Depending on your situation, if your trial is to find out about the speed of applications and throughput then have the mfg provide a demo and move a host to the array.  Preferably a test host and simulate your users.   If however, your trial is more for reliability and…

We created a workflow using the Commvault Workflow and was able to automate a number of daily processes. It's a great tool and works as expected.

Data progression, compression, encryption at rest, expandability, GUI that is intuitive to use. Reporting is a huge benefit not just space but IOPs! All these features are critical when managing your storage environment.

Compatability with your company software. Such as Oracle. Without this you may find you don't really have a backup. Feature set that meets your requirements. Compression has proven to be another important feature as your data grows. Bare metal restore is a must and…
