I think the user interface could be improved as well as the general ease of use. You're not looking to spend tens of thousands of dollars on these applications. What you're trying to do is simplify things.

In our country, Qatar, most of the industry isn't using too much HP. StoreVirtual doesn't move fast. It's not a popular product. A virtualization platform should be added to this platform. It's not an active-active cluster. It's active-passive cluster. The customers are looking for active-active features in their storage solution. The solution should offer this.

The management aspect of the solution needs to be improved in order to make the product stronger.

As for features that can be improved, it is a costly solution. Maybe upgrading to the new model is better. Additionally, it could be more scalable, the scalability can be more loaded. Lastly, it could use SD to rehash hybrid storage.

The challenge we have right now is that the product reaches its end of life in October of 2022. They should continue producing this solution. The initial setup could be simplified to make it easier for new users. The solution should offer a simpler network setup. The product's interface is a bit dated. They should refresh its design.

I'm not sure if HP is integrating various platforms and coming out with newer options on this solution. It needs to be upgraded from time to time. There are some upgrades which are due to take in new features. The solution needs to ensure it is on par with the industry in terms of availability of features and various other options.

One of the areas that need improvement is the consolidated management platform, to manage all of the nodes from one place and the licensing around that. There is an issue that I have found with many hyper-converged solutions or systems that you build out into a hyper-converged platform, which is that the management interface is not always consolidated on-site.

I would like to have this solution easily integrate with VMware.

Hardware and disk failures are happening frequently.

There is no next release. The product is coming to end-of-life in the next three years.
