"We have not explored the desktop performance analysis of the file storage, but the user interface, API, and the response that we receive over the file storage are very good. We have a lot of customers that connect to the client-side, click the images, and upload them. The beauty of the solution is that we can mount the file storage into a critical server as well as an external drive. The speed that we receive with the images is pretty good."

"The initial setup is fairly easy."
"It was quick to synchronize back from Azure to the on-premise server."
"Nearline security could be better. The solution could integrate better with SEIM tools."
"The solution needs to offer better System Information and Event Management (SEIM). I'd like to discover how we could implement something like that within Google's cloud."

"The solution should support all the legacy storage systems."
"The initial setup is complex. Unless you have done it a few times it, it is going to be hard."
"In our use cases, we see the weakness in mobile internet connectivity."
