Product Reviews
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by I like the ease of management and speed of deployment. Valuable Features:Data protection that is inherent with the system. Speed of deployment and extremely easy to manage. Backup and replications take just seconds! I have a junior level tech maintaining the system!Improvements to My Organization:We update our main pharmacy system monthly at three locations. Standing up a test environment for validation takes just minutes. Also, during the upgrade process after hours our maintenance window has decreased over 50% with blazing fast entire server backups.Room for Improvement:Upgrades/Patches to ESXi have to be approved by SimpliVity and their support installs them...along with upgrades to their virtual controller. That's the one downside to having such an easy to manage integrated console...it needs to be validated against ESXi.Use of Solution:2 yearsDeployment Issues:NoStability Issues:NoScalability Issues:NoCustomer Service:Great.Technical Support:Technical Support is very knowledgeable and responsive. First Class.Previous Solutions:Legacy Dell Equallogic SAN. Needed a datacenter refresh and loved the feature rich all in one SimpliVity solution.Initial Setup:It was very straightforward. Your part is to provide LAN connectivity, Ipmc and rack them. Implementation team pretty much handled the rest including knowledge transfer.ROI:Given we needed a datacenter refresh, we were able to implement SimpliVity at a cheaper cost than replacing our legacy compute and SAN. We inherited true business continuity (priceless)...and were able to prune our preexisting server backup solution. Just the backup solution software costs saved us >$15,000 annually. ROI was instant.Other Solutions Considered:Cisco Flexpod/NetApp, Dell Compellant SANOther Advice:This solution protects your data with minimal effort. Due to the deduplication, optimization, compression and small block size; our replication happens every 15 minutes without feeling it. We have a very elaborate backup schedule that allows us to keep various levels of backups for extended periods times without hardly using any physical storage. A savings rate of over 130 to 1!Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions. October 18, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by It is compatible with vCenter only; however, the company says Hyper-V and KVM are coming shortly. Valuable Features:* Integrated data protection* Inline deduplication* Hybrid performanceImprovements to My Organization:One customer deployed the OmniCube for a test/dev environment for it's ease of use and performance. Developers can spin up new VM's with no capacity or IO impact, easily without learning a new storage platform. And as for performance, the customer had a VMAX for primary storage, the OmniCube offered similar performance for developers at a fraction of the cost.Room for Improvement:The fact that it is compatible with vCenter (VMware) only; however, the company says Hyper-V and KVM are coming shortly.Use of Solution:I am not a user, as an integrator, I've worked in multiple environments with the OmniCube technology.Deployment Issues:No, it was very simple.Stability Issues:No issues encountered.Scalability Issues:100 VM limit per OmniCube (not sure if its the OmniCube or VMware related).Previous Solutions:Customers have moved to SimpliVity for ease of use, consolidation of vendors, reducing cost, improving performance, improve data protection capabilities, and even managing storage at multiple sites.Initial Setup:Feedback has been that it is very simple since it is managed entirely through vCenter.Implementation Team:SimpliVity stays very involved with all installs at this point, minor involvement of vendors from an install perspective.ROI:Varies based on use casesr... VDI, test/dev, production database and apps, etc.Other Solutions Considered:Most comparable would be Nutanix, both solid solutions. Depending on use case, you could go back and forth with which one makes the most sense.Other Advice:If it's a VDI usere case, how many endpoints on day one, what's your projected growth for the next 5yrs? If it's to replace primary SAN, what is your network today? You do need 10GbE networking.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:Partner January 6, 2015
