Dell EMC SC Series Review

It is fast and performs well

What is our primary use case?

It is performing well.

How has it helped my organization?

We have a bit more storage, and it is faster.

What is most valuable?

  • Ease of use
  • Reliability
  • It is fast and performs well.

What needs improvement?

The administration and support (on the way that they delivered) was a little bit slow.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

So far, so good. However, we have only had it running for four months.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is good. We still have more room.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have not used technical support yet.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Our previous solution ran out of space and IOPS. Therefore, we had to get something which was faster.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was pretty straightforward, though I was not involved. A co-worker did it.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Only Dell EMC products were on our shortlist.

We did look at Nutanix, but they did not fit into the way that we are organized. We also looked at NetApps, but quickly dismissed them.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend to buy Dell EMC 3020 to anyone researching these type of solutions.

Most important criteria when selecting a vendor:

  • Reliability
  • Support: We knew the support from EMC was really good.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Estamos evaluando migrar los datos de un VNX5600 a uno de los modelos SC7020F, SC5020F. A la espera que EMC nos garantice interoperabilidad con PowerPath Migrator Enable.
