Customer Testimonials

Sentry’s storage solution has become a crucial part of our infrastructure. We are notified as soon as a problem occurs and our IT team is usually able to rectify the issue before our customers are impacted.

We’ve been able to get rid of a multitude of vendor-branded storage monitoring tools and replace them with just one solution. It’s a big gain!

Even if storage is not always the cause of a performance bottleneck, it’s often viewed as such, so it is crucial to have a tool that helps us determine the root cause of a problem.
