A customer of ours, John Wilder, talks about his experiences working with our iSCSI SAN products. Besides liking the ease of use and installation features of his PS series array, he is using thin provisioning and snapshots too. Here is a quote from his post:
Here’s a real life example- currently we have a thin provisioned volume which is taking up 96 GB of actual disk space (the host OS sees it as a 500 GB volume), and we have taken 10 daily differential snapshots of this volume which are currently utilizing 1.36 GB of space.
