What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the ease of implementation. This solution is easy to use and the interface has improved since the previous version.

What needs improvement?

Marketing needs improvement. There is not a lot of public awareness of this solution or update release notifications. There is no communication from the vendor to advise us of the next product release. We want to know what is happening with Pivot3, what are they coming up with next, as well as what… more»

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

We used multiple products. There are some stand-alone products and services, but when it comes to a hyper-converged infrastructure, the first solution that was purchase was Pivot2, then EMC, Dell EMC, and VxRail. The main difference between Pivot3 and other comparable solutions is the price.

What other advice do I have?

Since this is a hyper-converged product, we don't do a lot in the way of integration with this solution with other products on the application side, but we have integrated with Dell Switches, character switches, and it was competitively fine.

What is most valuable?

One feature we found useful was the product's complete ability to integrate with vCenter since all of our admins and engineers came from VMware backgrounds.

How has it helped my organization?

It greatly streamlined the time it took to scale out the enterprise and it completely eliminated the need for a SAN/Storage engineer, with the simplicity the Pivot3 Stack Manager brought with it for managing storage.

What needs improvement?

Until recently, one of the biggest problems with HCI vendors was the lack of flexibility for adding resources. For instance, if you only needed more storage, you would have to buy another node which would come with extra compute and memory that you might not need.
