What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is the disaster recovery software. The GUI makes this solution very easy to use.

What needs improvement?

We would like the ability to write to both sites at the same time, in a synchronous fashion.

What other advice do I have?

It is always a good idea to go for training. I would not recommend this solution for somebody who has no idea at all. It is simple, but not so simple that you can't do it without training.

What is most valuable?

The mission aspect of the solution is the most valuable feature.

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

The pricing is expensive, but you pay for what you get. The price ultimately could be more competitive in my opinion.

What other advice do I have?

We use various deployment models; it's dependant on the client. We're a VMware partner. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
