Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The initial setup is very straightforward. It's not overly complex.""HPE Primera has good integration. All the users are using HP servers and some systems, such as Synergy, which integrate well into the solution.""HPE Primera is scalable.""The performance of the solution is good.""HPE Primera is an all-flash storage product that's very stable and has a higher storage capacity. It can also give better ROI compared to NetApp.""The high availability was most valuable because they come with what's called 100% data availability. With special terms, they license and guarantee 100% data availability. That was probably one of the key features or components that HPE was offering with that model.""It is a stable and scalable solution with quick and efficient storage capability.""There has been a lot of changes in HPE Primera OS, and most of the time any package related to it is simple to upgrade. It does not require any support for the operation. The customer can easily deploy any code directly from the GUI which is very good. Additionally, we have individual storage we can allocate and easily manage."

Cons
"The solution could prove the reporting.""They could work to make scalability easier.""There are certain features that require engineering-level access, which should be accessible to storage admins as well.""The interface needs to be more user-friendly in that sense that installation and management are still a bit on the high end.""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.""I would like to see the next generation all-flash, which could be combined.""Could have a more stable, lighter Metro and better logging system.""The administration should be simplified because there are a large number of options that make it too complicated, and the customers can get confused.""I would like to see more iterations and direct integration with other solutions.""In the future release, Huawei OceanStor should improve on what they already have. It is a good solution."
