Dell EMC XtremIO Flash Review

The stability needs improvement. And, it is expensive as you scale.


What is our primary use case?

The performance very good, and the use case is actually we decided to have all flash a couple years ago and Xtreme IO was one of the vendors that your EMC partner reccomended so there was no discussion of what kind of storage we would buy.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are:

  • Complete performance
  • Ease of use

What needs improvement?

The stability of the product needs improvement.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I am not too impressed with XtremeIO because we had a major failure.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is very expensive to scale. You have to buy an additional system to extend from one disc, for instance. It is scalable, but extremely expensive to do so.

How is customer service and technical support?

The technical support was very good, but since the merger with Dell, it is very bad. It went from very good to very bad.

How was the initial setup?

It was very easy and straightforward to setup. We plugged it in, connected, and then started. Simple. Our technical team had no problem with it.

What about the implementation team?

When choosing a vendor, we we value known companies, as a solution. In addition, we value Blue technology.

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

It is expensive if you need to increase scalability.
