Dell EMC SC Series Review

improves our speed, storage space, and recovery times

What is our primary use case?

We use it for storage for a virtual environment.

How has it helped my organization?

It has definitely improved our speed, storage space, and recovery times.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the speed for the end-user.

What needs improvement?

The ease of use could be improved. It took me a while to learn it.

I would also like to see all-in-one appliances. That's what I'm here, at VMworld 2018, to look at.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is okay, and the maintenance response time is excellent.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is endless.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is perfect. We use it all the time. 

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

We were using Dell EMC servers and then went to the virtual environment.

The most important factor for me, when selecting a vendor, is reliability. I have been using Dell EMC since day one and I'm not willing to switch at this point.

How was the initial setup?

I was involved in the initial setup and it was straightforward.

What was our ROI?

The value that we've seen is a reduction in costs: virtualization versus physical servers.

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

It's a very affordable solution.

What other advice do I have?

We do not use the hybrid solution yet.

I would rate the solution we are currently using at eight out of 10. Moving to the next performance level would make it a 10. And for this particular solution, the only thing I would like to see improved is the price.

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