What is most valuable?

It is a very well-thought-out solution with great virtualization. A good option we have is mapping a storage LUN onto an ESX cluster. That way, in case a particular ESX is down, it can migrate (using vMotion) to another host in the cluster, resulting in high-availability. The ability to create vDisks on NFS exports is an added advantage. This is very helpful... more»

Currently, the only issue we have is with our backup solution. We have SnapProtect from NetApp as our backup tool.

What is most valuable?

One feature we found useful was the product's complete ability to integrate with vCenter since all of our admins and engineers came from VMware backgrounds.

How has it helped my organization?

It greatly streamlined the time it took to scale out the enterprise and it completely eliminated the need for a SAN/Storage engineer, with the simplicity the Pivot3 Stack Manager brought with it for managing storage.

What needs improvement?

Until recently, one of the biggest problems with HCI vendors was the lack of flexibility for adding resources. For instance, if you only needed more storage, you would have to buy another node which would come with extra compute and memory... more»
