Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
In our implementations, HDS Storage Virtualization has helped in migrating data with the least amount of downtime, compared to other storage technologies.
The replication technology can move data faster than EMC MirrorView and requires less bandwidth. The Storage Virtualization technology is the most mature in the market, outside of IBM’s Storwize (which has a lot of compatibility issues, and EMC’s very expensive VPLEX solution); and it works.
The solution's most valuable feature is its ability to restore lost machines. Essentially its high availability capabilities are extremely valuable to us.
The user interface, reporting, and management are good, and we are quite happy with the performance.
This solution is very simple to use.
An update to its technology would be good. The G Series has been around for more than five years and HDS seriously needs to ramp up, since the competition has better performance at a lower cost with better features and functionalities. For example, it needs redirect on write Snapshot, preconfigured storage tiering with better IOPS, built-in deduplication technology on hybrid disk, etc.
HDS reaches a ceiling depending on model. The G200 cannot transition to G400, the G400 can transition to G600 but cannot transition to G800, which is the top-end model.
The solution has a complicated front-end.
The interface is not fully integrated with the ESXi, which is something that could be improved.
I would like to see better manageability and integration with third-party tools.
Perhaps they can work on providing faster allocation of memory or storage.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
This is an expensive system and not every customer has the kind of budget to support it.
Pricing is good. We have not calculated what hyper-converged infrastructure has brought us but I think there has to be some lower cost for us, compared to the public cloud. Obviously, there would be a lower cost, probably by more than half.
