What is most valuable?

Automatic rebalancing is the feature saving administration time, and also auto rebuilding. Enterprise storage IOPS limiting is also good.

How has it helped my organization?

The idea was born from pre-sales requests for storage resources. The primary goal was to have a storage solution where you do not have to invest a large amount of money just to start, and have idle resources, yet have a locally supported enterprise solution on commodity hardware. In other words, have a pay-as-you-grow, horizontally scaled solution, where front-end controllers are not the… more»

What needs improvement?

* Ecosystem around the product: There is no built-in system for viewing history data, such as volume IOPS. We have to provide graphing by Prometheus and Grafana, which would be a good new feature in ScaleIO. * The next good new feature would be moving volumes between different storage pools, e.g., from a SAS pool to a SSD pool. * It would be nice to set minimum IOPS per volume, besides just the… more»

How has it helped my organization?

I just worry about capacity; performance is never a problem.

What needs improvement?

If they could introduce a write cache feature, the product would be perfect overall.

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

We previously used vSAN. We switched because ScaleIO is a pioneer in all-flash; therefore, I applied that in our lab.

Maybe they could support more data types. That way, it would be like setting a gateway to convert any data you want (file or object).

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before choosing this product, we did not evaluate other options.

What is ScaleIO [EOL]?

ScaleIO is purposely designed to be an enterprise-grade scale-out software-defined storage solution. It applies the principles of server virtualization to standard x86 server flash and hybrid media, turning them into high performance, sharable, pools of storage. Whether your block storage needs are for traditional, modern or cloud workloads, ScaleIO has you covered.
