    We're using them for Nearline of our ISIS 5000 as well as other general servers. The nearline is great and can be configured with snapshots as well. Lots of nice Avid functions like excluding Creating folders and other random files you don't need to worry about in a recovery. (.lck and .log files in Projects). We've customized our DNA build a bit from what I think they may offer out of the box but it's worth every penny. Also using it for syncing remote computers to the ISIS.

    We use it, as well as the LTO solution.   Works great.

    We're also about to take one on.

    Had looked at Cache-A but wasn't happy as it seemed like a halfway solution.
