Dell EMC SC Series Review

Gives us the replication, I/O, and uptime we need

What is our primary use case?

It's the storage backbone for our virtual environment. So far the performance has been very good.

What is most valuable?

  • Replication
  • Uptime
  • I/O

What needs improvement?

I would like to see higher compression, dedupe, faster I/O, and bigger drives.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have no complaints, so far, about the stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's very easy to scale.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not needed to use technical support yet.

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

We had old technology. We wanted to move to stuff that's more VMware-aware.

Our most important criterion when selecting a vendor is price.

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

We have found the solution to be somewhat affordable. The scalability seems a bit more expensive than even buying a brand new one so far. That has been kind of a drawback.

What other advice do I have?

Do your research, check out all the vendors, and get your hands on it as much as possible.
