Why our SAN is superior to our competitors?
First, if our competitors don't share their SAN specifics they are hiding something. Our SAN infrastructure is an open book easy to read, but next to impossible to duplicate due to proprietary functionality we have implemented.

It's all About Speed. Our Cloud SAN, is engineered by myself and our technology team. Its specifications are as follows: Redundant Head Nodes with redundant 2x port 10Gpps cards and Redundant SAS 6Gbps wide internal SAS paths. This gives our SAN 24Gbps of speed per SAS Wide Channel, 2 Channels per HBA. We have 2 HBA's per system, giving our SAN 96Gbps of SAS connectivity.

SAN Volume 1. Volume 1 currently has a total of 20 Drives, in diverse JBODS, fully meshed across both head nodes while running RAID10 across both chassis (this is extreme reliability). With 192GB of RAM caching before it hits the SSD Caching on read and write (so we can do a lot of caching on the head nodes before data needs to be written to the SSDs). On Volume 1, we are able to achieve 1600MB/s read and 1300MB/s write. Mind you, Volume1 is our low performance Volume. We also have Volume 2 and 3 which blow this out of the water, in terms of speed and IOPS.

SAN Volume 2. Volume2 which is our SSD volume can achieve 250,000 IOPS and can easily max out a few 10Gbps circuits. So, to convert it into English: almost 16 Gbps (almost 2x 10gbps circuits) and 13 Gbps (a little more than a 10Gpbs circuit) on our standard performance layer SAN.
