"Great... once you get it up and running"

What do you like best?

I love the fact that this is open source software, and that it's an excellent implementation of distributed storage. It hooks nicely with technologies such as Kubernetes and OpenShift to realize an entire cluster on top of a virtual & scalable network filesystem.

What do you dislike?

The documentation is literally awful. It is terrible for people who are approaching this while being entirely new to the field, or even seasoned developers; the documentation assumes you have a solid understanding of networks and telecommunications, which isn't always accurate for everyone who may need to use Gluster.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend you give it a try; open source software is always a plus, and once you get it up and running, it's entirely reliable and durable as a storage system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it as a storage system for a network of Kubernetes & OpenShift containers.

What Hybrid Cloud Storage solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"It's amazing service from storage server"

What do you like best?

I always use this excellent service to establish support in development and testing environment for my clients and students in class

What do you dislike?

there are few things I can say I do not like this service, but for testing when you are making a massive load, or by connecting servers have some latency.

The free trial services like openshift generates conflict when services are used in different accounts THROUGH the same browser, confusion is generated in the service and can cancel your account.

Recommendations to others considering the product

it is always important to keep a backup in a controlled before implementing changes in production environment, this platform provides all the necessary support to maintain and control your development tools.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can establish a supportive environment for my projects and perform real-time tests and my clients can monitor it

"Scalable software defined storage, on commodity hardware"

What do you like best?

I like the flexibility, and cost that software defined storage on commodity hardware provides.

What do you dislike?

There is some maintenace overhead that you wouldn't otherwise have to deal with, if you'd purchased a pre-configured appliance.

Recommendations to others considering the product

consider training on gluster before deployment. Knowing what your getting into will greatly affect your decision to use this product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use gluster as a shared storage backend for HA web applications

"Very good, but not the best"

What do you like best?

Overall had a good experience with Storage Server, but you could honestly do better. The options they offer are basic with any service, but you might be able to find a better deal if you do some research.

What do you dislike?

Options are good, but too many options make things difficult. Easy to get confused on what you need without having to rely on support or go do further research in to the matter.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

we are solving our ability to do work, our ability to multitask, and our ability to automate a lot of our processes. we have realized that we need to do a better job training people.
