VxRail Review

Good integration, straightforward installation, and feature rich


What is our primary use case?

We are using this solution for our business-critical application.

How has it helped my organization?

VxRail solution provides hassles free deployment for small IT team. It also provided High Availability and Scalability for future extensions.

What is most valuable?

I have found that the professional deployment services from Dell EMC, monitoring Services likes Secure Remote services , and the many others services such as patch updates. Additionally, the deployment team has demonstrated the best practice approach for the appliances.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the solution for one month.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is quite efficient for scaling horizontal  but will a bit difficult to expand vertical where on the certified engineer can authorized. For example, increasing RAM and storage.

How was the initial setup?

The installation was straightforward and took approximately five days to implement the whole stack.

What about the implementation team?

We used Dell EMC team together with local vendor team to implement the solution and we have two engineers to do the maintenance. Their knowledge and skills are outstanding.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There is a license required for this solution.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others. This solution is for people who want to simplify the whole virtual data center. Initially, if you want to use virtual data center, you need to buy hardware and the license separately. After combining everything together, if anything happened to each product, you need to do a lot of troubleshooting and communicate with different parties . With this solution, it is quite straightforward. You can have a deployment team come and install it for you within a week if you provide the correct configuration. This will save you a lot of time.

I rate VxRail an eight out of ten.
