"Quickest way to get Big Data to the cloud"

What do you like best?

The fast transfer of our large data pools to the cloud. When migrating on-prem DB's this is a life saver

What do you dislike?

If i had to pick anything it would be the fact that since its an external device it does have to be shipped back and forth for the data to be moved via the mail.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you dont want to rely on your connection to your cloud to move large amounts of data this is the way to go!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This has solved the problem of us moving hundreds of TB of Database data to the cloud. Its a much faster route then relying on our VPC connection from on prem to our cloud.

"Processing data on the edge"

What do you like best?

It is extremely powerful to be able to process data at the edge, while not having to change the way you deploy code

What do you dislike?

I dislike that it is a physical device and that I cannot deploy it on the edge as a virtual machine on VMWare or some other hypervisor

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"WHY NO REDUNDANCY?"

No redundant power/network. How is this supposed to be used as Edge compute?

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't use this until they put redundant power/network.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Edge compute in rugged environments.
