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

Pros
We are a 100% satisfied with the stability of the solution.Stability-wise, this solution is fine.The feature I find most valuable, is the deduplication, because the nature of the data that we are using in our current environment, has a lot of replicated data.The performance of the All-Flash System is very good. There is more enhanced performance and data production in the solution, which I appreciate.The initial setup was really straightforward. It was not complex. Deployment took one month, due to the data migration duration.The FS900 uses custom built flash modules offering with better latency, and is also denser packed then most modular all-flash arrays using commodity SSDs.An easy interface to set up, good build quality, and easily accessible parts for hot swapping combined with sub 500 us latency under heavy load.The initial customer technical support was efficient and effective.

Cons
I think the only thing the developers can look at, is that it is limited to 25 gigabytes currently. In the next release they might want to increase that.This solution needs a management console where we are alerted to issues and can report them, or escalate them through email or another method.I would like to see an improvement in the handling of large amounts of rights.The solution is not easy to implement. It takes a lot of time to study the product and it's a little complicated in general.The solution is not able to replicate data in one-to-many scenario.When we performed some HW fault tests under heavy load, we found that some of the parts (fan units and PSUs) should only be removed from the airflow for a short time (less than a minute) when replacing.Include an option to upload the support package to the IBM ECuRep when opening an IBM PMR.

The exterior display needs to be improved.The pricing is high, but the product is good. Additional features like data duplication might make it even better.

Usually, when a part fails, we have to replace it and it takes a while. It would be better if the part could be available locally here in Kenya so we don't have to wait so long to repair the solution.In the next release, I would like to see support for Hyper-converged infrastructure.

Overview
IBM FlashSystem products are enterprise computer data storage systems that store data on flash memory chips. Unlike storage systems that use standard solid-state drives, IBM FlashSystem products incorporate custom hardware based on technology from the 2012 acquisition of Texas Memory Systems. This hardware provides performance, reliability, and efficiency benefits versus competitive offerings.

The Hitachi Universal Storage Platform VM delivers proven enterprise-class functionality — advanced virtualization of externally attached storage, logical partitioning, thin provisioning and universal replication — in flexible, cost effective service oriented configurations. 

The DE All-Flash Series delivers the performance of more than 2,000 15k rpm HDDs, yet requires only 2% of the rack space, power, and cooling. Because it consumes 98% less space and power, DE Series can significantly improve the overall efficiency of your IT operations while continuing to meet your performance requirements.
