We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable features are resiliency and data protection."
"If you were comparing this solution to VMware, it has more features, and it's very fast on the recovery."
"I've found the data protection features the most valuable."
"The HPE Hyper Converged solution is used in a hybrid cloud configuration. We assess the disk space and partition additional capacity."
"What I really like about this program, is that it needs little space and it works really fast, so it saves us time."
"The most valuable feature is the in-built backup system. The backup speed is also excellent."
"Hyper-convergence is the most valuable aspect of the solution. We can avoid downtime when there's maintenance or updates needed. Also, we have homogenous hardware, so we have a lot of trust in the solution's reliability."
"The most valuable features of this solution are fast deployment, security, and it is easy to upgrade."
"Nimble DHCI is really user friendly and not complex"
"Very good in-line compression."
"The nice thing about it is that it truly integrates with the cloud, so I can move my volumes bi-directionally in and out of the cloud."
"A software-only version of the solution, without the hardware, would be nice."
"One problem I've had is that I was trying to do a move and it was not working. I was given an error and a message asking me to shut down the machine first and then move it to another host."
"The price can be improved. We would like to see support for some open source virtualization technology like for example KVM."
"Some improvement is required in the availability of the data and performance. The solution is too expensive for our customers. The pricing should be lower."
"The solution is not very stable."
"The solution can be improved on the management side. More management features should be added to future releases."
"The solution would be better served if it integrated with other solutions better."
"Providing local technical support and improving the price are areas this service needs to consider improving."
"Sometimes the technical support would get back to us in two hours, but other times it would take them two or even three days to respond."
"Lacking integration to the cloud."
"Their documentation needs to be simpler to read yet more detailed so it's easy to compare models and easier for clients to pick."
"It is an expensive solution, however. If they could adjust the pricing, that would be helpful."
"The solution is too expensive for our customers. The pricing should be lower."
"The solution is expensive - not only the hardware costs but server costs too. And the more you scale, the more expensive it gets."
"There are costs in addition to the standard licensing fees."
"I think it's priced right and it's extremely intelligent."
