"For us, the greatest aspect of the solution is the fact that it just runs.

"We primarily use the solution for keeping our information reliable... It is amazingly resilient. That's very important to us, because we are basically, with some exceptions, have a 24/7 operation.

"The newer features will be able to do things without interrupting the user experience, such as moving volumes on the fly, as well as adding and removing nodes to the clusters. That general set of features is pretty important to us."
