We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
It is efficient and very simple for our administrators to use.For the migration process from the older VMAX arrays to PowerMax, we VMotioned everything. It was easy.The stability is great. It is five nines.It has reduced our footprint in different physical locations.The number one most valuable feature is reliability. I want to go home at the end of the day and come in the next day knowing it works, especially since we have storage offshore.We were able to move away from a middleware solution for high availability, going right to snapshots and data replication on arrays.We use ESRS for our call-home, and a lot of times, Dell EMC will respond to the issue before we even know it.The response time, compared to XtremIO, is far better.

It's actually shaking hands with the workflow solutions much better than any other storage.

Cons
I would like NVMe to be end-to-end in the next release. Right now, it is not end-to-end.The initial setup was complex, and we had experienced people working on it.The initial setup was complex, as it is a complex system and you have to learn a lot.Setting up PowerMax with VMAX is always complex.I would like to see the rack change. They have defaulted to the standard rack, so our fiber cables are crowded when we shut our back door.We have issues that we don't know about, which Dell EMC fixes.I would also like to see a real-time, graphical view of metrics. I don't know how far back in time we can look, but if we could see the performance from two months or three months back, and how it is performing now, that would be helpful.The initial setup was a little bit complicated.

It has to be flexible according to the customer's requirements. It has to be aligned with the customer business and the business environment.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The cost is expensive. While VMAX now has good pricing, PowerMax is a little expensive.From a general capital investment, it's one of the higher price points in the market. It depends on the size and software features that you would include in a system. So, the cost varies dramatically.The cost has room for improvement.It scales enormously, but it's expensive to do so.Our costs are on a yearly basis.Our costs for the product are three million.From reclaiming data center space which is so tightly constrained these days, it will pay for itself in a short amount of time, which is fantastic. Anything we can do to get more out of our current physical data center space helps us a ton, and PowerMax has helped enable that.
