My name is Erik, I work as Director of Engineering, Storage Made Easy in the US. I want to share my favorite SME feature with you. Some day’s life gets hectic, and it is not just work I am talking about. As you can use all SME features in a personal account, this post will focus on enterprise deployments.

Not only from an ease of use perspective but also from an ROI perspective.
