Overall Satisfaction with SANsymphony

Currently, we use hyper-converged SANsymphony in our corporate location for the whole organization. The business problem it addresses is redundancy for business continuation and for easily carving up data space needs. We do not use a san as our data needs do not require it; however, should we get to that point it will be very easy to incorporate it.
  • Speed is remarkable.
  • Easy to allocate data space needs.
  • Very easy to administrate.
  • Customer assistance is fantastic.
  • Our needs are very small when compared to what this product can do. We don't use all of what it is capable of doing. Honestly, I have no cons.
  • ROI has been fantastic. Since purchasing it, I have not had it once go down in the 3 years I have had it.
I actually have my VMware running on top of this. Datacore simply makes the data storage available to my vmware servers as needed.
In the 3 years I have been running this, I have contacted support around 4 or 5 times and that was for minor questions with exception of one time when I was performing an update on the system. And in that one time, they were very timely in assisting me with correcting the problem. Top notch customer support!

This product is very well suited for companies that are running SANs and it does not matter if the SANs are from different vendors. It will work with all types of data storage. The main reason I purchased it was for redundancy as it was more economical than doing something like VMware SAN.
