You will never find a solution that fits all because every company has different requirements and every company will need to compromise. This is a good product overall. I would rate this solution an eight out of 10.

My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to get support for the process. It's not a customer-implementable solution if you don't have a Hitachi-certified engineer. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

It is not possible to improve upon this solution. Rather, they should just create a new product to completely replace this one. Overall, this is a good product for what it is, but it is old-school. I would completely renew the product. It works nicely, but I would not recommend it for the same reason that people don't buy old-fashioned clothes. I would rate this solution a five out of ten.

I am working for a reseller and this is one of the solutions that I have experience in dealing with. This is a NAS gateway solution that provides access to storage that is externally attached.

We are a system integrator and this is one of the products that we implement for our customers. It is a mass storage system. An example of one use case that has been deployed is a CIFS solution in a home directory environment. We have also implemented it as part of a media server solution.

I do not like Hitachi NAS because it's an old-school NAS solution, compared to the other, newer-type solutions such as Isilon from Dell or Qumulo. It is an old-school gateway NAS solution, so for me, it is not good.

We would like to have a more economical version of this solution that is suitable for use with a mid-range scale, such as one that can handle between 35,000 and 50,000 users. The manageability needs to be improved, as the interface for doing so is not that great. I would like to see the inclusion of support for cloud-connectivity to providers like AWS.
