Vblock Review

It gives us a private, internal cloud and a self-provisioning portal for personnel to spin up their own VMs; however, we ran into bugs when upgrading a blade, but that was an EMC issue, not hardware.


Valuable Features

UCS, brings the entire datacenter system together. We can offer non-disruptive, seamless upgrades and storage tiering for people with higher IO demands. It gives us flexibility.

Improvements to My Organization

It gives us a private, internal cloud and a self-provisioning portal for personnel to spin up their own VMs.

Room for Improvement

There are little things, for example, we ran into bugs when upgrading a blade, but that was an EMC issue, not hardware.

Stability Issues

It’s very stable, no more bugs than any other problems with 2,500 operating systems.

Scalability Issues

It’s very scalable. Every year we upgrade our capacity and just add another blade.

Customer Service and Technical Support

It's pretty good, but not great.

Initial Setup

It's straightforward, although complex too because it's a large system.
