Cons
Usually, when a part fails, we have to replace it and it takes a while. It would be better if the part could be available locally here in Kenya so we don't have to wait so long to repair the solution.In the next release, I would like to see support for Hyper-converged infrastructure.

They could make the mNode more user-friendly. Now you need to configure and add nodes by CLI and it’s not really easy to manage. If they created a web interface to do the management of the mNode, that would be great!.This solution would be improved if it were made to be more compatible with other products.I think there is room for improvement needed with its storage capability. A bigger node is needed.
