Score 10 out of 10
The Tegile SANs we have are set up to replicate to each other and the second one is for a BC/DR scenario and is at a different site. They house all of our production VMs. Since they are natively able to communicate over 10GB ethernet and also have 100% read/writes to flash they are very fast and offer great performance improvements.
- Fast writes to and retrieves from the disks.
- Fast ethernet communication and full support for Vmware.
- NFS storage means no LUN rebuilding or painful LUN migrations.
- I would like to see every update to be able to be reached via either partial or full updates. In the past we had progressed to one level of software and then found we could not get to a later version from that level, though they did address that.

SMB business Tegile pricing and performance is particularly well suited. BC/DR scenarios are also enhanced as they are extremely good at upgrading each side and failing over for upgrades. I don't know any situations where these would not be appropriate.
