We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This is a good product with high capabilities and high reliability."
"We have many different types of replication, such as remote and drop local replication. All these features and licenses are already available. These are basic features available in the current model. Additionally, the performance has been good in our experience."
"It's best features are its reliability and stability."
"It is robust. It doesn't need too much troubleshooting. It is a good device."
"Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G Series is a very stable device."
"The active-active option seemed to be working well and overall, it was a solid product."
"The performance was decent."
"Huawei has a lot of penetration into accounts in Islamabad and the whole region, especially in Islamabad, because this is where our capital is, this is where most of the government offices are."
"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."
"We moved away from this product because we were looking for an all-flash solution, and with our G1500 at the time, perhaps two years ago, they were just proposing more of the same technology."
"A better user interface would be an improvement."
"The snapshot and clone operation functions can be made easier."
"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."
"We have not been able to procure more discs for upcoming projects and this has been a problem for us. Not having additional storage is going to be an issue. The solution is at its end of life and will be replaced soon."
"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."
"It is an expensive product. They should lower the price."
"The price of the solution is reasonable. However, I have not done extensive comparative research on the price. If you want to upgrade the size of the disc you will need to purchase a license that accounts for the size."
"There are no licensing costs for this solution."
"The cost price of this product is better than its competitors."
"The costs were primarily in line with every other vendor at the time."
