Appliance. The F840C seems much easier to manage and has a lower cost as well as being faster from what I understand. I was wondering what your experience and opinions are with these two solutions.
We don't make specific product recommendations but point out issues to consider. The Celerra is a very high-end product with the highest overall performance when fully configured.

The price you pay is dependent on the deal you make - it's a very competitive market right now. I'm sure both solutions will solve your problems but you need to look at your requirements - performance, administrative effort, price, backup, data sharing, etc. and see how each addresses them to make an informed decision.
Every customer has differences in their needs so a simple answer (although it is simple for the vendor) does a disservice to the customer.
