What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature would be: You own the hardware already. Why not just throw some drives into it and have a software-defined network storage system?

How has it helped my organization?

vSAN has improved our organization by giving us yet another high-speed data store. Previously, we were using VNX that had some Nearline-SAS drives with some SSD caching on it. But... more»

What needs improvement?

I know they're working on this: better support for an all-NVME array. Better metrics. vSAN itself is a great storage platform, but one of the issues with it is that you have to be... more»

What other advice do I have?

I'd say vSAN, on a scale of one to 10, would be a seven or an eight now. (If I have to choose it's a) seven. But with what I've heard while I've been at VMworld, I'd say that... more»

The solution's performance and high density are most valuable.

How has it helped my organization?

What needs improvement?

The hybrid solution we tested showed a big performance reduction after intensive work on the system, due to the caching... more»

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

Licensing is good if you choose to use the proprietary OS (which is free). Pricing is good if your enviroment can take... more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

That was the first Hyperconverged system we tested, so we did not switch to this solution from a different solution.

What other advice do I have?

Hyperconvergence gives a faster implementation than the "standard" solutions, and a high density architecture. Others... more»

What is most valuable?

Offsite backup, replication, and duplication of data are important for our plant environment since we are hard on our equipment. The ability to restore quickly and get the business back up and running is priceless.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution was an easy way for us to ensure high availability along with offsite backup of data. It has made offsite recovery a faster process than in the past.

What needs improvement?

Bandwidth throttling during offsite backups. When we implemented this solution for the first time to replace another system we brought down the WAN line until the initial data set was replicated. They do have an off-peak time setting but... more»
