If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We have alerts. Then the lifecycle refresh time came up, end-of-life. Now, you can continue getting support from a third-party who would support… more»

Started with 14x 6110x to run OS and regular data and some SQL. Filled up the IO long before capacity. Split up the groups… more»

Licensing is pretty straightforward.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We used NetApp for a while, but we hated the interface. That is why we switched. When selecting a vendor, at this point I… more»
