What is most valuable?

The solution is very user-friendly in terms of maintenance and configuration. It's also possible to connect the solution to other storage management solutions.

What needs improvement?

The solution needs to offer more support in our region. It's also quite expensive. Since we can't get support, it would be helpful if there was more documentation online to help users navigate the solution when they run into issues or have questions.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Previously we used IBM systems. We switched to Hitachi about 20 years ago.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate the solution eight out of ten.
