What is most valuable?

Regarding InfoSight, I have installed eight of them out of the 50 units we bought, and we have found, with the analysis, bad drives and we have been able to figure it out… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It makes things less complex. It's a simple product and does what it's supposed to do.

What needs improvement?

I want it to be an active-active array. Nimble would be great as an active-active array because then everything checks out. It would give a feeling of comfort.

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

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

Reduxio’s licensing model is quite attractive. All licenses are included in the product pricing.

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

Yes, we used a different product from one of the large storage vendors. We switched because the service contract ended.

What other advice do I have?

First impression was that "it's too good to be true" and we wanted to see if the product really does deliver all the capabilities that were presented to us. It's not "just… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

NetApp.
