Be careful of the company. I wanted to evaluate their product for work. I
had a need that I thought they might fill. But, I needed the solution
quickly. I contacted WANdisco, and was put into phone contact with the
marketing people. I could not get past the marketing group. They wanted to
set up meetings to talk, have people see our setup (which would be very hard
to arrange --- and take far too much time), blah, blah... I tried to
explain my issues. I told them that if I can just talk with one of their
technicians, to explain my situation, to see if they thought it would work.
Then I'd want to get a trial license, for a few days to a week, so I can
prove to myself it will work.
I tried several times via the phone to explain this, then just quit. I
wasted more time talking to their marketing people than I expected to, with
no end in sight.
Maybe it's just me. I do tend to have a sort attention span.
