Cons
It takes a very long time to enter the management console, as well as to restart the system, and these are things that should be improved.Technical support could be improved for this solution.The solution needs a simpler licensing theme around the DM series. The problem is if you only need one of the features, you still have to buy the whole thing. The licensing needs to be more granular or flexible so you have the option to only license FlexCone or Inline Compression features.

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.
