Cons
The connection should be better integrated with the network to offer a better view of the system.Compellent comes in the form of a component that's not true of a unified storage platform.While the price is competitive, in the next release it would be better if they could reduce the fees.I don't think the solution is very scalable.The cost of the solution could be better.The lower model, the 3000, should have duplication. It doesn't right now. It's only from 5000 that this is offered, but it depends on the performance. It could be they don't offer it on lower models because the duplication is too much of a burden to the performance.
