Dell EMC SC Series Review

Good interface but it hasn't been developed and is old

What is most valuable?

I mostly like the interface of the product.

What needs improvement?

Compellent is a nice technology, but it's not very efficient anymore. There are better products out there.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Compellent for five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

In terms of stability, it's good enough. It's okay. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Compellent is not scalable.

We have a medium size company using the product.

How are customer service and technical support?

The support is good.

How was the initial setup?

Compellent's setup is straightforward.

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

I would not recommend the product. There are other, better products out there.

This system is not a good fit for most customers. It's not only the fact that it's too old, but it has not developed any more since Dell bought it.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to 10, one is the worst, 10 is the best I'd give it a 6.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
