We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pricing and Cost Advice
Our CAPEX was close to $42,000 and operating costs are below $1000.Our costs are roughly $200,000 a year.The solution is extremely functional for the price that we pay for it. It is worth the investment.We purchased a five-year warranty.Compression is making a difference towards the amount of hardware that we need to purchase.The return on the investment was simply speeding up our entire vSphere stack, which allowed our developers and engineers to get their workloads done faster and simpler. We were experiencing VM snapshot times of 45 minutes to two or three hours, and it shrunk it down to under five minutes.It scales, but then you have to buy additional stuff.With the large Unity that we bought, it has saved us about one and a half rack space. That's our return on investment on our flash array. We also need less Fibre Channel connectivity.
