Writing about storage and our experiences in our own lab is enjoyable, but every now and then we like to get out in the field to talk to end users and to see storage in the wild. Our most recent visit took us 250 miles up to Flight Options which is located just east of Cleveland, Ohio. Flight Options is a private aircraft operations company with 102 airplanes under management currently. That makes them the 2nd largest private jet operation globally. Like many other regional jet operators, Flight Options sells fractional shares of jets. The Flight Options fleet ranges from a small cabin Hawker 400XP that seats seven, to a large cabin Legacy 600 that seats up to 13 and has a range of over 3,700 nautical miles. Unlike other similar operators though, Flight Options has invested heavily in proprietary software solutions to manage their owners and aircraft which comes through no more obviously than their NASA-inspired control center. From a storage perspective, what makes all of these systems stay online all the time is Dell Compellent.
