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

Pros
"The most valuable feature is the ability to replicate. We are running a financial company and it needs to be available 24/7. We can't afford any downtime.""The solution is stable; we've had no problems at all.""Technical support is very good. I do use it from time to time and it's always excellent.""It is just as stable as any other high-end solution.""I think that Dell EMC is one of the best technical support services in Ukraine.""The setup and installation is much simpler now, because Dell has standardized the configure process.""The interface is easy to use which makes the product user-friendly.""In terms of stability, it's good enough. It's okay."

Cons
"The lower model, the 3000, should have duplication. It doesn't right now. It's only from 5000 that this is offered, but it depends on the performance. It could be they don't offer it on lower models because the duplication is too much of a burden to the performance.""The cost of the solution could be better.""I don't think the solution is very scalable.""While the price is competitive, in the next release it would be better if they could reduce the fees.""Compellent comes in the form of a component that's not true of a unified storage platform.""The connection should be better integrated with the network to offer a better view of the system.""It's not very efficient anymore. There are better products out there.""The interface could be improved. It should have an application point of view."

"Hitachi Vantara has invested heavily in improving their management interface, however, they still have a way to go to catch up with many of their competitors.""The initial setup was difficult, as we don't have access to assistance. We had some issues around configuration. We needed to know things like what kind of rate is the best, or what kind of replication is ideal. We had to seek out answers online to get the information we needed.""The pricing is high, but the product is good. Additional features like data duplication might make it even better.""A better user interface would be an improvement.""The snapshot and clone operation functions can be made easier.""It seemed like every time we turned around it was a statement of work and we'd have to pay for something that our previous vendors would not have billed us for."
