We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The hybrid array provides scaleable, predictable, high performance with no capacity constraints."
"The solution is very user-friendly in terms of maintenance and configuration. It's also possible to connect the solution to other storage management solutions."
"The product has great data storage performance with a 100% data security and availability guarantee."
"Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G Series is a very stable device."
"It is robust. It doesn't need too much troubleshooting. It is a good device."
"The active-active option seemed to be working well and overall, it was a solid product."
"This is a good product with high capabilities and high reliability."
"It's best features are its reliability and stability."
"We have been able to scale faster and get our applications out in much less time. We don't need to worry about the platform's ability to manage the workload, so we are pretty happy."
"Any action we want to do with a Dell EMC product needs a license. But with 3PAR's converged solution, at least there is no need to purchase more licenses to get the all the features that we need. We can get basic and mid-range features without licenses."
"Technical support for both 3PAR and Dell EMC in my country, Iran, is very difficult because we are under sanctions."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the native full mesh (multi-pathing)."
"If there is a problem then the HPE facility will detect it and immediately contact me."
"The solution offers good stability."
"The product lasts a very long time without having to be replaced. It's had a very long life."
"The initial setup was straightforward."
"Hitachi Vantara has invested heavily in improving their management interface, however, they still have a way to go to catch up with many of their competitors."
"The initial setup was difficult, as we don't have access to assistance. We had some issues around configuration. We needed to know things like what kind of rate is the best, or what kind of replication is ideal. We had to seek out answers online to get the information we needed."
"The pricing is high, but the product is good. Additional features like data duplication might make it even better."
"A better user interface would be an improvement."
"The snapshot and clone operation functions can be made easier."
"It seemed like every time we turned around it was a statement of work and we'd have to pay for something that our previous vendors would not have billed us for."
"I would like to see an audit account set up such that the user can log in, see the configuration, and see the logs, but they cannot make any changes."
"In terms of what could be improved, it could use a better, faster web console and other consoles. It is so boring waiting, waiting and waiting for it to refresh."
"I think cloud integration would probably be the biggest part, because that's where everyone is going and the seamless integration between on-premise and cloud is an important part of any IT strategy today."
"I give it an eight because of the support, that I can't get support in my country. This is the worst part. Support cannot be sold until we are out of the sanctions."
"I would like to have support for On-The-fly reallocation Data when using VVoL."
"The price is a little bit high."
"The replicating software is pretty complicated. I probably would have put it on a sequence."
"As long as they can keep the solution stable, it will be good. Stability is very important to us."
"Although we experienced malfunctions where a virus was running and it failed."
"This product has come to the end of its lifecycle."
"Our main issue with the Hitachi G-Series is what we consider to be an archaic software licensing scheme and high maintenance costs."
"It is a little expensive."
"There are no licensing costs for this solution."
"The costs were primarily in line with every other vendor at the time."
"The cost price of this product is better than its competitors."
"We paid for five years of support when we purchased the product."
"The SSD is a little bit expensive."
"This is not an expensive product but every time you add capacity to it, you need to pay for re-balancing."
"Its price is a bit high for adding another tree, but when we purchased it, it was okay with us. We had compared it with EMC and other solutions, and it was okay at that point in time. Our storage has a lifespan of seven to eight years. When you purchase it, you need to keep a headroom of around 40% to 50%. After three to four years, you generally plan for an upgrade. The price is not so bad today for two years or so, and within a year, I might find that I have to upgrade or increase the storage. This usually happens when there is a radical change or a new application has come that is consuming a lot of data, but generally, there is a plan for the amount of data that we generate and the storage upgrade."
"It is lower in price as compared to other vendors, such as Dell. As compared to Huawei, all storage solutions are expensive, including this one."
"It is a bit more expensive. IBM is cheaper than HPE in Turkey."
"This solution is expensive. We pay every year for support. It's a lump sum because we pay for data center support services, and everything is included in one."
"The cost is reasonable given that the licensing is all included once you purchase it."
