"There's lots of flexibility in how we use the resources while also maintaining a small footprint."
"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."
"The Metro clustering and solid-state performance, are the most valuable features of this solution."
"The most valuable feature of Dell EMC XtremIO is the data protection (DP) group, it is one of the most advanced features in these types of arrays. The dedupe and compression that this array provides both do a superb job."
"A valuable feature of XtremIO is that, in terms of administration, it's simple and manageable."
"Xtrem10's features are more simple to implement. The integration and interface are also good."
"The performance is good, which is important."
"The performance of the solution is good."
"All of the capabilities of the hardware such as replication, snapshot, and the specific features are all included from the start as opposed to being on another license."
"We sold Primera to a public university, and they're happy with it. They have been using it for about four months with no significant problems."
"The most important thing that we had found when we purchased this product around six months back was its 100% availability and uptime."
"In my opinion, HPE is making good progress and moving ahead with InfoSight, which is predictive analytics and artificial intelligence."
"The initial setup is very straightforward. It's not overly complex."
"It is a stable and scalable solution with quick and efficient storage capability."
"When taking into account the price, maintenance required, and performance of HPE Primera, it is an effective solution."
"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."
"I would like to see the management layer improved."
"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."
"XtremIO needs to be lower priced. It also needs better endpoints and scalability."
"I would like to see the ease of deployment and built-in Metro clustering."
"Scalability is something that can be improved because there is an issue when it comes to mixing versions."
"If you are looking at flash storage solutions, XtremIO doesn't offer any unique features. Most of my customers are migrating their workload from XtremIO to other formats because of this."
"In the next release, the solution could have better integration and if we can host assets on the cloud, such as NetApp has the NetApp volumes, which we can host on the cloud directly called NetApp CVO (cloud volume ONTAP). Dell EMC should come up with something purely on the cloud rather than manage services."
"On the controller side, I would like to see NAS capabilities."
"One of the drawbacks of the model we purchased is that it is not running NVMe drives. Even though they say that it is NVMe-ready, it is still on the SSD drives. The model that we purchased has only eight hard drives, and only the ones on the top could work on NVMe. The rest of them are still on the SSD. Its competitors, such as EMC and Pure Storage, are moving or have already moved to NVMe. HPE should improve this solution for NVMe. HPE should also improve IOs in this solution. IOs in HPE are weaker than Hitachi and Pure Storage."
"There are certain features that require engineering-level access, which should be accessible to storage admins as well."
"We cannot use this storage for critical applications and data."
"The reporting console can be improved with out of the box reports."
"On the hardware side, you should have the ability to expand capacity to larger numbers."
"They could work to make scalability easier."
"The solution could prove the reporting."
