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. We can separate storage and computing, and we can scale these two parts of the platform to meet business needs efficiently."

"I would rate the user-friendliness an eight out of ten.""The interface is very user-friendly.""Sangfor has many solutions, and you can easily manage their machine servers with just one management. They're always striving for greatness, and they continuously update their products. For example, they have now built endpoint security within the firewall. They are continuously improving not only the security but also all other products.""The Continuous Data Protection (CDP) feature is one of the good features."

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."

More DataCore SANsymphony SDS Cons »

"Sangfor does not support a SAS configuration, which is something that we would like.""The error reporting needs to be improved.""It can have more compatibility and new features. I would also like to see better performance. Some of the other HCI solutions already provide the SSD and flash storage and much higher Intel processors. Sangfor HCI can improve on that.""Its virtual machine tools can be improved. These tools should be enhanced for use in other applications and operating systems, such as Linux."
