We performed a comparison between HPE StoreEasy and IBM FlashSystem based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two NAS solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"I can use both the on-premises and cloud storage options. I need to have an APR extension from StoreEasy, and it's that simple."
"The most valuable feature of HPE StoreEasy is the storing of virtual machines."
"I like the user quotas, integrations, and separations for storage."
"The solution allows for easy migrations from previous products or vendors via its embedded storage virtualization function."
"IBM FlashSystem is a stable solution."
"The most valuable features in IBM FlashSystem are IOPS, performance, duplication, and compression."
"The technical support for this solution is good. They used to help us when the motherboard of Power Systems broke. Their response times are really fast."
"Installing FlashSystem is very easy. It takes less than half an hour, and I can handle it all myself."
"IBM FlashSystem is a powerful effective storage solution. Additionally, it is user-friendly, anyone can use it."
"This solution is very stable."
"I like most of the features. Its speed, performance, and availability are valuable. We are implementing the data reduction technology the most."
"It would be better if it were more scalable. In the next release, I would like to access some Microsoft Windows storage server features. I guess the newest version of Windows Server has some restrictions."
"The support of HPE StoreEasy can improve its responsiveness. Dell support is better."
"The cluster service is not available in the latest version of HPE StoreEasy."
"The interface could improve in IBM FlashSystem."
"The data reduction pool feature sucks and is not recommended for use with heavy workloads."
"Their technical support needs improvement in terms of reachability for the clients and response times. They should be more responsive and have more online platforms for support. They should make more technical information available online. There could be some kind of documentation community."
"There could be some extra features added."
"The storage capacity of this solution could be improved."
"A big area for improvement is that the data reduction pool feature is not recommended for use in a production environment because it has stability and performance issues."
"The interface of this solution could be improved."
"The pricing could be improved, but I think it's getting better and better with each version. IBM needs to implement NAS storage again, as this is a big flaw. Dell EMC is very good at this and if you compared them based on NAS storage, Dell EMC would win right away. IBM's solution for NAS storage is very complicated. We don't have a storage box that provides file sharing from itself, we have to put software on it and go through a whole complicated process. It should be simplified."
IBM FlashSystem products are enterprise computer data storage systems that store data on flash memory chips. Unlike storage systems that use standard solid-state drives, IBM FlashSystem products incorporate custom hardware based on technology from the 2012 acquisition of Texas Memory Systems. This hardware provides performance, reliability, and efficiency benefits versus competitive offerings.
