EMC VNX [EOL] Review

It is very stable even during multiple power failures.


How has it helped my organization?

A hybrid tiered storage such as VNX enables data where IOPS is critical to be placed in SSD and archive data to be placed in NL-SAS disks where the IOPS are not in demand.

What is most valuable?

It is very stable even during multiple power failures.

What needs improvement?

EMC VNX needs to support bigger SSD and the Next Generation EMC Unity does this.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There were no stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There were scalability issues, the scalability options are limited due to supported SSD.

How are customer service and technical support?

I would rate the technical support a 10/10.

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

Previously, we had Clariion, VNX was the next technological shift.

How was the initial setup?

It is very easy to set up, guides are available on the EMC site .

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

The initial pricing and licensing are reasonable, the yearly EMC is more expensive

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at IBM Storewize V7000.

What other advice do I have?

Go through EMC best practices available for proper disk sizing and allocation.
