An environment where visibility of general performance metrics isn't currently done or is done with a system that is difficult to use (which was our case). An environment where resource allocation decisions need to be made (e.g. how much RAM and CPU to allocate to VM pools). An environment where a troubleshooting tool is needed (e.g. to answer the question, "Why is this person experiencing poor performance right now?")

Hitachi SVOS is well suited for all environment in todays world. Storage plays a pivot role in all services provided in the current digital age. The Hitachi SVOS along with their blade proides magnificient perfromance boost which is not comparable to any vendors. Companies which has a huge database should consider this an option to evaluate. In addition orgnization who has a highly virtualized enviroment could also look at this product during their evaluation stage. This product is less benfit due to its cost in an environment where they have more number of physical servers as there are other solution which can be leveraged at a lower costs as they would not be utilizing the full feature set provided by the appliance

Pros
ControlUp
  • The triggers are very flexible and can be configured to alert on things from events in sessions to hardware failures. Script actions are what they sound like. They are scripts that can be created and run on demand or tied to a trigger. One example is that if a hard drive is low on space we have a script to clean up certain things on the drive.
  • Script actions are supported by the ControlUp community. Community members can submit scripts that are reviewed by ControlUp and approved. This means more script are added over time.
  • ControlUp support and sales support has been great. Our sales engineer is always willing to jump on and help us with configuration issues and standard support is quick to respond and are good at resolving issues.

Cons
ControlUp
  • It seems that there is a gradual transition occurring from one interface (a local program) to another (Web). This creates confusion at times.
  • ScoutBees module has a problem with our version of Horizon, so we can't do a login test
  • The local program for ControlUp uses a lot of resources
  • The training session focus on very large environments, which we aren't. Might be good to offer SMB sessions separately.

  • Ease of use can be increased so that SMB segment could leverage without the need of having a storage administrator
  • Firmware upgrade for the legancy storage device from HSVOS pane

I feel all these products are good and have their strengths but for me it came down to two categories. How easy is it to find issues and cost. It seemed to me that the easiest to use is ControlUp and eG. Price broke down to ControlUp and SysTrack being lower than Goliath and eG.

There is definitely no comparison to any of the products when comparing to Hitachi SVOS. I beleieve this is the only unique product which can leverage older storage systems. Dell Avamar can be a great product if you are considering DR replication alone. The DR replication ratio is quite high in Dell avamar. However given that the current bandwidth available outweights this benefit

  • It is quite an expensive solution compared to other vendors so we cant expect a ROI within 3 years time as always.
  • 3 years has been a standard ROI review, however storage solution like Hitachi SVOS are meant to lasts for a longer period like 6 years in my consideration.
  • However, this solution provides a great benefit to make use of legacy appliances.
