We used a reseller, Alliance Technology. They did an initial install and configuration of the system drives on the storage nodes. There were some issues in their setup, and whoever configured it didn't set the system volume up as a RAID 1 mirror for high availability. However, their pricing and recommendation of the hardware was very good. We were happy with them, with the exception of the misconfiguration. We did run into an issue with the initial quote. For our initial implementation, they had only one storage node and we needed two. So, we had to go back and address that. Then, it also didn't include the optical transceivers that we needed for the 10G connections, but we were able to work with the reseller and get those shipped out. These were minor inconveniences in the procurement process. That was the initial delivery. Alliance did not assist with the deployment from then on. We worked directly with SwiftStack and their support team once the equipment was in-house and went into production with it View full review »

Engineering Manager at a tech company with 10,001+ employees
We had SwiftStack engineers onsite for a day or two. They worked alongside a few other engineers and myself to do the install. Our experience with them was great. It requires about half the time of a FTE (systems administrator) a year to manage and maintain it. We do have engineers who might come in if there are high priority issues, configurations, etc. However, the average cost equivalent is probably a thousand hours a year, and that might be on the upper end.

We used SwiftStack consultants for our initial deployment, but not for individual customer accounts that are turned out. Our experience using the consultants for this was good. For our overall cluster deployment, we use SwiftStack consultants. View full review »
