EMC VNX [EOL] Review

Some of the valuable features are tier configuration and backup and refresh development on test environments.


How has it helped my organization?

All of the VMware farm is configured into this storage.

What is most valuable?

  • Good performance for VM environments
  • In one cabinet, we have many environments: VMware, Oracle, Adabas, NAS (CIFS and NFS resources), and mix disks on tier configurations
  • Tier configuration with different disks (SAS, SATA, Flash)
  • The software for management is very user-friendly
  • Snapshots for backup and refresh development on test environments

What needs improvement?

There is an easy replication process between distinct data centers via VPLEX and/or RPA. But I hope in the future that EMC/Dell could replicate this with other types of storage.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I did not encounter any stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I did not encounter any scalability issues.

How is customer service and technical support?

I would give technical support a rating of 10/10.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was very easy.

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

The pricing and licensing were both very balanced.

What other advice do I have?

This is a good option if you are looking for good performance.
