- Increased productivity: E8 Storage’s high-availability and fault-tolerant architecture allows for improved uptime and business continuity, improving developers’ access to data and increasing productivity.
- Lower costs: Increased utilization of SSDs reduces the number of drives required, saving the customer significant money on storage capacity in both the short- and long-term.
