My opinion...great for a lab, but I wouldn't run it in production for several reasons - not on VMware's HCL (this is the #1 concern I would have with production usage), not the highest performing iSCSI target available, and questionable and somewhat costly support. There are other software-based solutions that I would consider for production, though, such as Datacore's SANMelody and SANSymphony or the HP LeftHand P4000 Virtual SAN Appliance.

EnDemand has write - it`s better to use another solution, I would you recommend to give a try to StarWind - it`s much more simplier in use, than Datacore`s software.

Agree to Tim - StarWind is the most reliable among all the developers as for me. Very simple and high-functional tool.
