The dedupe gives us more IOPS for better performance

It has a really useful, friendly console.

The dedupe gives us more IOPS for more reliance equipment and better performance.

Two years.

It is really stable and trustworthy. The equipment is reliable. It doesn't break, so I can sleep at night. We don't have to worry that there is a problem with our equipment every week.

How are customer service and technical support?

We haven't had any problems with the equipment. In two years, we have needed support twice.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We don't like the cost. We would like to buy more.
