The features I have found most valuable are the active-active, or so-called grid technology, and the integration into our VMware vCenter. Our vCenter is now much easier to manage. View full review »

SANsymphony is a very versatile product and its vendor's agnostic nature allows us to pick and choose our hardware platform. Its redundancy allows us to perform maintenance 'on the fly' and protects our data from all manners of failure. View full review »

DataCore is very fast storage, applications start faster, and database access is improved. You can attach different storage pool and DataCore chooses where to store data (the most accessed data are on the faster storage automatically). Replication helps us to replicate virtual servers on different sites easily. View full review »

Auto-tiering moves data to fast disk if needed. Works great. I don't have to think about the second set of data. View full review »

Parallel I/O, because there is no performance degrade nor cache hit when there is a 100% update and 70/30 read/write. There is no performance impact and latency is just 20 ms. View full review »
