“I would like to thank you for the excellent job in both facilitating the order, installation, and migration to the new 8202-E4D. Everyone here at Major League Baseball was extremely pleased in how well the installation went, and the migration from the old systems to the new system. We have noticed a nice increase in performance, while reducing our foot print in the datacenter. Again, thanks for all your efforts in the installation. Looking forward to working together in the future.”
