Most Helpful Review
The most valuable feature is the ease of use. The ability to get into a storage device and look at whatever you are trying to look at as far as performance, then obtain the reports that you need to do your analytical work.
We haven't gone to the extent where we are using the anomaly detection, but from a reporting perspective and single-pane-of-glass perspective, to look at our heterogeneous infrastructure, it is doing a great job.
Being able to immediately look at my data. See the sizing, where I'm at on different virtual machines.
If we were to add VM level performance being able to monitor VMs on a VM level, then that would be good.
It's the interop matrix. And if there was a chance to orchestrate on a heterogeneous structure using OCI, that would be a great start; or at least a plugin to each one of them, that would be a great start too.
You can build those out, but initially when you bring up the dashboard, that was one thing they couldn't take away. They couldn't change that. It just looks kind of kludgy. I'd like it to look a lot more clean when I first login.
Just make it one product, not in pieces like performance and discovery. Stop having all these individual pieces.
Pricing and Cost Advice
We were already licensing Spectrum Control. This was one reasons why we went to Control rather than using the other product.
Pricing by terabytes, not the end of the world, and that's okay. Stop if I want this, I have to buy that. Just release it as a single product.
