What is most valuable?

The solution was connected to alternate storage. It provides great scalability and reliability. The security and the cybersecurity provided are very good.

What is most valuable?

The solution's best feature is its simplicity. It's so simple to deploy it. You've got the VMware, and it's own appliance. It is really helpful. The system is online within half a day and saves so much time.

What other advice do I have?

We use the private cloud deployment model. We're system integrators and a partner with Dell.
