The ability to pool the storage to leverage thin-provisioning is a huge saving in space and costs.

CDP is an important feature for avoiding data loss in the event of ransomware attacks. You need more storage capacity, however, you get the possibility to return at any time and use the data saved up to that point. The recovery is much faster than with a classic restore.

Having an enterprise "Storage Dashboard" that can show capacity, usage, performance, and any issues would be very beneficial.

NVMeoF should be implemented. This protocol will play a major role in storage infrastructure in the future.

I would like to see SMPA (Shared Multi-Port Array) technology developed with the aim of allowing a configuration identical to other storage arrays.

Right now, the version used is run on Microsoft Windows Server. Having a Linux version or even an appliance would be better as it would eliminate the use of additional licensing for another piece of hardware.

It would be ideal if they were providing archive licensing with the ability to create a second pool on existing storage nodes.

DataCore SANsymphony should integrate file servers at a good price into the solution.
