The solution could be improved if they would provide information on the agility of their products, and the scaling of it in order to increase the power of its capacity so you could know whether it needs different configuration. This issue exists in many products, it's not specific to Hitachi. The monitoring tool is not well developed and my guess is that the companies are not investing too much money in this area. An additional feature that would be helpful would be the ability to increase and decrease the size of the file system dynamically and easily. Right now that's not the case. The Hitachi snapshot technique is of course less powerful than the competition is offering in many ways, so it would be better to resolve this.

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.

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.
