Inline compressionScale out is a differentiator for them, especially in the enterprise market. It's key for a lot of customers.The increased performance is many times above our previous array performance in all metrics. Integration with vSphere features is also a definite plus.The speed and, for us in particular in what we're doing, the data de-duplication.Logic/software managementBuilt-in snapshot support gives us SAN-side functionality most other platforms would have had us license separately.Data reduction and snapshot abilities: Smaller footprint in the datacenter (lower cost for power, cooling, etc.).It provides a full feature set without separate licensing (deduplication, compression, snapshot, asynchronous replication, stable performance, etc.).

Improved scale and budget planning with flexibility of the solution for budget needs and efficiency for growth with the great optimization ratio due to the nature of our use.I would love to see capacity on its DRAM. I know it's not cost effective for them to do it, but I think that it could be a big differentiator and was a big differentiator from the beginning.The interface look and feel could be improved.The front panel of the drive shelf doesn't always seat firmly.A single pane of glass to monitor/manage multiple arrays would be helpful.I would like them to improve the look of the product’s external casing and shelves.The management graphical interface needs more improvement.Some of the nice to haves for us, in terms of today, would be VVols but again, it’s not a critical feature.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available

The cost was considerably lower than other products we looked at.I would like them to come down in price. It is as expensive as EMC, Hitachi, and other major vendors.All features are provided in the licensing. The cost of Kaminario was less than the cost of a hybrid array.
