Pros
"It is very durable and that is particularly important."

More Cloudian HyperStore Pros »

"Zadara Storage Cloud having 24/7 management saves me support and engineering costs because the storage and computing are managed by a third-party. We are able to focus more attention on the customer, which is truly our core business. Even at 1:00 AM or 2:00 AM at night, someone will answer, which is important.""Being able to scale on demand, and being able to get out of our security operation center, and not having to purchase hardware upfront, has drastically reduced the overhead that was required to maintain our information. We have also gained additional capabilities in terms of speed of replicating that information.""A nice feature is the immutable object storage, which can be used in conjunction with Veeam.""The most valuable feature is the flexibility in terms of deployment options.""One of the most valuable features is its integration with other cloud solutions. We have a presence within Amazon EC2 and we leverage compute instances in there. Being able to integrate with compute, both locally within Zadara, as well as with other cloud vendors such as Amazon, is very helpful, while also being able to maintain extremely low latency between those connections.""It's very easy to expand and compared to other storage systems that we've used, it's a lot more expandable and a lot more flexible in how it's deployed.""One of the most useful features is that they provide iSCSI as a service."

Cons
"It is a cloud-based environment and at times, it is not very simple to use."

More Cloudian HyperStore Cons »

"Having iSCSI over the internet using a VPN, the IPSec tunnel is really the only thing that I find missing from this product.""The management interface is more geared towards end-users rather than a service partner like ourselves, and there are improvements that can be made around that.""Cost-wise, because it's a pay-per-use model, it may ultimately end up costing us more in the long run than something we developed ourselves.""Some of the features are a little bit slow to come to market.""There are still some storage features that they lack. For example, other vendors implemented the auto-tiering feature a long time ago, while Zadara Storage Cloud is just coming out with this feature today. So, they are a little bit late compared to the market.""I would like to see them be a little bit more proactive in terms of the patches and updates that are available. I would like to see more disclosure and information around what fixes or what enhancements are available within a patch, and help in coordinating and scheduling that. Right now, it's driven more by the customer in reaching out via a support ticket."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Our fees are approximately half a dollar per gigabyte."

More Cloudian HyperStore Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The pricing is very competitive and the fact that they have very compelling discounts for multi-year commitments is great.""It is a nice licensing model and it makes it quite simple because we just pay for what we use, and the bill that comes shows us exactly what customers are using what resources.""For our use, it's appropriately priced and overall, it's proved to be very cost-effective against other tier-one vendors.""One of the factors that ruled out several providers was cost. They were way too expensive for the volume of data that we needed and the speed at which we needed to be able to manage it. There aren't a lot of providers that can do that.""The pricing and licensing are very simple and the cost is predictable, although, like everything that you pay for as you use, you have to be mindful of what you're using.""If you just take the street price of Zadara Storage Cloud and look up the price or cost per hour, then you could think that Zadara Storage Cloud is extremely expensive or a solution only for enterprise use. That is not true. You need to compare the entire system. This means that you don't stop looking at just the street price, but you need to consider all the features, requirements, and costs of support as well as the extra cost that other vendors have. Other players just play with hidden, additional costs. Everything is included in Zadara Storage Cloud's licensing cost; what you get is what you pay for."

With the Zadara Storage universal solution, you can deploy storage of any data type (block, file, object), in any location (cloud, on-premise, hybrid - worldwide), and via any protocol (FC, iSCSI, iSER, NFS, CIFS, S3, Swift).
