"The Metro clustering and solid-state performance, are the most valuable features of this solution."
"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 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."
"The system efficiency is excellent overall."
"It's got full API functionality and the performance is pretty steady."
"SolidFire provides seamless performance across your storage system when you need to scale up. Other storage systems do not do that."
"I would say in terms of architecture and in terms of functionality, the product is quite good."
"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."
"Scalability is something that can be improved because there is an issue when it comes to mixing versions."
"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."
"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."
"SolidFire should start from two nodes instead of the four nodes. That's the only thing. In a lot of solutions, we have to use four nodes, that's the better thing. But as a starting point, two is better. That's why their starting point is expensive."
"You don't have business continuity with SolidFire. I think it could be a nice feature to have in the future."
"The user interface needs to be improved. Much of the client feedback involves comments such as "Oh, it's hard to navigate through.""
"The upgrade process could be better."
