The storage vendor says the new program includes: a three-year satisfaction guarantee; a 4:1 all-flash storage efficiency guarantee; “never worry” data migrations that allow for seamless upgrades to new Dell EMC storage; hardware investment protection; all-inclusive software; and built-in Virtustream Storage Cloud (Unity only) with no capacity costs for a year.
