The features I have found most valuable are the active-active, or so-called grid technology, and the integration into our VMware-vCenter.

I'd have to say that the biggest improvement gained by using SANsymphony has to be the performance of the product.

The most valuable feature for us is that we can adjust the size of the storage very easily, without stopping production.

I think an easier way to open a service call, right through the DataCore GUI, would be an improvement, especially when there is an urgent issue.

I would like for it to improve into a more ergonomic management console and a translation into the French language. It should have some process for a shutdown of a VM properly in case of a problem.

I think the performance reporting can be improved by adding historical statistics into a database for the purpose of comparing.
