I am glad to have used SSY. The solution is very stable and performs well. It requires very little effort. What you do have to do, however, is regularly apply Windows patches. To do this, the node has to be restarted. You should therefore always use a pair with synchronous mirrors to avoid downtime.

My advice to anybody who is considering SANSymphony is that it is flexible, user-friendly, and a product that I recommend. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

I recommend taking a look at DataCore because it is a simple-to-use product that saved us from spending more money on additional hardware and support.

As a side note, I use Veeam to backup my servers, including the DataCore servers, and I have had no problem doing so.

While they support de-dup, it is recommended that you not de-dup the storage used for operating systems or high-change rated type data. The requires some planning to ensure the storage that is targeted for de-dup only have data that end users would be using (such as MS Office files, etc.)

The installation is only supported if it is installed by a DataCore certified implementation engineer. Also, updates should be done by this DCIE. If you want to manage everything by yourself, you have to get a DCIE.

Once you use it, you won't want something else. No vendor lock-in.

Maybe using a good IT partner who already has some experience with the product.
