We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The setup is straightforward."
"One time, we had a drive fail and we were notified before we even saw it on the device."
"The solution is stable."
"Performance-wise it's high speed. It's also more stable and scalable."
"This solution is easy to use."
"The solution has a wide variety of valuable features. The data progression works well. We use the snapshot functionality quite a bit and really like it."
"In terms of stability, it's good enough. It's okay."
"They have a feature called Live Migrate; it's been very, very useful."
"This is a good product with high capabilities and high reliability."
"The performance was decent."
"Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G Series is a very stable device."
"It's best features are its reliability and stability."
"The active-active option seemed to be working well and overall, it was a solid product."
"We have many different types of replication, such as remote and drop local replication. All these features and licenses are already available. These are basic features available in the current model. Additionally, the performance has been good in our experience."
"It is robust. It doesn't need too much troubleshooting. It is a good device."
"The interface could be improved. It should have an application point of view."
"In some customer cases, customers experienced more performance or latency."
"The initial setup is somewhat complex and should be made simpler to do."
"While there's always room for improvement in everything, I can't really think of a specific feature of the solution that requires immediate attention."
"Technical support should respond more quickly because the turnaround time is very high."
"It's not very efficient anymore. There are better products out there."
"This product should be a lot more user-friendly."
"Dell could improve the upgrading process."
"The snapshot and clone operation functions can be made easier."
"We have not been able to procure more discs for upcoming projects and this has been a problem for us. Not having additional storage is going to be an issue. The solution is at its end of life and will be replaced soon."
"I would like to see an audit account set up such that the user can log in, see the configuration, and see the logs, but they cannot make any changes."
"A better user interface would be an improvement."
"It seemed like every time we turned around it was a statement of work and we'd have to pay for something that our previous vendors would not have billed us for."
"In terms of what could be improved, it could use a better, faster web console and other consoles. It is so boring waiting, waiting and waiting for it to refresh."
"We moved away from this product because we were looking for an all-flash solution, and with our G1500 at the time, perhaps two years ago, they were just proposing more of the same technology."
"Support typically depends on the array. It can range anywhere from $7,000 to a couple of hundred thousand dollars."
"Pricing depends on varying life cycles."
"The pricing of Dell EMC Compellent is competitive."
"This product is too expensive compared to others, and I don't see any value in using it."
"The price of the solution is reasonable. However, I have not done extensive comparative research on the price. If you want to upgrade the size of the disc you will need to purchase a license that accounts for the size."
"The cost price of this product is better than its competitors."
"There are no licensing costs for this solution."
"The costs were primarily in line with every other vendor at the time."
