- You can use any type of storage as a backend

I've used it for two to three years.
It had some ridiculous bugs during deployment.
We have had two stability issues:
No issues yet.
It's at a fair level but has bad documentation.Technical Support:
I previously used Netapp's solution, but this was for a different customer.
It’s relatively easy to setup and install.
We used a mix of a vendor team along with an in-house team. The vendor team was good.
We got the equipment via a large storage accusation for almost free so no ROI was needed.
No, not for this particular customer.
Some bugs cause issues but I love the ASIC architecture behind it. I actually uncovered some hidden ASICs in the hardware. Version 8 features didn’t include in-line de-duplication (it uses an ASIC) which was later uncovered in version 10 or so. It’s nice to find out about added functionality with version upgrades at no extra cost with as little to no performance degradation using this ASIC.
