What is most valuable?

The HPE StoreVirtual Network RAID-10 (mirroring between nodes) is the most valuable feature. This allows for multi-node redundancy. If one node fails, the other in the cluster picks up the entire load. I have had nodes fail due to upgrade and... more»

How has it helped my organization?

I administer a 100% virtual environment. To use the HPE StoreVirtual VSA edition, I did not have to buy an expensive external array. I was able to create two 3.27TB usable HPE VSAs from all the older disks I had laying around. Granted,... more»

What needs improvement?

The management console upgrade needs a bit of work. In some cases, it will not upgrade due to the non-removal of other HPE StoreVirtual Components. Be sure to remove other components first. The other issue is a login issue. There is a... more»

What is most valuable?

Managing StorPool is much simpler than our previous storage system, especially having a CLI option which our previous storage system was lacking.

How has it helped my organization?

Due to the reliability of StorPool and the high level of support by StorPool staff, we expect to spend less system admin time to run and operate the solution. This will allow our technical staff to focus on other duties and projects.

What needs improvement?

In terms of areas for improvements, honestly there is nothing we dislike. We have provided feedback on some desired features in the future but we like the system just as it is.

What is most valuable?

LizardFS allows storing data across several nodes (which run on commodity hardware, even inside virtual machines) and also has a built-in HA mechanism. This works very well if failover can be done in a manual or simple way (e.g. by using... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We have been running LizardFS for a while now, but only inside a testing environment. It will be deployed to production soon and it will help to make specific files available inside several datacenters in a very fast and efficient way.... more»

What needs improvement?

Well, if you don't have a support contract and therefore don't have acess to the automated failover mechanism, you need to build it yourself. This can be achieved by using common open source software, but you will need to know what you are... more»

What is most valuable?

The analytic data that is reported using PernixData Architect is by far the best storage metrics we have been able to gather on our environment. PernixData FVP increased the performance of our legacy SAN while decreasing its load.

How has it helped my organization?

Architect has reduced our time in troubleshooting infrastructure verses application issues. We can tell real time on a per virtual machine basis if there is an underlying storage performance issue that needs to be addressed. FVP has saved... more»

What needs improvement?

In moving from the version 2 to version 3 of the product the console was moved from vsphere client to an independent HTML5 interface. While the new interface is a step forward, I believe this transition focused more on the per VM basis and... more»

What is most valuable?

It is really a good product which can virtualize your whole data center. It is a road to a whole different software data center. It's a wonderful product for total cost of ownership, production, and providing ease of management.

How has it helped my organization?

It is all about the ease of management and better utilization of the storage capacity. It is about the dynamics of the storage. You can move one storage tier to another storage tier.

What needs improvement?

One very important feature is the analysis of the logs which should be there in the system. Other than that, I'm pretty satisfied with all the features in the system.
