If you're an experienced SAN administrator you'll have no problems understanding their setup. It is very straight forward. The design of what you can do, because it's so flexible, is the most complex part. You have LOTS of options. View full review »

The initial setup of a conventional vSAN is straightforward. Our recent setup of a two-node hyperconverged solution was a little more complicated, though this was mainly due to the Dell servers we had ordered as hosts, rather than DataCore itself. The DataCore consultants setting up the solution were very knowledgable and it was completed without too much trouble. View full review »

I had to bring in outside support as I was not familiar with the setup. I believe it took about two days to set everything up. View full review »

The setup was done by our IT partner. It is complex because he also had to set up our iSCSI environment. With Fibre Channel it would be much easier. View full review »

This initial setup of this solution wasn´t complex. The necessary functional test plan of the implementation company was time-consuming, but it guaranteed the correct implementation. View full review »
