SolidFire Primary Use Case

Associate Director, IT at a pharma/biotech company with 501-1,000 employees
Primarily this is used as the backend iscsi SAN for our oracle 12c RAC implementation.... 2 x 2-node clusters, plus 3 add'l servers (dev/qa/stg). We also use now for some limited-use VMs (vmware), and have implemented the VVOL configuration that SF makes available. We debated using this for non-prod data for Oracle or not, but two things swayed our opinion. 1) We would not incur a huge disk-space penalty for having dev/qa/stg there as the de-dupe functions would come into play, and 2) we can guarantee IOPS so we know that regardless of what we do in dev/qa, it won't incur a perfornance penalty for production volumes.
