Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The high performance is very valuable, as well as the enterprise reliability features.""We have been able to consolidate storage into Pavilion. Pavilions are our only SANs because it is a bring your own disk solution. When new drives come out, we are able to take out half of the drives in the system, put in new drives, move our VMs over to the new drives, take the other drives out, and populate those with new drives. Then, we are suddenly twice as dense as we were before. NVMe flash is only going to get denser and cheaper so we can make use of that every couple of years by just throwing newer disks into it at a fraction of the cost of a new SAN.""There's lots of flexibility in how we use the resources while also maintaining a small footprint."

"The management software that runs in the cloud is called InfoSight and it is very good. It is similar to machine learning software that monitors your hardware.""Even if one control fails, it automatically turns on the other controller and everything moves from one to the second instantaneously without any issues.""The most valuable feature is the NVMe flash storage.""Good architecture and produces a lot of IOPS.""The scalability is straightforward.""This product is very easy to set up.""HPE Nimble Storage is quick to release updates that fix bugs or problems and the failover has been good.""The replay and IOPS work well."

"This has been one of the most reliable storage systems that I have ever used."

Cons
"I would like to see the management layer improved.""The rail system that Pavilion uses to mount up into a standard Dell or APC cabinet extends further back than normal rails, and they cover up the zero PDU slot. So, I don't like the rail system that comes with the device. That is my biggest complaint.""In our current configuration, we can only run the line controllers in high availability, active-standby mode, whereas we would like to see active-active implemented."

"Scalability, in terms of being able to scale out, is not easy and should be improved.""We want to start storing data in the cloud really soon and we are looking at options.""I would like to have more administrative rights, for example, root-level administrative rights to the underlying OS of the storage array. We want more access to the kind of underlying infrastructure of the storage array rather than relying on support. However, most companies are looking to have more managed solutions which is the opposite direction of what I want.""If they could reduce the cost, that would be ideal.""I would like to see an added feature to auto-fix, or a dynamic alerting system on storage.""We have had some stability issues with one array which has happened twice during subsequent software updates but is due to a bad Postgres database.""The most difficult part about Nimble was the fact that it didn't have a standard length.""We would like there to be more enhanced features."

"The write performance could be improved because it is less than half of the read performance."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This is hardware. They have a singular array that you can populate with your own disk, or you can buy the disks through them. For controllers, you pay for the components inside of the SAN, but there is only one chassis that they work with.""The licensing fees are very reasonable."

"There is a one-time price for hardware, and with the software support, everything is included, such as software upgrades. The licensing of the solution is included in the cost of the hardware and the support is an extra cost. We have purchased support on an annual basis, but you can purchase support up front for up to seven years. We usually buy five years and near the time of the expiry, we sometimes extend it.""I would classify it as an expensive product.""The pricing is better than some of the competitors, such as Dell EMC.""I think HPE Nimble Storage is less expensive than Primera and is the best solution for Venezuela.""HPE Nimble Storage is more expensive than some of the other solutions, such as Pure Storage. They charge more for every feature than other vendors.""The solution is a little pricey compared to others on the market.""HPE Nimble Storage didn't require a license at the time.""Nimble Storage is too expensive for our enterprise customers."

"We acquired VAST Data as a one-time, capital purchase."
