Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"We have been able to consolidate storage into Pavilion. Pavilions are our only SANs because it is a bring your own disk solution. When new drives come out, we are able to take out half of the drives in the system, put in new drives, move our VMs over to the new drives, take the other drives out, and populate those with new drives. Then, we are suddenly twice as dense as we were before. NVMe flash is only going to get denser and cheaper so we can make use of that every couple of years by just throwing newer disks into it at a fraction of the cost of a new SAN.""The high performance is very valuable, as well as the enterprise reliability features.""There's lots of flexibility in how we use the resources while also maintaining a small footprint."

"This solution makes it easy to manage storage, provision new workloads, and scale-up.""This product is perfect for small, and mid-range customers who need to pay less, but still, get enterprise-level capabilities.""Integration is easy with this product.""The most valuable feature is the integration with vCenter."

"The most valuable aspect of the solution was how fast it worked on behalf of VDI desktops.""The most valuable feature is the VM management."

Cons
"The rail system that Pavilion uses to mount up into a standard Dell or APC cabinet extends further back than normal rails, and they cover up the zero PDU slot. So, I don't like the rail system that comes with the device. That is my biggest complaint.""In our current configuration, we can only run the line controllers in high availability, active-standby mode, whereas we would like to see active-active implemented.""I would like to see the management layer improved."

"This solution would be improved with the addition of flexible raid volumes.""This product needs to have better integration with enterprise backup solutions and archiving devices.""Currently, the protocol SNMP is not implemented. That's a problem, as we follow this protocol and I can't check the integrity of this equipment.""Support Responsiveness & time to fix bugs should be improved."

"Technical support is an area where we had several issues, and it was hard to get some support in a specific case we had. I'm not very satisfied with them.""The solution is already good but the brand name is not so popular here."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This is hardware. They have a singular array that you can populate with your own disk, or you can buy the disks through them. For controllers, you pay for the components inside of the SAN, but there is only one chassis that they work with.""The licensing fees are very reasonable."
