The command-line interface is good.In terms of stability, I've found it to be very stable. I've walked into the server room when it was at 60 degrees Celcius, and it was still running fine.The most valuable features are the Self-Service, and the ability to search the data.

The interface could be improved. It should have an application point of view.Technical support should respond more quickly because the turnaround time is very high.It's not very efficient anymore. There are better products out there.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.
