It is still an affordable, yet easy enough solution to use. Generally decent use, despite some throttling down of speeds at certain times. Communication could be better, but generally not that need as availability is pretty good.

If I wanted to use just onsite storage the StorSimple device is already paid for.

Usability

The system is very easy to use and it's use of apps for almost all devices and hardware makes it even easier to manage and store photos and documents. I highly recommend this as an easy to use solution for novices!

Alternatives Considered

I use this product in conjunction with other products to store information. As a storage solution it performs as expected, it's use as a business application could be open to improvement mainly due to the lack of collaboration, lock off of files, etc. However, its photo storage is unparalleled in ease of use and visual display.

Easy to use and highly compatible with our MSFT Hyper-V environment

Return on Investment

  • It slowed us down at first since we went from purely agile to document based then agile.
  • It is easy to use so even non-developers can access code snippets which they wouldn't know how to access on github.
  • It has a lot of features we don't have a use for in our business.
