This solution is scalable it's very good. With this solution running, you have solved some cosmetic issues. The system is very stable. The biggest issue we have faced is the complete interruption of the network. We have tested a complete site loss with the initial loss of the complete data center. We tested this and the system was always up. This is very good. We have 10,000 clients, so there may be 100,000 to 200,000 users. I am not sure. View full review »

Scalability is very important and it is one of the reasons that we chose to sell and market this product. Our clients vary in range from small companies to big banks that have a lot of servers, so this solution works regardless of the company size. View full review »

We have had it across 15 to 20 Clients. Especially now that we are using it across Red Hat, the Clients do not even know that it is sitting on AIX servers. As far as scalability is concerned, it is only beginning to show its strength in the past few years. We are using it on Red Hat, but still using NSD servers as the main source of storage. As far as scalability, I would support this product more than anything that I have tried before, such as NFS or even HACMP. This product is more robust in my point of view. View full review »

Scalability is pretty good. We have got a 32 node cluster. So, it runs pretty high. We do not feel as a company that the product can grow with us anymore, so we are not going to use it anymore. We are done. The decision was made. What we have, we will keep, but we are not going to put anything new in. View full review »

It is incredibly scalable. You can add more storage to it, add more file sets, and add it to more servers. It is a robust product. The product should be able to expand with us. View full review »
