Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The ability to pool the storage to leverage thin-provisioning is a huge saving in space and costs.""The DataCore system has been rock solid since we have been using it - from 2007 on.""The solution's most valuable feature is its versatility, with there being support for all new hardware technologies and platforms, disc mirroring and very effective auto tiering.""The most useful feature of SANsymphony is that it's able to manage any brand of block storage.""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 documentation repository is really useful and kept updated.""The most valuable feature of DataCore SANsymphony SDS is its high availability. This solution also exhibits good performance and has high stability.""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."

Cons
"Problem detection could be easier. It should help customers identify problems very quickly because it's not easy to analyze on the platform today.""The solution could be better packaged and marketed.""The cloud reporting interface is quite poor compared to other vendors.""If it could integrate to a cloud gateway, then we could carry it directly to storage, instead of having middleware in between the storage and the cloud.""It would be ideal if they were providing archive licensing with the ability to create a second pool on existing storage nodes.""NVMeoF should be implemented. This protocol will play a major role in storage infrastructure in the future.""Right now, the version used is run on Microsoft Windows Server. Having a Linux version or even an appliance would be better as it would eliminate the use of additional licensing for another piece of hardware.""Having an enterprise "Storage Dashboard" that can show capacity, usage, performance, and any issues would be very beneficial."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "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."
  • "This solution allows the use of off-the-shelf hardware and charges by the TB of storage."
  • "The solution is cost effective."
  • "We have licensing costs on a yearly basis. They charge per terabyte, so in terms of cost, it can be very costly. They have three different features, and you have to pay extra for those."
