The solution could have a better built-in performance monitor. I use a different product for performance monitoring.

I would like to see three-side support. When we do the replication, there is currently two-side support. That is okay. But the three-side version is very new. I would improve the configuration and interface. Enhance baseline replication and add more integration with the operating system between Vmware and IBMI.

When comparing this solution to others it is running 1.5 but should be on a 2.0 and the difficulty is a little higher to operate at first which could be improved. The only errors I find sometimes is the solution tells me I cannot operate it because a service has turned off, you can just go back to the VM, go to services, and turn back the services. However, this should improve.

Software Defined Storage (SDS)
What is software-defined storage? Software-defined storage (SDS) is a software-based storage solution that provides greater flexibility and independence than the traditional network-attached storage (NAS) or storage area network (SAN). Although software-defined storage can work in and on top of both NAS and SAN environments, it is usually created to perform on the industry common x86 servers. Software-defined storage allows for separation and independence from traditional hardware...
