    Accepted Solution

    Personally I like these LeftHand features:
    remote virtual appliance - a VM that allow small site / staging lab to share the same feature
    Thin Provisioning

    Both EqualLogic & LeftHand have some kind of stroage clustering, local and remote sync/async replication.

    In general Equalogic are cheaper than LeftHand.
