  • This storage array is a middle-range array that brings speed with peace of mind due to the stability.
  • The uptime has helped us with making sure the hosts and servers that connect to this array have as much uptime as possible.
  • The negative still has to be that these arrays can't seem to handle quick/high I/O usage.

  • The ease of management has allowed our entire team to take advantage of storage tasks that may have only once been relegated to a dedicated storage administrator. This allows for segregation of duties for a better security posture and faster deployment of storage to projects.
  • We have had several "work stoppage" events from software bugs encountered from the FS8600. In one case having to implement daily workarounds via separate devices to keep the cluster running properly for almost a year until the developers put the proper version "fix" into place. These issues have never been related to the underlying Compellent storage array connections and have always been seated in the NAS firmware itself. The organizational impact of these events has been extremely negative.
