Cons
"The cluster service is not available in the latest version of HPE StoreEasy.""The support of HPE StoreEasy can improve its responsiveness. Dell support is better.""It would be better if it were more scalable. In the next release, I would like to access some Microsoft Windows storage server features.

"The solution can improve on the replication features.""No other area for improvement comes to mind other than its price. Making the price more attractive will help this solution have a bigger market share.""NetApp FAS Series could improve by being more secure.""I think this kind of infrastructure is mostly obsolete. To keep up with developments in this space, you need to move all these features to an All-Flash solution.""The user interface could be improved.""You always need a huge amount of hardware to fulfill a given setup. Its deployment can be complex, especially if you go MetroCluster.""For long term partnership in Myanmar, the local warehouse should be built in Myanmar that's something I'd like to see. We have some issues with supply so there is sometimes a delay in getting the hardware.""We're supposed to have used NetApp FAS Series for replication, but then one of the nodes failed, and then it's taken us some time to bring it up."
