We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I like that the solution is easy to scale and that's its stable."
"The stability is the most valuable aspect of the solution."
"What I like best about this product is that it is a complete solution, both hardware, and software, by the same vendor."
"It's definitely good for unstructured data. In earlier days, we had Centera, so for the DR it's really good. It has load balancing facility, and we're using it with the Kemp Load Balancer."
"It's my understanding that the initial setup is straightforward."
"It is 100% stable. It is also scalable."
"This product is very competitive."
"Stability is not a concern with this product."
"PCF is open, so the applications run really smoothly and with little downtime."
"The most valuable features are the monitoring and the deployment is easier."
"Technical support needs to be improved."
"In Taiwan, they don't have professional technical support."
"The solution could be more cost-effective and secure."
"The solution needs to provide better integration between this solution and all other kinds of systems."
"The disaster recovery could be improved because there should be something in-built within the ECS. Search and recovery should be in-built. Right now, we have to use some external tools for performing the recovery itself. For example, we're using Atempo or deploying Golden Superna, so it has dependency on the external third party vendors."
"You should be able to calculate so that when it's full it's 100% full, not just 90%."
"Its security can be improved."
"It is not straightforward to setup."
"The user interface should be simpler to navigate because it t can take time for users to learn it."
"In the next release, I would like to see easy integration with external tools."
"We are not paying for the license at this stage."
"Dell EMC ECS is too expensive."
"It's a lease-based model, so it's capacity-based. We already negotiated the price a lot, but we're still doing that with Dell because somehow the product was not installed successfully, so there was a lot of struggle in the distributor territory between Dell and the environment itself. I would give the solution a 6 out of 10 for the pricing. There's a little room for improvement."
"The solution could be cheaper."
