If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform F Series, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
This solution is not customer-oriented, so my advice for anybody who is implementing it is to acquire help for the installation, setup, and configuration. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
The main functions in the G series and F series are the same, but if a customer is looking for high interoperability, then they should go for the F Series. It's an attractive solution with several special features. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
Day to day, everything changes in the field of IT. I have done a lot of research on products such as this, and I have learned that we are going to have a lot more data in 2020. This huge amount of data means that you need the right platform for processing data quickly. More than before, we need a platform that can process large amounts of data in less than ten milliseconds. One such platform is the Hitachi VSP, with both good performance and availability. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
On a scale of one to ten, I rate this solution an eight. My advice to others who are trying to buy all-flash storage would be to go and take a look at the core storage products. I don't mean the hardware part, I mean the software part, in other words, the data protection layer. The storage layer is a broad layer. You have the main storage, you have the data protection of storage and you have the storage networking. All these layers matter and you will need something in the background on the data protection layer to be able to get the data at the other end.
The F series is a very accurate solution and it does what I want it to do. In the next version, I would like to see additional features like artificial intelligence and an increase in the amount of data it can store. The storage solution should be able to discover the internet force that is coming up so that you can discover them beforehand. The solution should be able to grab information from what the customer has been doing with the environment and then give the customer new solutions. On a scale of one to ten, my rating is eight.
I recommend this product and I would rate it as nine out of ten.
The Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform F Series are real sturdy machines with high-performance capabilities. I didn't do a POC before choosing the solution, but I did go to visit several customers who already had similar solutions from the company. I talked to them and got an impression. If you have time for POC it will be better. In the government, it is not very often that we do a POC. They're very thin and human resources didn't have time. On a scale from one to 10, I would rate the product an eight for the management. The lack of management features on the product is very deflating. It's very difficult to find this class of machine from other vendors. The storage system is high-availability. The performance is elite. For the system and performance, this machine is very impressive. It's working 24 hours a day. The machine is very reliable for the user experience.
