EMC VNX [EOL] Review

We're able to copy in more than two data centers, but setup with more than three data centers was complex.


What is most valuable?

  • Scalability
  • High performance
  • Easy administration

How has it helped my organization?

We need, in real time, to be able copy in more than two data centers, and EMC gave us a better solution with great performance.

What needs improvement?

We get good performance from all our applications like Oracle DB, SAP, Sybase DB, Exchange, and SharePoint which are running on the backend of my storage device.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've used it for one year, alongside RPA, VMAX, and VPLEX, all by EMC.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No issues encountered.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues encountered.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues encountered.

How are customer service and technical support?

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

There was no previous solution in place.

How was the initial setup?

It's a complex setup as we have three different data centers, which are far from each other.

What about the implementation team?

The implementation was done by a team from EMC who were 9/10.

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

EMC products are costly when compared to other vendors such HP, Hitachi, Dell, and NetApp.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No other options were evaluated.

What other advice do I have?

If you have a banking and finance domain, then go for EMC products as they offer better performance and scalability.
