Dell EMC XtremIO Flash Review

I appreciate its ease of use and compression rates.


What is most valuable?

I appreciate its ease of use and simplicity. The device is painless to configure and has great deduplication and compression rates.

How has it helped my organization?

We have saved costs on storage and our users are getting quick response times for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).

What needs improvement?

The only item that I can think of, is the ability to add more XtremeIO bricks as one logical partition rather than two separate ones.

For how long have I used the solution?

Two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have not encountered any stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have not encountered any scalability issues.

How is customer service and technical support?

Technical support depends on the technician. Usually most technicians are knowledgeable but sometimes you get a few that lack the knowledge.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We previously used a VNX series storage array. The array was not as fast as an all-flash array.

How was the initial setup?

Initial setup was straightforward.

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

Don’t be scared; it is worth it in the end. EMC and the vendor will work with you.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Tintri and it was not suitable for us.

What other advice do I have?

Once you use it, you will not regret it.
