Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The way that they handle the DR is very good because when there is a failover, it is seamless to the users.""The features that I have found most valuable are their retention logs. The other thing I have found most valuable is the way they handle the BHEA. Basically the DNS and everything is managed by itself. It is seamless to the users.""Feature-wise, it has a lot of features. The most valuable features include de-duplication, encryption, version controlling, support, and tamper-proof data."

"The ability to get to the StorageGRID from anywhere on my network. The solution is remote. You don't have to be at a physical location.""The implementation with NetApp went smoothly. It is a 'setup and forget' type of appliance.""It has enabled us to save money on storage costs. We removed our tape library.""It has improved our operational efficiency through time consumption and logistics by 40 to 50 percent. Everything that had to do with our legacy tape solution has been improved and is now more efficient.""Duplication, interface and the manageability is good and simple."

Cons
"What is lacking in this solution is a simple process to migrate from existing systems.""In terms of the customer support, I can say it's a mixed reaction depending on the country.""They should improve the user interface. It's a little bit complex. It does not have a self-learning method. You need to know how to use it before you touch the system. The user interface is not self-explanatory."

"There was a small amount of confusion when working with StorageGRID and Active Directory for access. We had to do things three to four times resulting in our engineer troubleshooting a couple of things. The location of the menu, along with what is inside the menu: configurations, settings, etc., is not straightforward to users. Most users are Windows-based. So, when make logical changes to the menu which are not similar to Windows, users and administrators get confused.""The redundancy and reliability are great, but I also see room for improvement there. I would like to see more efficiency in the storage and dedupe/compression solutions."
