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.

Customer Service and 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.
