Pros
"The feature I like best is the stability of the hardware.""It is very flexible, and it is very useful when you want to virtualize different storage from different vendors.""Data optimization, compression, and deduplication are the most important features for us.""Its resilience is the most valuable.""The performance is very good.""The setup is very easy to manage and configure. The initial setup and takes one hour more or less."

"The deployment is fast.""Some of the beneficial features I have found are the Block-level backups, the interface is easy to use, backups work well and the portal is functional.""Even if one control fails, it automatically turns on the other controller and everything moves from one to the second instantaneously without any issues.""It is easy to use. Not too complicated.""Good architecture and produces a lot of IOPS.""In the 20 days that we have been using this solution, it has been stable.""The fact that you can manage the requirements is one the most valuable features of HPE Nimble Storage. The other is the rapid deployment time.""The most useful features are high availability and the storage snapshot backup functionality."

Cons
"For the support windows to work, maybe they have to upgrade the firmware of the VSP. They changed the hardware or the disk. I don't know if it was the port blade they changed or a VM for a memory cache. Also, replacing the old target with the processor target would be fine. The old equipment is very easy to manage, and I don't have any bad commentary.""They should look at the cost because there are other vendors who offer the same cost with more features.""I would like to see Hitachi improve their management software. It's been three years since they introduced Ops Center, their management product, and it still hasn't reached at least 50 percent of the capability we require. We are using legacy software because the product Hitachi offers does not stack up in functionality.""In terms of ransomware, Pure Storage is probably a couple of steps ahead of Hitachi, but Hitachi does not rush in terms of features. They want to be really sure that the hardware works properly without any kind of problem in new environments, and the implementation or improvement does not affect the customer installation. They really want to make sure that customers are not affected in any way.""Hitachi should launch some small machines in Brazil. The smallest machine here in Brazil is VSP 350, which can be quite big for some of the customers. In China, Hitachi has small models of this equipment, but those models are not available in our region. Its pricing is a big issue for us. We are resellers, and we face some competition from other vendors. Hitachi doesn't always have a good position in terms of the price. Its user interface is also not as good as some of the other competitors, and it can be improved.""This product should be easier to install and set up."

"HPE does not have suffficient storage.""The scalability could be better.""The solution could improve by having more granularity. For example, having the ability to go deeper into specific IO channels or specific latency issues that can happen would be a benefit. HPE has this ability on their side but it would be useful to have it on our side.""The resellers did the implementation of the solution, we did not do it ourselves. We have ten people for the deployment of the solution.""We would like there to be more enhanced features.""The quality of technical support depends on which member of the support team you speak with.""Pure Storages have some option, which allows us the ability to directly download that host inventory and volume report. We can receive everything directly generated from the storage itself. We do not need to use some other web browser or something. If HPE Nimble Storage could do the same it would be a benefit.""There is no active-active controller, which means that we can only have one controller online at a time."
