What is most valuable?

The most valuable features for us are the reliability and it's ease of use.

How has it helped my organization?

It's the most stable storage unit since the much more expensive HP 3PAR unit was released.

For how long have I used the solution?

Our first unit – the T540 - was bought at the beginning of 2012.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

We encountered no issues with deployment.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There were stability issues only when we exceeded the operational limitations. We found that the number of running VM’s advertised per device is not consistent with what we experience due to the workload each of our VM’s generates.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We encountered no issues with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

The customer service is very good. We have active interactions with the technical support and development teams

Technical Support:

Technical support has been excellent so far.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We switched because we encountered reliability problems. The cost of scaling out the solution to overcome these issues was excessive.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was extremely simple.

What about the implementation team?

The implementation was done in-house.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Nutanix.

What other advice do I have?

Just give it a try, even via POC, to see how much simpler it is to implement and how well it performs.
