There are specific use cases. For the time being, most of our customers use this solution to foster the natural expansion of the traditional hybrid culture. There are two versions: they can use the hybrid form and sometimes they use the development VMware form. The goal is to optimize the cost for the data expanse, to expand the expenses. That's why the VMware customers have trouble with VMware, because of the expansive high maintenance fees. Primarily, our customers use this solution for site recovery. They are using the STD platform to form a hybrid-converged infrastructure.

Our primary use case for this solution is mostly for various consolidations. The most common use case is for ACI (Application Centric Infrastructure) and consolidation like EDI (Electronic Data Interchange), knowledge bases, SQL server, and other databases. I require a very high IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second) for clients and this is what the solution provides.

Full production. This is now our primary storage and hypervisor (hyper-converged) solution for our primary cluster.
