"The high performance is very valuable, as well as the enterprise reliability features."
"There's lots of flexibility in how we use the resources while also maintaining a small footprint."
"We have been able to consolidate storage into Pavilion. Pavilions are our only SANs because it is a bring your own disk solution. When new drives come out, we are able to take out half of the drives in the system, put in new drives, move our VMs over to the new drives, take the other drives out, and populate those with new drives. Then, we are suddenly twice as dense as we were before. NVMe flash is only going to get denser and cheaper so we can make use of that every couple of years by just throwing newer disks into it at a fraction of the cost of a new SAN."
"The most valuable feature is data mirroring."
"The management software that runs in the cloud is called InfoSight and it is very good. It is similar to machine learning software that monitors your hardware."
"The replay and IOPS work well."
"The solution runs pretty fast."
"The deduplication and compression capabilities are powerful."
"I have found the convergence rate and deduplication the most valuable features."
"The scalability is straightforward."
"This product is very easy to set up."
"I would say in terms of architecture and in terms of functionality, the product is quite good."
"The system efficiency is excellent overall."
"SolidFire provides seamless performance across your storage system when you need to scale up. Other storage systems do not do that."
"The most valuable feature is the performance, as well as how you manage performance on the system."
"The dashboard is such that you don't need to be a storage expert to administer it."
"It's got full API functionality and the performance is pretty steady."
"The rail system that Pavilion uses to mount up into a standard Dell or APC cabinet extends further back than normal rails, and they cover up the zero PDU slot. So, I don't like the rail system that comes with the device. That is my biggest complaint."
"In our current configuration, we can only run the line controllers in high availability, active-standby mode, whereas we would like to see active-active implemented."
"I would like to see the management layer improved."
"The HPE Nimble Storage could have better integration with monitoring and machine learning system information solutions."
"The solution could improve by having more granularity. For example, having the ability to go deeper into specific IO channels or specific latency issues that can happen would be a benefit. HPE has this ability on their side but it would be useful to have it on our side."
"The most difficult part about Nimble was the fact that it didn't have a standard length."
"The solution requires a higher availability."
"The stability can be improved."
"The quality of technical support depends on which member of the support team you speak with."
"There is no active-active controller, which means that we can only have one controller online at a time."
"The solution needs to be an active-active controller."
"The inclusion of more protocols and interfaces would make it easier to integrate with other products."
"You don't have business continuity with SolidFire. I think it could be a nice feature to have in the future."
"SolidFire should start from two nodes instead of the four nodes. That's the only thing. In a lot of solutions, we have to use four nodes, that's the better thing. But as a starting point, two is better. That's why their starting point is expensive."
"The upgrade process could be better."
"The technical support is really bad and has to be improved."
"The user interface needs to be improved. Much of the client feedback involves comments such as "Oh, it's hard to navigate through.""
