funny lol hehe,,,, ROI where i work comes in at a secondary level for
certain things.  We get roi back in other ways and forms beside it being
payed of in dollars.  We are Not for Profit Organization.

Well not to far you know.  There seems to be a few people on this list
with a little know how of what I'm seeking info on.  Really never
accured to me until this thread came to light.  

Exactly what I am getting at is, you plunk down $1.5 million on a SAN
Box it dam* well better do what it is capable of.  Essentially an Entity
spends that kind of money, there has to not be ROI in dollars returned
but returned in quicker job submission.  Transaction time has to be cut
in half or better.
