    We just got a set of PS6000's added to our existing pair of PS100's. They are fantastic pieces of hardware!!!

    Very easy to set up, very easy to maintain.

    We have one of those on the way for an isolated system that needs some additional storage. Our primary storage is 2 NetApp filers with 120TB attached. We also have EMC gear but it is being phased out in favor of the NetApp.

    That's one of the reasons we went EqualLogic

    NetApp was our first choice, they were just too expensive for us. I hate that we won't get native Dedupe but we have already purchased 3rd party software that will allow us to dedupe the EqualLogic boxes.

    Thanks for the responses!

    Net App is a company that offers multi-protocol Storage Solutions. I've read nothing but good things about them, but the quotes we received they were WAY more than all the other vendors, EMC included. That's why we went Equal Logic and so far, I've been happy with our choice.
