What is most valuable?

It is worry-free. I do not have to sit there and tend it, because I have a lot of other things that I have to do. Once you set it, you can forget it until you need to go and add more storage. It does its thing and you can go do your work.

How has it helped my organization?

It has improved the ability of the executives to get proper insights, because our old storage was not fast enough.
