Pros
"The most valuable features in Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform F Series are Shadowimage, easy to manage equipment, and upgrading the firewire is very simple.""The technical support is great.""Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform 5000 Series exhibits good performance and has good IOPS: 300 IOPS.

"FlashArray has some fresh efficiency features. I've never seen a storage solution with a compression rating this high before. It's at least 4-to-1 on Oracle databases. It's the best flash storage for Oracle.""The solution is very straightforward to set up.""It has good, reliable, fast storage.""The latency is good.""The Pure1 component is most valuable at this point in time when comparing it with EMC. Pure1 is where you can have your diagnostics in the cloud, so you can look at things from your mobile phone.""The solution is scalable.""Technical support has been helpful and responsive.""The initial setup was extremely simple and straightforward."

Cons
"The complex setup, ease of use, and snapshot operations of this product need to be improved.""The solution is stable. However, there have been some software crashes where we had to restart the system. They could improve the hardware to prevent this type of issue."

"Efficiency improvements would always be welcome, but I'm not sure if they could get more efficient.""You cannot tag a LUN with a description, and that should be improved. What I like on the Unity side is that when I expand LUNs or do things, there is an information field on the LUN. This is the Information field that you can tag on your LUNs to let yourself know, "Hey, I've added this much space on this date". Pure lacks that ability. So, you don't have a mechanism that's friendly for tracking your data expansions on the LUN and for adding any additional information. That's a downside for me.""The software layer has to improve.""They could add more support for file storage and different types of storage.""We have run into a couple of instances recently where we are running out of space. So we have had to buy some more packs for it and they have deployed fine and it has increased smoothly.""We would like to see more visibility into garbage collection and CPU performance in the GUI.""I'd like to see the product implement active replication for vehicles such as VMware.""It's more multi-tenant functionality in their Pure1 manage portal that is lacking."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The price of the solution is reasonable compared to others, such as Dell EMC."
  • More Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform 5000 Series Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The licensing is on a yearly basis."
  • "Pretty much everything that you need is licensed when you buy the product. Licensing to me is different than the maintenance cost, but they can bleed into one another. We buy the product, and we expect three years of support bundled into what we negotiate on our storage arrays. I would start to see maintenance costs going into the fourth year, but we're not there yet."
  • "The support cost per array is about $20,000 a year for 24/7 support."
