"This product is very competitive."
"The performance is good."
"It's my understanding that the initial setup is straightforward."
"It is 100% stable. It is also scalable."
"I like that the solution is easy to scale and that's its stable."
"I have been satisfied with the stability."
"The technology is very good, it performs well."
"What I like best about this product is that it is a complete solution, both hardware, and software, by the same vendor."
"IBM Cloud Object Storage integrates well."
"IBM has the most number of additional services, this is the main advantage."
"Dell EMC ECS could improve by having Relational Database Services(RDS) to review progress. Additionally, if the training was provided it would be a benefit, it would be good for our engineers."
"The solution could be more cost-effective and secure."
"They do not have complete documentation, which is very weak and could be improved."
"Technical support needs to be improved."
"Its security can be improved."
"You should be able to calculate so that when it's full it's 100% full, not just 90%."
"The disaster recovery could be improved because there should be something in-built within the ECS. Search and recovery should be in-built. Right now, we have to use some external tools for performing the recovery itself. For example, we're using Atempo or deploying Golden Superna, so it has dependency on the external third party vendors."
"In Taiwan, they don't have professional technical support."
"The performance could improve in IBM Cloud Object Storage. The throughput or objects per second can have degradation."
"IBM Cloud storage is not cheap, but it could be."
