Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"This product is very easy to set up.""HPE Nimble Storage uses the InfoSight platform and it is useful because we can identify the faults and can analyze the performance. It has many other features. This feature is the best that I have observed from HPE Nimble Storage.""The replay and IOPS work well.""The most valuable features are the duplication and compression traffic. We have second storage that we can use for the synchronization of data between the data centers.""The most valuable feature is the management of Nimble Storage, InfoSight. This is like a cloud. That's really a very nice feature. I think that's the only reason to buy Nimble Storage.""InfoSight - analytics sight that collects data for all Nimble arrays deployed""I have found the convergence rate and deduplication the most valuable features.""The performance and the processor are good."

Cons
"We want to start storing data in the cloud really soon and we are looking at options.""You could argue that it would be preferable if everything were cheaper in order to save taxpayer money.""There is a new version of the Nimble and 3PAR systems called Alletra and they have a lot of new features.""The dashboard can be improved.""We are doing a hybrid and are moving some machines to Microsoft Azure to run in hybrid mode. We are checking the availability of extra software-defined storage so that we can configure it.""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.""HPE does not have suffficient storage.""We have had some stability issues with one array which has happened twice during subsequent software updates but is due to a bad Postgres database."

"The user interface of Huawei OceanStor Dorado could be more user-friendly. Other solutions, such as EMC, have a better user interface.""There are some limitations to this product because they do not have unified storage.""The product could always be faster.""I would really like to see Heterogeneous Storage Virtualization in a future release.""The data compression and deduplication ratio of Huawei OceanStor Dorado is not as good as other solutions, such as EMC and Pure Storage. It is important when looking at capacity effectiveness.""Huawei OceanStor Dorado could improve the integration, there have been some compatibility issues with some operating system functions.""Huawei OceanStor Dorado could improve by having a multi-tier cloud option and additional protocols""It should have easy connectivity with the AIX, however, I've found that with AIX, it has some issues and due to this, we need to remove the exact fiber card sometimes and then plug it in again so that it can connect with the AIX systems."
