VxRail Review

Makes for easier deployments through automation and improved accessibility

What is our primary use case?

For use with our on-premise infrastructure.

How has it helped my organization?

It makes for easier deployments through automation and improved accessibility. 

What is most valuable?

Its ease of administration is extremely valuable. It allows me to make better use of my time for other tasks instead of maintaining systems through multiple administration consoles.

What needs improvement?

It needs faster deployment of security patches. Dell EMC is already improving its patching method, but faster security patch rollout would alleviate risks associated from known vulnerabilities within VMware/subsystems.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support has not been needed.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used traditional storage and compute. We switched because we needed a single pane of glass for administration.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward.

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

Be mindful of your storage needs now and for the future.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated VxRail vs HPE SimpliVity, as well as Flex, and others.

What other advice do I have?

You should make use of all the products available within the solution.
