EMC VPLEX Review
RecoverPoint allows us to replicate non-EMC vendor storage arrays.


Valuable Features:

  • For non-disruptive migrations
  • For replicating non-EMC vendor storage arrays using RecoverPoint
  • High availability using VPLEX Metro
  • Used as additional read cache for storage arrays

Improvements to My Organization:

We have see performance improvement in our databases. We can use older arrays for archiving.

Use of Solution:

I have used VPLEX for over five years.

Stability Issues:

We have not had any stability issues.

Scalability Issues:

While scaling VPLEX from 2-engine to 4-engine, you need to be careful with the design connecting to VMAX. In our environment, we encountered an imbalance on VPLEX BE ports. But, we resolved that issue with the help of EMC.

Technical Support:

Technical support is exceptional.

Previous Solutions:

We did not previously use a different solution.

Initial Setup:

Initial setup was a little bit complex when connecting to VMAX.

Other Solutions Considered:

We evaluated IBM SVC.

Other Advice:

Initial architecture is important. It will help you to scale-out the solution easily.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We are a partner to EMC.
