"The technical support needs to improve. When we open a case, it is auto assigned to a support tech person. Nine out of ten times, we get an email right back saying that person is off until tomorrow. I cannot handle that. They just did this over the weekend to us, too. I had to call our rep and have them do something about it.""The speed could be improved.""I have not seen ROI.""In terms of scalability, it doesn't expand out quite as robustly as some of the others, but it covers 90% of the market in what it does.""I would like to see more monitoring capability included in the next release of this solution.""I would like to see more VM-Aware features in the next release of this solution.""It's on the expensive side, as expected for a niche product.""Compared to, for example, Hitachi NAS, the solution is not mature at all. It's just in its infancy as far as technology goes."

Pricing and Cost Advice

"I have seen ROI. It has allowed me to increase the density of my VMs without having to purchase anything additional.""Our licensing is renewed annually.""Support is a separate line item. Support is a different cost, but whatever your support is now, that's what you're going to pay forever. If your support's $100 today, six years from now it's $100. It doesn't fluctuate unless you upgrade it, or change it, etc.""The price is a little high.""In my opinion, we have paid the right price for the product. I don't think that it is too much or too little.""The price of this solution could be made more affordable."
