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.

Customer Service and 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.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

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.
