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

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The solution is expensive; it is not the cheapest solution out there. If you look at it from a total cost of ownership perspective, then it is a very compelling solution. However, if you're looking at just dollar per terabyte and not looking at the big picture, then you could be distracted by the price. It is not an amazing price, but it's pretty good. It is also very good when you consider the total cost of ownership and ease of management.""The pricing is expensive, but I think it's a fair value because it does manage itself. It definitely is much simpler than any of the other scale-out storage platforms that we've looked at in the past.""The platform is not cheap. However, on the software side, you can choose what you want license. So, you can start your licensing with the features that you need, then after buying the platform add some other features."

Overview

Dell EMC Isilon scale-out storage solutions are designed for enterprises that want to manage their data, not their storage. Our storage systems are simple to install, manage, and scale to virtually any size. Isilon storage includes a choice of all-flash, hybrid or archive nodes. Isilon solutions stay simple no matter how much storage capacity is added, how much performance is required, or how business needs change in the future.

Nasuni combines storage, backup and disaster recovery into a single solution. No additional backup software is necessary. With multiple copies of every snapshot stored in the cloud across multiple geographies, in locations of the company’s choosing, the enterprise is fully protected in case of a disaster. A full restore is as simple as starting up a virtual machine.
