"Fewer features is not necessarily a negative as it leads to simpler operation and lower price.""Lenovo ThinkSystem DE Series is simple to use""ThinkSystem's storage performs well, and the price per gigabyte is good, especially on SSD solutions. It's also easy to use.""We have been working with the solution for around a year and so far it has shown itself to be stable.""Lenovo ThinkSystem DE Series is quite an elementary box, no frills. It does not have all the functionality of the DM but it is acceptable, it does its task. It integrates pretty well."

Cons
"The scalability could be better.""The HPE Nimble Storage could have better integration with monitoring and machine learning system information solutions.""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.""I would like to see an added feature to auto-fix, or a dynamic alerting system on storage.""If they could reduce the cost, that would be ideal.""It would be ideal if all these enterprise-class high-performance products would come at a cheaper price.""HPE does not have suffficient storage.""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."

More HPE Nimble Storage Cons →

"ThinkSystem could be better integrated with backup software like Commvault, Veritas, or Symantec.""The features are limited.""The solution could be more scalable, although it suits our present needs.""In the next release, I would like to see more functionality. But, again, it is an entry-level product.""It would be useful to have structured solutions replicated to other sites."
