How has it helped my organization?

vSAN allowed for the expansion of our Public Library Patron computer environment into a three-node VMware cluster using commodity servers. This eliminated the need for expensive disk arrays and controllers while providing greater reliability and performance.

How has it helped my organization?

Using StorPool we had about 15% increase in our gross margin and that is huge for a service provider. At the same time we increased the performance significantly. That’s really a major change.

What needs improvement?

We have increased our gross margin, we’ve increased the performance, we’ve reduced the customer churn!
