Good pricing and works well, but it is old-fashioned and should be replaced with something new

What is our primary use case?

I am working for a reseller and this is one of the solutions that I have experience in dealing with. This is a NAS gateway solution that provides access to storage that is externally attached.

Pros and Cons

  • "The pricing of this solution is good, which is an advantage that positions this product well."
  • "I do not like Hitachi NAS because it's an old-school NAS solution, compared to the other, newer-type solutions such as Isilon from Dell or Qumulo."

What other advice do I have?

It is not possible to improve upon this solution. Rather, they should just create a new product to completely replace this one. Overall, this is a good product for what it is, but it is old-school. I would completely renew the product. It works nicely, but I would not recommend it for the same reason that people don't buy old-fashioned clothes. I would rate this solution a five out of ten.

Good interface and documentation, but flash needs improvement

What is our primary use case?

We were using the solution for storing data. Recently we were having problems not being able to do a flash when we attempted. We will need to relay to IBM the challenges with taking the flash. Once this problem is resolved, we can do a better comparison with other solutions.

Pros and Cons

  • "When it comes to the interface of the solution we did not encounter any challenges. Additionally, the solution has good documentation."
  • "We had issues when attempting to do a flash, we hope to resolve it soon."

What other advice do I have?

I rate IBM FlashSystem a seven out of ten.
