AWS Storage Gateway

If you have a relatively large infrastructure in place and are consistently backing up servers for legal or compliance reasons, this is a good solution. Also, this fits where you may store logs for review in a point-in-time type of ecological view of your infrastructure. Finally, if you have a large reporting delivery (ETL), this is very handy as well as a quick shortcut for delivery of locally generated reports from the servers.

Hitachi Command Suite

Even as a non-IT employee, this software helps me to see how I am using the organization's digital resources. At a larger scale, where Hitachi Command Suite excels, this software allows an organization to monitor and analyze their resources and how employees and customers are utilizing them. I find this is best used when dealing with sensitive information (such as medical records), or with consumer-facing content.

Alternatives Considered

AWS Storage Gateway

We tried Red Hat Ceph Storage since we are a Centos/RHEL shop and there is a lot of engineering expertise on hand to manage it with configuration management tools and automation in place. What we discovered (rather quickly) was that the speed was difficult to bump up into nominal levels for attached disks, the network pipes' size did not matter, and there was an issue with logical disk management that would have added an extra layer of complexity to the whole inception of the product. We would have had to manage a backup of the system to our own buckets on top of implementing the tool.

Hitachi Command Suite

Better reputation to start with, Hitachi appears to have (and thus hopefully will continue to have) great customer service for its products. Moreover, Hitachi Command Suite offered the most comprehensive, in terms of variables and aspects measured, functioning compared to its peers. Other software services were just as clunky, without the extra features, and without the customer service reputation, Hitachi has. So far I/we have been pleased with this selection.
