Customer profile: Ohio Health 8 award-winning hospitals built around you  Capacity views, trending analysis = next purchase decision  Online help was extensive with WIKI features “I have used ControlCenter for many years and ProSphere’s capacity views are extensive, give me everything I need to understand what is provisioned, and with the trending capability clearly shows when I need to make the next storage purchase.” - Rich Crompton, Storage Administrator Ohio Health

51 51© Copyright 2012 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. Customer profile: Saint Raphael Fourth largest hospital in Connecticut  Capacity views, trending analysis = next purchase decision  Much easier than ControlCenter to deploy and discover “I have used ControlCenter for many years and ProSphere’s user interface was much nicer than I anticipated. The capacity views are extensive, they let me know exactly what I have, how it’s used, and with the trending analysis clearly shows when I need to make the next storage purchase.” - George Nye, Storage Administrator Hospital of Saint Raphael
