Easy to implement, good technical support, and easy to understand

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case for this product is as a recovery solution in our data center. The deployment model we are using is on-premises.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the ease of implementation."
  • "In the next release, I would like to see compatibility and support for critical applications, like SAP."

What other advice do I have?

Since this is a hyper-converged product, we don't do a lot in the way of integration with this solution with other products on the application side, but we have integrated with Dell Switches, character switches, and it was competitively fine. We are partners, gold partners with Microsoft and we do Azure migrations for software. My advice for anybody implementing this solution is to try to keep it simple and don't try to complicate things. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
