Dell EMC PowerVault Review

Easy to use and manage, good support, and reasonably-priced

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is for local software, which we use for the production of local ERPs that we use on-premises.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is that it is easy to manage and easy to use.

What needs improvement?

Deduplication and compression is an area that needs development. This is currently not on the device.

In the next release, I would like the deduplication and compression included, as well as the flash technology. It doesn't currently use it.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution since February 2014. It's been more than six years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have not had any issues, but I cannot say that it is very secure. We do not use any security protocols, but we have not had any issues with security.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is not flexible.

We have approximately 150 users, who are using this solution in our organization.

How are customer service and technical support?

We are satisfied with technical support.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was easy and straightforward. 

It's made by the technicians, which made it easy.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price is reasonable and we are satisfied with it.

What other advice do I have?

I could not recommend this solution to others, because the technology is old. There are other Dell models that I would recommend, but not this one.

I would rate Dell EMC PowerVault an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
