Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We are using Content Platform for data migration, and it integrates with our HNS platform. This is good because we can integrate it with our existing HNS and SAP solutions. The GUI is also user-friendly. It doesn't take much time to do anything. If we know the architecture and the steps, we can do what we need with a few clicks.""As an architect, I like the management features that come with Hitachi Content Platform because it makes things easy.""Feature-wise, it has a lot of features. The most valuable features include de-duplication, encryption, version controlling, support, and tamper-proof data.""Companies can scale the solution.""The way that they handle the DR is very good because when there is a failover, it is seamless to the users.""The features that I have found most valuable are their retention logs. The other thing I have found most valuable is the way they handle the BHEA. Basically the DNS and everything is managed by itself. It is seamless to the users.""One of the most hidden valuable features is ensuring that you don't have bit rot, so it will go and check every single object that's stored on the system, then ensure that if there's a problem, it'll be repaired from either a local copy or remote copy, depending upon your configuration."

"The management interface is great and you have handy access to several details about your file shares.""The most valuable features are the interface and support.""The solution is stable and extremely easy to calibrate.""The most valuable feature is the easy interface."

More Nutanix Files Pros →

"This product's ability to track logs for access still needs to be improved.""They should improve the user interface. It's a little bit complex. It does not have a self-learning method. You need to know how to use it before you touch the system. The user interface is not self-explanatory.""In terms of the customer support, I can say it's a mixed reaction depending on the country.""What is lacking in this solution is a simple process to migrate from existing systems.""Two things that can be improved are pricing and configuration. Mostly the pricing is an issue. And if I were to add anything, I would say more integration with backup solutions such as Veeam Backup.""The solution could use more integration with clouds.""When you want to replace a disk, we need to start the maintenance from the S nodes. We have to automate maintenance so any onsite engineer can replace it after that, but we don't need to do this on VSP platforms. An engineer can come in and replace that specific disk. If also we could do that on Hitachi Content Platform, it would be great for us."

"Lowering the price would improve this product.""The solution should increase its storage capabilities.""The only thing I would say is missing for us it is FTP protocol compatibility.""The implementation is a little bit complex and should be made easier."
