"It's my understanding that the initial setup is straightforward."
"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 is 100% stable. It is also scalable."
"This product is very competitive."
"I like that the solution is easy to scale and that's its stable."
"The performance is good."
"What I like best about this product is that it is a complete solution, both hardware, and software, by the same vendor."
"The stability is the most valuable aspect of the solution."
"The most valuable feature is the high availability for the applications."
"The solution provides a lot of flexibility to the application team for running their applications in the container platform, without needing to monitor the entire infrastructure all the time. It automatically scales and automatically self-heals. There is also a mechanism to alert the team in case it is over-committing or overutilizing the application."
"Provides support throughout the whole platform."
"Technical support needs to be improved."
"They do not have complete documentation, which is very weak and could be improved."
"You should be able to calculate so that when it's full it's 100% full, not just 90%."
"In Taiwan, they don't have professional technical support."
"Its security can be improved."
"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."
"The solution needs to provide better integration between this solution and all other kinds of systems."
"The solution could be more cost-effective and secure."
"Documentation and technical support could be improved. The product is good, but when we raise a case with support—say we are having an image issue—the support is not really up to the mark. It is difficult to get support... When we raise a case, their support people will hesitate to get on a call or a screen-sharing session. That is a major drawback when it comes to OpenShift."
"Not a ten because it's not a standard solution and the endpoint protection user has to prepare with documentation or have training from other people. It's not easy to start because it's not like other solutions."
"The solution only offers support for one server."
Dell EMC Elactic Cloud Storage (ECS) provides a complete software-defined object storage platform designed for today's cloud-scale storage requirements. ECS provides the simplicity and low cost benefits of the public cloud without the risk, compliance, and data sovereignty concerns. ECS benefits include:
OpenShift is Red Hat's Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) that allows developers to quickly develop, host, and scale applications in a cloud environment. With OpenShift you have a choice of offerings, including online, on-premise, and open source project options.
