The most valuable features are the RBAC, role-based access control, and the reporting. NCI also provides a single platform, a single pane with a dashboard, to manage the entire infrastructure. We have complete information about overall utilization, performance, and a forecast for our platform in that single pane.
VxRail has improved our organization by providing our admin team with an easy-to-use interface.
We like the design and that it meets data storage needs.
The flexibility is most valuable. Being able to manage things quickly if something goes wrong is also valuable. Very recently, we had one node that went down due to a power problem, but there was really no major impact on the systems running on top of it.
The main benefit is that StarWind is almost maintenance-free.
This product now allows us to migrate virtual machines between nodes as if we had a dedicated $100,000 SAN in the mix without the additional cost and management of the SAN.
Its ease of use is valuable. It is being used in a mining company. They wanted their working nodes to be seamless, and they wanted ease of use. That's why they opted for SimpliVity. They are running VMware virtual machines on it.
StarWind's proactive support is my favorite feature.
The high-quality hardware options, directly affecting performance, have significantly improved the user experience and are well worth the cost.
I am very happy with this product's ability to adapt, increase, and modify existing infrastructures.
I found the solution to be very stable.
With our four HyperFlex HX hosts (consisting of processor, memory, and disk), the performance is very fast and we have no problems at all. In all of the five years that we have been using HyperFlex, we haven't needed to increase our budget to buy additional hosts.
