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."

"It is the most stable high-end solution in this area.""The most valuable feature is that you can use it with all deployment models.""This is one of the most stable, high-end solutions in this area.""The feature I like best is the stability of the hardware.""Its resilience is the most valuable.""The setup is very easy to manage and configure. The initial setup and takes one hour more or less."

"We get a quick response in case any component defaults. We have seen the benefits mostly.""The solution is easy to scale as needed.""Excellent and efficient support, and the product is a good price.""Great value for money.""Generally stable with good technical support.""The most valuable feature is the flexibility in the rail, as it is hybrid storage.""The setup and the price are the most valuable and not the features related.""The pricing is very reasonable."

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 installation procedure it a bit difficult, because it is a high-end solution. With this type of product, the original company is interested in doing the setup for customers in the area, but because of sanctions we were not able to get support in our area. We faced many issued trying to learn to run this product.""The user interface should be made simpler because it is difficult to manage.""The interface should be simplified and made easier to use.""They should look at the cost because there are other vendors who offer the same cost with more features.""Hitachi should launch some small machines in Brazil. The smallest machine here in Brazil is VSP 350, which can be quite big for some of the customers. In China, Hitachi has small models of this equipment, but those models are not available in our region. Its pricing is a big issue for us. We are resellers, and we face some competition from other vendors. Hitachi doesn't always have a good position in terms of the price. Its user interface is also not as good as some of the other competitors, and it can be improved.""For the support windows to work, maybe they have to upgrade the firmware of the VSP. They changed the hardware or the disk. I don't know if it was the port blade they changed or a VM for a memory cache. Also, replacing the old target with the processor target would be fine. The old equipment is very easy to manage, and I don't have any bad commentary."

"Huawei is not that cheap.""The technical support has been a let down for us. It's something the company has to work on. We haven't been satisfied with their level of service.""The user interface is not so user friendly.""Integration with mainstream solution technologies could be better.""Could have a more stable, lighter Metro and better logging system.""The administration should be simplified because there are a large number of options that make it too complicated, and the customers can get confused.""I would like to see the next generation all-flash, which could be combined.""Technical support could be more helpful."

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."

"This solution is cheaper than Dell EMC VMAX. When you are looking for a high-end solution, price matters, but availability and stability are more important than the price.""This is an expensive solution.""When you are looking for high-end solutions such as this, price is less important than stability and availability.""It is expensive as compared to other vendors, but its price is good if you are looking for stability, reliability, performance, and security."
