Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The documentation repository is really useful and kept updated.""The interface is user-friendly.""Continuous data protection (CDP), can be used to "protect" again ransomware by recording all write on disk in a log. You can recover your data with incredible time granularity.""CDP is an important feature for avoiding data loss in the event of ransomware attacks. You need more storage capacity, however, you get the possibility to return at any time and use the data saved up to that point. The recovery is much faster than with a classic restore.""The ability to pool the storage to leverage thin-provisioning is a huge saving in space and costs.""It's a software storage solution that can scale as we like. There is also has a parallel feature that enhances the performance of the storage solution. We can separate storage and computing, and we can scale these two parts of the platform to meet business needs efficiently."

"The solution is very stable.""All of the administrative tasks are easy and everything is centralized.""HPE StoreVirtual is very easy to use from the management console.""It's very stable and it's easy to use.""The solution's most valuable aspect is that it is hardware independent.""The initial setup is straightforward, not a complex procedure.""A very flexible solution.""It appears to be very stable and very robust."

Cons
"The cloud reporting interface is quite poor compared to other vendors.""I would like to see reporting added, such as a monthly connectivity report.""Problem detection could be easier. It should help customers identify problems very quickly because it's not easy to analyze on the platform today.""Having an enterprise "Storage Dashboard" that can show capacity, usage, performance, and any issues would be very beneficial.""NVMeoF should be implemented. This protocol will play a major role in storage infrastructure in the future.""Datacore is developing a new WebUI with new dashboards. It is a good idea as the classic GUI is lacking dashboards."

"It is a costly solution.""User interface could be improved.""The solution needs to ensure it is on par with the industry in terms of availability of features and various other options.""I would like to have this solution easily integrate with VMware.""Hardware and disk failures are happening frequently.""The management aspect of the solution needs to be improved in order to make the product stronger.""The initial setup could be simplified to make it easier for new users.""In our country, Qatar, most of the industry isn't using too much HP. StoreVirtual doesn't move fast. It's not a popular product."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This solution allows the use of off-the-shelf hardware and charges by the TB of storage.""Pricing has improved but it is still expensive.""This product has a good ratio between quality and price. In many cases, it's less expensive to work with DataCore than other storage systems."

More DataCore SANsymphony SDS Pricing and Cost Advice »

"For our organization, I believe the cost is 16,000 Euros for a three-year license. It costs a bit more to do the maintenance on our servers as well. It's also on an HP ProLiant server and an organization will need to do the maintenance there also. I believe the price for that is around 2000 Euros a year.""It costs less than $10,000 for one machine. If it costs more than 15% higher than this, then the customer may change to another solution."
