Dell EMC Unity XT Review

Seamless data migration from VNX, and VDI performance is very good

What is our primary use case?

Lately, the biggest use I've seen is around VDI and data migrations - migrating from the old VNX platform onto a new Unity.

So far so good. Everybody has been very happy with it. It has been a very seamless transition. The performance, from a VDI perspective, has been very good. They are very happy with it.

What is most valuable?

  • Ease of use
  • Ease of management
  • Ease of deployment
  • The GUI is very user-friendly.

What needs improvement?

I don't see a lot of room for improvement. Perhaps if they added more 10GB ports to the back of the system, so you have more IOPS out of the box itself to the network, that would help. But other than that it's a great platform.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is awesome. It is very stable. No issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues with scalability. It is very good.

How is customer service and technical support?

Our customers have only had to use technical support for replacing drives and things like that. When they do, they are able to get through to the right people and get the help they need.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very straightforward. Very easy.

What other advice do I have?

Definitely do it.
