Sto seguendo una discussione su LinkedIn sulle impressioni d’uso che alcuni clienti hanno avuto sullo storage Compellent. Se sei curioso di conoscere cosa dicono i clienti rigurdo a Compellent ti consiglio di dare una occhiata qui.

Segnalo gli ultimi due commenti sulla discussione:

“We’ve been using Compellent since 2007. We’re a service provider that uses Compellent to provide on-demand storage within our data centers, and replication to others that have Compellent arrays in production for recovery purposes. Overall, we’ve been very pleased. Have three arrays in production today, across three data centers. We’ve got one more going into production for our IT organization (splitting them off of our current large shared array), and another going in production to provide dedicated infrastructure for a managed services client. Bumps happen. But how those bumps are handled iswhat really matters. Compellent has taken owner ship of any issue that has popped up, and provided support that has been second to none.”

“We’ve been Compellent customers for nearly 3 years now and have had a great experience. I purchased 4 Compellent SANs for different companies we manage plus a DR site. Having deployed and/or worked with Hitachi, HP and Netapp SANs I find that Compellent SANs are by far the easiest to setup, upgrade, and manage. I have too much to do to spend all my time managing a SAN, and I now spend about 3 hours a week managing 4 of them. Having a TAM and monthly health checks as a service provides value, is relatively cheap insurance, helps us get technical or architectural questions answered in a proactive manner (not that this was an issue prior to having a TAM), often by the engineers who code the software, and generally ensures that I maintain healthy systems. Compellent support is top notch, by far the best I’ve worked with so far. Also being the virtualization architect I hope to gain even greater efficiencies with Compellent over time, and look forward to seeing what new VMware-specific and other application-specific integrations or features will be announced at VMworld next week.”

La mia opinione è che sono commenti molto positivi, soprattutto riguardo il livello e la qualità dell’assistenza tecnica (Copilot Support).
