Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""The ability to pool the storage to leverage thin-provisioning is a huge saving in space and costs.""The documentation repository is really useful and kept updated.""The interface is user-friendly.""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.""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."

Cons
"Datacore is developing a new WebUI with new dashboards. It is a good idea as the classic GUI is lacking dashboards.""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.""NVMeoF should be implemented. This protocol will play a major role in storage infrastructure in the future.""Having an enterprise "Storage Dashboard" that can show capacity, usage, performance, and any issues would be very beneficial."

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."
