We are only really using the solution for CCTV purposes. It's very basic. We don't need a lot of bells and whistles. Therefore, for our purposes, we aren't really finding anything that is lacking. It would be ideal if there was a better management interface. The solution should allow for integration with Java.

This product is getting a little bit older, so new features like deduplication are not included. We would like to see the environment updated.

Synchronized replication is very important for MSA; however, HPE StorageWorks MSA doesn't provide synchronized replication.

HPE StorageWorks MSA could maybe include a pay-top of texture feature or something like job replication.

There are several aspects that I consider important when evaluating SAN. The first is its reliability which speaks to how it was engineered, ensuring that's it's easy to integrate into existing infrastructure. Secondly is ease of management, it must be gui based and not require a PhD to administer. The performance must be acceptable and be flexible to allow both spinners as well as flash storage. Lastly is the cost must be competitive as we are not going to pay exorbitant price.

it must be adaptable to different platforms. with emphasis on IOPS capacity and throughput, while being easy for an admn, and not break the IT budget..
