IT Central Station is now PeerSpot: Here's why

Hitachi Content Platform Room for Improvement

When you want to replace a disk, we need to start the maintenance from the S nodes. We have to automate maintenance so any onsite engineer can replace it after that, but we don't need to do this on VSP platforms. An engineer can come in and replace that specific disk. If also we could do that on Hitachi Content Platform, it would be great for us. 

Also, after we upgraded this S node to the 2.2 version, we found a minor bug where it was giving us false positives showing that the system had failed when it hadn't. I think Hitachi released a patch that resolves this.

In the next update, I would like to see one new feature. We get email alerts when a tenant is at 90 percent capacity or so. It should have the option to automatically expand if the pool has enough space. For example, if the pool has 30 percent free, you can increase the tenant's space when it's 90 percent full.

This product's ability to track logs for access could be differentiating and still needs to be improved, but that probably doesn't exist on any product in its class either.

The pricing of the solution could be better.

Technical support could be more available to certain regions such as ours.

The solution could use more integration with clouds. We have some integrations. This customer would like to run backups into Content Platform solutions and then to another solution like a cloud. We can see integration with Amazon, however, so far, I cannot see the integration potential with the Google GCP and the Microsoft options. The customer should have a contract with Amazon Web Services. If customers have a contract with any other, they should move the contract to this cloud.

The pricing could be improved. Hitachi is a big company, so it's a very strong product. The only thing is that it should be more cost effective.

Two things that can be improved are pricing and configuration. Mostly the pricing is an issue. And if I were to add anything, I would say more integration with backup solutions such as Veeam Backup.

Hitachi Content Platform is a complicated solution. You need to put several pieces of the hardware together in order to achieve the capacity or the performance needed.
