Overall performance of the solution.The scalability and being able to implement it quickly.Individual settings you can put on each individual volume, if you want to do that.We can add a node, we add compute, we add storage, and we've had really good luck with that.If we get complaints about any kind of performance metric issues, whether it's storage related or something on the virtual side, we use it to pinpoint what the actual issue is.SolidFire is one of the products that does have great APIs right out-of-the-box. It works great. The tools and the other stuff seem to work a little better right out-of-the-box than the ONTAP stuff does, C-Mode.Being able to provide quality of service as promised.Templates are already predefined for it. If you're coding it up, it will take two days. You can pick up a template right there from the API, and it just works for you. Implementation done in 10 minutes.

Cons
The administration and support (on the way that they delivered) was a little bit slow.

It's a very good Windows-type solution. But we do a lot of legacy systems and the like. So it's getting that incorporated into it that would help us.A little better segregation of the multi-tenancy. Right now, it's just VLAN-specific, that's all you can do.We had some false positives, power supplies failing, and that's really been about it. We had a couple of glitches during some upgrade processes but nothing that was really concerning to us.For example, the ease of use with the reporting. Right now it's not impossible, but you have to know Sequel. It's a little time consuming to get those customized reports in there.They could do a file-based NAS: SolidFire NAS-based. It's probably not its niche, but that is our direction, not to use block, and it's block. Solid state block is what it is.I would like to see integration with the cloud, number one. Being able to spin SolidFire in the cloud.So feature-wise, I would say more reporting tools that could be merged into it.We have a large fiber channel infrastructure, and that's one area that we haven't seen implemented in SolidFire, its more iSCSI.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
We would probably use SolidFire more, except we're getting more bang for our buck with our purchases of ONTAP right now, and the deal we made with NetApp, so it's more of just a cost decision
