"Increasing the IOPS and throughput values would make the product even better. Improving the scalability of HPE Primera is also recommended."
"On the controller side, I would like to see NAS capabilities."
"We used to receive hardware errors a lot of times. The ambient temperatures rise rate was approximately 35 to 55 degrees, but when it was approximately 27 or 28, we used to get errors a lot."
"We cannot use this storage for critical applications and data."
"The solution could improve by having better integration."
"We did experience a little latency with this solution."
"Technical support could be more helpful."
