One of the most valuable features offered is double-parity RAID, which guarantees that your data will stay intact. We're also able to provision storage and monitor which ones are really consuming storage.It is good to have a unified storage where you can have block and file level protocols.The initial setup was so straightforward. It was well-documented.It is very flexible. It integrates well with the public cloud and other components, so everything can be API driven. Therefore, it is very easy to automate it.Using the built-in Snapshots and SnapMirror technology, we were able to have better working data protection locally and off-site.The storage efficiency provided a maximum savings in our storage utilization.End-users like that they can rely on the Snapshot technology so they can do their restores themselves.Most valuable features are its ease of use, robust Snapshot functionality, and that you can use it in two datacenters with SnapMirror-ing.

I would like to see less latency and higher IOPS.It lacks automatic tiering, When you use data, some of it goes cold. It is not hot data, so the system should automatically move that data to the SATA, while the hot data is kept on tier-one, the SaaS or SSD drives.The only downside is in ease in management; it is not easy to use.It's not a cheap system. It is very expensive. The pricing has been ridiculous every time that we had to renew the support.We would like to have further integration with some backup products. They have some of them already, but there could be more.The AutoSupport could be improved to be more proactive in certain cases.When getting new hardware, always tell the account manager that you are also considering other brands. They will be forced to adjust the price lower.Needs to ​add wizards for newer, inexperienced users.

The scalability is pretty good, but it's too expensive.The price, compared to competitors, is quite high.Cost effective storage for all performance levels (including all-flash).The only area that could be improved is to lower prices for their All Flash FAS.The price it not low, but comparing features to other vendors, the price can be balanced.There are products available in market with comparatively lower costs.Most storage vendors also have software, or licensing bundles, which may offer the required licenses considerably cheaper, but do also maybe offer licenses, which are not needed.The process for going to cluster mode is expensive.
