"The replay and IOPS work well."
"Good architecture and produces a lot of IOPS."
"InfoSight is helpful because it is proactive support."
"The solution is quite scalable."
"The management software that runs in the cloud is called InfoSight and it is very good. It is similar to machine learning software that monitors your hardware."
"In the 20 days that we have been using this solution, it has been stable."
"It is easy to use. Not too complicated."
"The most useful features are high availability and the storage snapshot backup functionality."
"ThinkSystem's storage performs well, and the price per gigabyte is good, especially on SSD solutions. It's also easy to use."
"Fewer features is not necessarily a negative as it leads to simpler operation and lower price."
"Lenovo ThinkSystem DE Series is simple 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."
"The resellers did the implementation of the solution, we did not do it ourselves. We have ten people for the deployment of the solution."
"There is a new version of the Nimble and 3PAR systems called Alletra and they have a lot of new features."
"The scalability could be better."
"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 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 Nimble Storage could be improved with some critical application or servers."
"I would like to have more administrative rights, for example, root-level administrative rights to the underlying OS of the storage array. We want more access to the kind of underlying infrastructure of the storage array rather than relying on support. However, most companies are looking to have more managed solutions which is the opposite direction of what I want."
"We want to start storing data in the cloud really soon and we are looking at options."
"ThinkSystem could be better integrated with backup software like Commvault, Veritas, or Symantec."
"The features are limited."
"In the next release, I would like to see more functionality. But, again, it is an entry-level product."
"The solution could be more scalable, although it suits our present needs."
"It would be useful to have structured solutions replicated to other sites."
