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."

"The most valuable features are that it is easy to implement and configure, easy to use, and really reliable."

More Fungible Storage Cluster Pros »

"It uses the same platform for connectivity so integration is seamless.""The initial setup is pretty quick.""It's very easy-to-use.""The most valuable features are the Metro clustering, and disaster recovery.""The main feature I have found to be product replication.""It performs well and it is also very fast.""The onboarding and integrated monitoring tools are pretty good."

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."

"The security and reporting could be improved."

More Fungible Storage Cluster Cons »

"It's on the expensive side, as expected for a niche product.""Compared to, for example, Hitachi NAS, the solution is not mature at all. It's just in its infancy as far as technology goes.""The feature that we're waiting on is better integration with the cell services.""It would be nice if you could store file-based in the same box with the same technology.""There could be improvements in public cloud integration.""I would like to see the licensing fees improved as well as the price per terabytes.""The solution is expensive."

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."

"The price is a little high.""In my opinion, we have paid the right price for the product. I don't think that it is too much or too little.""The price of this solution could be made more affordable.""Licensing fees are paid yearly."
