The most valuable feature for us is the combining of HA and SnapMirror.This solution provides us with easy management and great vendor support.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. Therefore, it is very easy to automate it.Using the built-in Snapshots and SnapMirror technology, we were able to have better working data protection locally and off-site.The storage efficiency provided a maximum savings in our storage utilization.

Cons
I would like to see more web support.

Currently, the newest release is not HCI friendly.Dedicated storage efficiency accelerators could improve the overall performance of the system.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.

It is a rather expensive program.

The scalability is pretty good, but it's too expensive.The price, compared to competitors, is quite high.Cost effective storage for all performance levels (including all-flash).The only area that could be improved is to lower prices for their All Flash FAS.The price it not low, but comparing features to other vendors, the price can be balanced.There are products available in market with comparatively lower costs.
