Dell EMC Unity XT Review

Its compression is making a difference towards the amount of hardware that we need to purchase


What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is for our data center and hypervisor cluster.

How has it helped my organization?

We can get almost real-time response times.

We are just getting ready to leverage Cloud Tier.

What is most valuable?

Deduplication is the biggest thing for our company.

It is easy to use.

Compression is making a difference towards the amount of hardware that we need to purchase.

We love our snapshots and the CloudIQ function is great.

What needs improvement?

I don't think we are really pushing our Unity, which we have discussed with Dell EMC.

I would like them to continue to build on the solution and expand on the functionality, like replication.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been with the company for a little over the year maintaining the product.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Our hypervisor cluster hasĀ 13 nodes. We have some file level and front-endĀ services.

We leverage the iSCSI and Fibre Channel functionalities for scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

Dell EMC technical support is pretty quick.
