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

I have used solutions by Dell EMC and they are easier to use. EMC also has cloud-connectivity built-in.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to get support for the process. It's not a customer-implementable solution if you don't have a Hitachi-certified engineer. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
