This product was purchased for our MS Hyper-V 2012 R2 environment and allowed us to build out a clustered configuration that we have never been able to have due to previously unreliable equipment. At the time we were having severe disk latency issues and realized that we needed an all Flash or Hybrid flash and SATA array. The unit we purchased is a Hybrid unit, although at first we were skeptical it would provide the same performance as an all Flash Array, yet it has far surpassed all expectations.

What needs improvement?

I used to have some gripes with how the GUI worked such as folder organization but the developers listened and released that in a new firmware... more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?
