High efficiency and simple setup

Pros and Cons

  • "The efficiency ratio is just as high as advertised. It's very high relative to other storage solutions as well. The compression and deduplication capabilities are also very high."
  • "One improvement I am hoping for in the next release is unified storage."

What is our primary use case?

In addition to being a data center, we are a cloud service provider, so our E990 is connected to our cloud systems. In the cloud itself, we provide storage as a service to the customer from the Hitachi E990 boxes.

What is most valuable?

The efficiency ratio is just as high as advertised. It's very high relative to other storage solutions as well. The compression and deduplication capabilities are also very high.

What needs improvement?

One improvement I am hoping for in the next release is unified storage. The other storage systems we use are unified, but E990 is not unified. Only block storage is available. To get the same functionality with the E990, you have to configure it through the NAS setup, which adds some additional costs. I would also like more capacity in a single box — expand the space up to 4 petabytes.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Hitachi E990 for about one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a very stable system. In the past year, we haven't had any issues with this.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is a little bit of an issue. The horizontal scalability is not there—only the vertical scalability is there. 

How are customer service and technical support?

They're very professional and up to date. Their sales staff and support teams are quite good. The pre-sales support is also excellent.

How was the initial setup?

It's simpler than earlier storage solutions. There are a lot of things that we had to do in the past, but setup and implementation are very simple here. Deployment takes about a week or so. It usually takes no longer than 15 days at most, from the site readiness stage to completion.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Hitachi an eight out of ten.
