"There are several factors that I think the Unlimited differentiates itself from other storage options. I love the simplicity of the Unlimited in that we don’t need to provision for an additional MDC like traditional SAN deployments. I also love that it can also function as a NAS. Many of our clients end up having to create unique solutions to bridge their SAN and NAS solutions. This product provides both in a simple to deploy package. Not many other storage solutions provide this much flexibility in options and performance at this price point."
