Dell EMC SC Series Review

The infrastructure protection is good and it is very easy to use

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case of this solution is for deduplication software but that is just one of the features we use it for. We also use it for infrastructure protection or other objectives.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features would be the ease of use and the cost effectiveness. Compared to other mid-range constrict technologies from Dell, this is a much cheaper solution.

What needs improvement?

Compared to other solutions, Compellent comes in the form of a component that's not true of a unified storage platform, for instance, to block a level of support can only be done through two different platforms.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for a month now on premises.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is easy to scale - you can either add additional hard drives, or use expansion closures. That makes it easier to scale. We have a broad spectrum of small, medium and large-scale clients, and we are able to cover all sizes of organizations.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is quite good, especially coming from the speed of the technology and support that we received in the past. So yes, it's quite recommendable.

How was the initial setup?

The setup and installation are much simpler now because Dell has standardized the configure process. 

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely recommended this solution to others. However, if they are looking at the unifier, there are other alternatives. I would like to see it becoming more unified in the next release. I will give it an eight out of ten, because I think there is room for improvement. Nothing's perfect.
