We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The cost was the main reason we chose to use this solution.""It is very durable and that is particularly important."

More Cloudian HyperStore Pros →

"It is 100% stable. It is also scalable.""The performance is good.""This product is very competitive.""The stability is the most valuable aspect of the solution.""It's definitely good for unstructured data. In earlier days, we had Centera, so for the DR it's really good. It has load balancing facility, and we're using it with the Kemp Load Balancer.""It's my understanding that the initial setup is straightforward.""I like that the solution is easy to scale and that's its stable.""What I like best about this product is that it is a complete solution, both hardware, and software, by the same vendor."

More Dell EMC ECS Pros →

"It is a cloud-based environment and at times, it is not very simple to use.""As it is an S3 solution with the same protocol as the one we have with AWS, having better integration with AWS will be beneficial."

More Cloudian HyperStore Cons →

"Its security can be improved.""Technical support needs to be improved.""You should be able to calculate so that when it's full it's 100% full, not just 90%.""The solution needs to provide better integration between this solution and all other kinds of systems.""They do not have complete documentation, which is very weak and could be improved.""The solution could be more cost-effective and secure.""The disaster recovery could be improved because there should be something in-built within the ECS. Search and recovery should be in-built. Right now, we have to use some external tools for performing the recovery itself. For example, we're using Atempo or deploying Golden Superna, so it has dependency on the external third party vendors.""In Taiwan, they don't have professional technical support."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Our fees are approximately half a dollar per gigabyte."
  • More Cloudian HyperStore Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "Dell EMC ECS is too expensive."
  • "We are not paying for the license at this stage."
  • "The solution could be cheaper."
  • "It's a lease-based model, so it's capacity-based. We already negotiated the price a lot, but we're still doing that with Dell because somehow the product was not installed successfully, so there was a lot of struggle in the distributor territory between Dell and the environment itself. I would give the solution a 6 out of 10 for the pricing. There's a little room for improvement."
  • "We initially purchased all of the licenses at the same time."
