We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The way that they handle the DR is very good because when there is a failover, 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 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."
"It performs well and it is also very fast."
"The most valuable features are the Metro clustering, and disaster recovery."
"It's very easy-to-use."
"The initial setup is pretty quick."
"The onboarding and integrated monitoring tools are pretty good."
"It uses the same platform for connectivity so integration is seamless."
"The main feature I have found to be product replication."
"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."
"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."
"It would be nice if you could store file-based in the same box with the same technology."
"The feature that we're waiting on is better integration with the cell services."
"Compared to, for example, Hitachi NAS, the solution is not mature at all. It's just in its infancy as far as technology goes."
"It's on the expensive side, as expected for a niche product."
"The solution is expensive."
"There could be improvements in public cloud integration."
"I would like to see the licensing fees improved as well as the price per terabytes."
"Licensing fees are paid yearly."
"The price of this solution could be made more affordable."
"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 is a little high."
