EMC VNX [EOL] Review

All the environments of the company are consolidated into only one storage

What is most valuable?

Tier configuration between SSD and SAS disks. The blocks with more access are moved to the SSD disk.

How has it helped my organization?

All the environments of the company are consolidated into only one storage. Physical end virtual systems are on the same cabinet.

What needs improvement?

I do not know, because all products function well.

For how long have I used the solution?

Since 2010. During different years, we have worked with VMAX, VNX5300, VNX5500, VNX5800, and RPA.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Only with a big load in the CPU, because we have compression active in many LUNs.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues.

How is customer service and technical support?

Technical support is very good.

Which solutions did we use previously?

Our old storage was HPE XP10000 and EVA5000. EMC storage has the best performance and functions.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was very simple.

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

With this product, the licensing software and capacity are very expensive.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes, IBM XIV and HPE 3PAR.

What other advice do I have?

First look for many options and compare. I am sure that EMC will convince you.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: EMC Global Partner in Spain
