What is most valuable?

The simplicity is the most valuable feature. I do not have to deal with how to provision RAIDs or manage disks. I just plugin my disk groups, and it does it all on the… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The inline deduplication and compression have exceeded our expectations. The rep from Pure Storage kept promising us 4:1, and we were very skeptic about getting that. We… more»

What needs improvement?

We did have one hiccup with the integration of vCenter. When we were installing Pure Storage, we were using vCenter 6.7, which defaults to the HTML5 Web Client. The… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We just barely bought our Pure Storage, so we haven't been able to use Evergreen Storage subscription at all yet. However, it's a really cool concept. As long as we… more»

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

We are replacing legacy HPE EVA and legacy Hyper-V systems moving to VMware with Pure Storage, as our storage solution. We have a very old HPE EVA system. We knew that we… more»

What other advice do I have?

I have made recommendations to friends who work for other companies that are looking for storage right now to just go ahead and buy Pure Storage. From what I have seen, it… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did evaluate the HPE 3PAR and HPE all-flash systems, because we were a legacy HPE environment, where everything we had was HPE. Beyond that, we didn't really… more»

What is most valuable?

* Super easy to use, manage, maintain; just jump into the pool and start to swim, the learning curve was super quick. * Very good price/performance solution. *… more»

How has it helped my organization?

By using the BackDating option we can restore volumes based on time. It also reduces volumes and maintenance time. Before we moved to Reduxio, we had difficulties managing… more»

What needs improvement?

It needs integration with cloud vendors for remote storage, and to be able to restore a single machine from a specific volume. Integration is needed with other virtual… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The product's pricing is definitely a good value. I think that the license is pretty fair. As much as I know, there are two kinds of licenses, mostly for the capacity… more»

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

We used traditional storage but when they didn't renew support we found Reduxio. We switched to Reduxio mostly because of faster performance. They challenged, big-time… more»

What other advice do I have?

We have already replaced our storage and backup with Reduxio’s converged primary and secondary platform. My first impression was, "Wow, it's cool, I don’t believe that it… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated EMC and HPE. We looked at and considered Nimble, before it became HPE, and we looked for an IBM solution. When I looked for other vendors I found their… more»

What is most valuable?

* Affordability * Scalability * Simplicity of use

How has it helped my organization?

It keeps us up and running. That is the big thing.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

While it has a good price to start, they could always make it cheaper. We bought extended warranties out of the box because our customer has a bad habit of managing warranties. The service for the… more»

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

We replaced our legacy storage, which was Oracle. We couldn't afford the maintenance agreement for it any longer. We saved millions of dollars by not going back with Oracle. This solution has meet our… more»

What other advice do I have?

Do the due diligence and look at the details: the specs of the product and scalability. There are multiple series of products in the Unity line, which are very simple to use. It's met all of our… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We were on old Oracle storage and are still on some old Oracle storage. There are lots of options for storage solutions, but our technical and customer support team's experience with Dell EMC makes it… more»

What needs improvement?

I don't really know what parts of the product could be improved because it works well for me in testing and installations as a reseller. I would need more experience with it as a storage solution. However, I have not heard customers complaining. One thing that can be improved is the price because it is a bit expensive. It would be easier to market and for clients to buy if the licensing were not… more»

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

We worked with HP products before switching to Hitachi. The Hitachi product had everything we needed for our customer demands and we think it is a better solution.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to other people considering this solution is that it is a very good product. It has very good stability, it is easy to use, it has a 100% data security and availability guarantee. It is a very, very good solution manufactured by a good company. On a scale from one to ten, where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate these products as a ten because they do what we need them to… more»

What is most valuable?

* Reliability * Performance * Cost The solution's uptime is fantastic. It's 100 percent. In addition, Nimble's storage capacity efficiency is very effective.

How has it helped my organization?

The InfoSight platform and the reporting help us to identify network issues and compatibility problems. All-flash also positions our company for growth. We've deployed 3PAR all-flash for our core applications and will not transition outside… more»

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

We previously used Dell EMC. We went to Nimble because of space-growth requirements.

What other advice do I have?

My advice is that you bring it onsite and evaluate InfoSight's reporting. The biggest lesson we've learned from using Nimble is that it provides better insight with a single pane of glass. It's feature-complete for what we are looking for… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at 3PAR, Tintri, Pure, and more. We chose Nimble because it was an HPE acquisition and due to familiarity with Nimble products.
