Quote of the Month
“Being in the cloud backup business we needed enterprise storage, but given the competitive nature of our service, we needed enterprise capabilities without the associated costs. iXsystems definitely provided that balance and then some. We had a great experience in the setup and configuration and iXsystems was very helpful from start to finish. We have since expanded our storage systems several times due to business growth, which was very effortless. The systems have been very reliable and we are very satisfied with the value we received. iXsystems has provided great support and are always helpful. We would not hesitate to make future purchases as our needs grow.”
