EMC VPLEX Review
We can move LUNs non-disruptively​ between arrays.


Valuable Features:

To move LUNs non-disruptively between arrays and there is a mirrored LUN between data centers, that is to read/write on both sides which are very helpful features.

Improvements to My Organization:

The business continuity is sorted, as the data is in two data centers, i.e., readable and writable. If one side goes done, there is no downtime and the other side continues non-disruptively.

Room for Improvement:

It needs to improve the thin reclaim on certain arrays.

Use of Solution:

I have used this solution for three years.

Stability Issues:

I have not encountered any stability issues.

Scalability Issues:

I have not encountered any scalability issues.

Technical Support:

The technical support is very good.

Previous Solutions:

Initially, I was using IBM SVC. It was a bit different and it was not a true active-active solution.

Initial Setup:

The setup was a bit complex in order to split the traffic and the zoning.

Cost and Licensing Advice:

There are two license types, i.e., Metro and Local.

Other Advice:

Make sure this is what you need.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: I support this at a customer site but my company is also a partner with Dell EMC.
