EMC VNX [EOL] Review

The Nimble CS-Series has proven to be reliable with 100% uptime

What is our primary use case?

Primary storage in our data center, and we use it with an HPE SAN switch. We've worked with EMC for about three years.

How has it helped my organization?

It has very simple management with reliability and also security. We do not have any complexity with these products.

What is most valuable?

When we started the process of looking for a SAN vendor I had four primary criteria: reliability, performance, cost, and simplicity. We were really looking for a unicorn and were fully expected to have to make compromises in one of those areas. The Nimble CS-Series was recommended by our solutions provider, and we were blown away. Not only was it the most affordable option, but it was the easiest to deploy, had the best performance, and has proven to be reliable with 100% uptime.

What needs improvement?

SDS (software-defined storage) is so required in next releases because we are going to the next generation of IT infrastructure environment.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.
