What is most valuable?

The features that I have found most valuable are their retention logs. The other thing I have found most valuable is the way they handle the BHEA. Basically the DNS and everything is managed by itself. It is seamless to the users. I think that some of the verticals are things that come with the… more»

What needs improvement?

In terms of what can be improved, normally they provide it as object storage, but they see that as a vendor they don't have the components to glue it. So they allow all the partners to come up with all the ideas. But when positioning, if Hitachi could also come up with their own sort of software to… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would advise anyone using this solution to get proper glue. You have one product and you will be using it for some purpose, but you need the glue to stitch them together. You need to find the right glue. For that process, when you have to have the right glue and you come up with a complete… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate any other option for our object storage. Previously we were looking at the BHEA. They had a solution. They were the division that we used a few years back. We have tried with Sun Microsystems and MFS. We tried that out but didn't use it.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the retention log. The way that they handle the DR is very good because when there is a failover, it is seamless to the users. DR and multisite replication come together as a package.

What needs improvement?

The vendor needs to come up with their own integration solutions. As it is now, they provide object storage that is used by a number of other vendors. They allow the partners to come up with the ideas. For example, Microsoft, Cisco, and… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not use a another object storage system prior to this one.

What other advice do I have?

I have seen that some of our customers position this solution as a file server but this is not something that I recommend. It is not intended as a file server. My advice to anybody who is considering this product is to properly consider the… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did look at other solutions but it was a few years back. We tried one by Sun Microsystems, for example, but it never went into commercial use.

What is most valuable?

Feature-wise, it has a lot of features. The most valuable features include: * Deduplication * Encryption * Version controlling * Support * Tamper-proof data.

What needs improvement?

They should improve the user interface. It's a little bit complex. It does not have a self-learning method. You need to know how to use it before you touch the system. The user interface is not self-explanatory.

What other advice do I have?

The best way to integrate that liaison is to use the REST API. That is the best way. Hitachi provides some connectors if other users can use the REST API and integrate that application, that will be a huge advantage for them. Also, you should have programming knowledge to help the application teams integrate the applications with the solution, it will be much easier for the implementation. I would… more»
