We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Deploying, Expanding, and Modifying systems are easier than ever.
This solution is super stable and reliable, and the kind of system that allows you to sleep at night.
VMAX3 is our main system for storage. All our systems and all our virtualizations are connected to it. In terms of expanding it, we are replacing it with a new system, the PowerMax 2000. So our current VMAX3 platform will be decommissioned soon. We are switching to PowerMax 2000 because we are looking for improved performance. We see it as the best fit for our requirements in terms of the performance and the overall cost.
I like the many new features, especially the all-flash solution.
This is one of the most stable, high-end solutions in this area.
The most valuable feature is that you can use it with all deployment models.
It is the most stable high-end solution in this area.
The high performance of flash storage is especially valuable to us.
This is one of the most reliable and dependable products on the market.
I am happy about the storage system and availability.
It's a state of the art solution in storage systems. High-availability and performance are the strongest aspects of these machines.
I'd like to see improvements where we can scale out an existing array and remove older controllers\drives\etc., within the same subsystem.
I'm looking for the day in which the VMAX platform can be considered 'web scale'.
I would like this solution to integrate the solution that EMC vPlex offers.
The interface should be simplified and made easier to use.
The user interface should be made simpler because it is difficult to manage.
The installation procedure it a bit difficult, because it is a high-end solution. With this type of product, the original company is interested in doing the setup for customers in the area, but because of sanctions we were not able to get support in our area. We faced many issued trying to learn to run this product.
In terms of new features, I would be interested to see deduplication added in their next release.
In the next version I would like to see additional features like artificial intelligence and an increase in the amount of data it can store.
In the next version I would like to see more intelligence.
The user experience is pretty bad in Hitachi. A lot of mandatory tasks take a long time to work through.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Setup cost and licensing are pretty straightforward.
When you are looking for high-end solutions such as this, price is less important than stability and availability.
This is an expensive solution.
This solution is cheaper than Dell EMC VMAX. When you are looking for a high-end solution, price matters, but availability and stability are more important than the price.
Pricing could be better, because the cost is very high.
I would like to see better pricing and more discounts.
