Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with HPE Cloud Object Storage.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
Canada is not a big market for HPE. They offered a solution called Cloud Volumes that are based in Europe or in the U.S. Because of compliance reasons, it is not hosted in Canada. Our customers in Canada cannot use it because it has to be compliant in the same country. We would like it to be available to our clients in Canada as it is cheaper than going to AWS, Azure, or Google. I would like to see the storage available to connect with other external solutions, other than just HPE. It is currently only available on their hardware. For example, for a customer who does not have HPE hardware, they should be able to connect or interact with the cloud volumes.
So far, I haven't noticed anything that needs to improve, but perhaps the user interface could be a little better so that one could get into the relevant menus faster.
The biggest disadvantage to this product is the technical support and pricing. Both of these could be better. There are no real features to be added that I can think of as it is already high-powered relative to other technology I have used. Maybe the product design could be enhanced and I can't get local technical support from the company. These are not really features of the product. As far as improvements in the product itself, it would be good to upgrade the speed and performance to improve the data access time. Also, we would like to see better security added to protect the data and access from hackers. These are not missing features that need to be added, it is only that existing features could be enhanced to make the product better.
