This solution provides us with easy management and great vendor support.The most valuable feature for us is the combining of HA and SnapMirror.One of the most valuable features offered is double-parity RAID, which guarantees that your data will stay intact. We're also able to provision storage and monitor which ones are really consuming storage.It is good to have a unified storage where you can have block and file level protocols.The initial setup was so straightforward. It was well-documented.It is very flexible. It integrates well with the public cloud and other components, so everything can be API driven.

This product would be improved with the inclusion of more features to security or WORM.The product could be improved with better support for data protection.I don't see any new features that we could want or anything that could be done along those lines.

Dedicated storage efficiency accelerators could improve the overall performance of the system.Currently, the newest release is not HCI friendly.I would like to see less latency and higher IOPS.It lacks automatic tiering, When you use data, some of it goes cold. It is not hot data, so the system should automatically move that data to the SATA, while the hot data is kept on tier-one, the SaaS or SSD drives.The only downside is in ease in management; it is not easy to use.It's not a cheap system. It is very expensive. The pricing has been ridiculous every time that we had to renew the support.We would like to have further integration with some backup products. They have some of them already, but there could be more.The AutoSupport could be improved to be more proactive in certain cases.
