migration, we have had no downtime.Supporting of Automated-Storage-Tiering (AST) is a good feature that saves money.DataCore's ability to seamlessly move virtual volume data between storage pools as well as their synchronous mirroring has made maintenance and disaster recovery planning achievable.DataCore has helped provide flexible, highly available, high-performance storage that otherwise would have been outside our price range.The features I have found most valuable are the active-active, or so-called grid technology, and the integration into our VMware-vCenter.

The most useful feature is the solution's automation in terms of how we are able to spin up a certain workload in real-time when we are doing R&D.The size of the hardware is what we need because it is very good for small configurations.

Cons
I would like to see reporting added, such as a monthly connectivity report.I miss dedupe and decompression.Having an enterprise "Storage Dashboard" that can show capacity, usage, performance, and any issues would be very beneficial.I think the performance reporting can be improved by adding historical statistics into a database for the purpose of comparing.We are waiting for container support (on the roadmap), as well as a user-friendly full web-administration capability, and an improved API.DataCore needs a more efficient and better way to keep track of metrics and counters so that we can do baseline analysis to measure performance.The cost is becoming prohibitive since they moved to a subscription model.I think an easier way to open a service call, right through the DataCore GUI, would be an improvement, especially when there is an urgent issue.

The licensing policy needs to be improved. They have a licensing policy based on the number of CPU sockets. Nowadays what has happened is that the license they are trying to move is based on the number of CPU cores. With the advancement in technology there are now more cores in a single CPU. It's been very challenging in terms of managing the license around everything. Today we have a processor with 24 and 32 cores on the same physical CPU.This product is not so stable. Maybe it is just not mature enough in its development.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Pricing has improved but it is still expensive.This solution allows the use of off-the-shelf hardware and charges by the TB of storage.Make sure you are made aware of the annual subscription cost when purchasing.The cost is at the same level as other storage solutions and it is easy to understand the licensing.The pricing and licensing are better with DataCore.
