We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
There has been no downtime. It has built-in redundancy upon redundancy.It is easy to manage overall. It is all web-based. It has a an easy, nice dashboard. I receive emails if there are issues. When there are any updates, I receive emails. I can either do them on my own, but normally I schedule them with Dell EMC and they remote in, then it's done.Their support cases are all handed through the portal. The support contacts me when they need to do upgrades. It has been great. It's all very well-handled, scheduled, and performed.It is nice the way ESRS works with remote support, being able to remote in and take a look at problems proactively.It is easy to manage. A lot of the system manages itself.It's very reliable. I have not had an issue with Dell EMC Unity.It's easy for us to use because we use other solutions which are built for Unity, like VMware, which are recovery points. They work with the Dell EMC Unity system, as these products integrate well in our environment.The Dell EMC unity interface is simple to manage. We manage it by ourselves. We create logs to store data.

Cons
If there's anything Dell EMC could do to get the same performance for a cheaper price, that would be great.I would like to see more integration with other products.The interface can be a little challenging for someone new.I would like the UI to look better.It should be lighter. It takes up a ton of rack space. It would be nice to have a smaller footprint.It might be nice to have more integrated features instead of having everything as a separate module, like the networking. The networking is attached separately in the back. It would be nice if that was more integrated with less ports.It needs more functionality and the ability to move across more landscapes.I would like to see more compression and deduplication added to the solution. Today, our compression is about 2:1 and other solutions give us about 4:1 or 5:1.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We integrated it with VMware vSphere at no additional cost. As we moved into VMware vSphere, this is what we bought to go with it for our storage performance.While Dell EMC is costly, I don't have any complaints about their licensing model.The solution should be cheaper.Obtaining a warranty is easy.The price is very reasonable.As far as licensing goes, I love how VMware works with Dell EMC Unity. It's great. They work hand in hand. They have made it so simple.It was easy to order. We are a big Dell shop, so it was easy to purchase and get it in place, then up and running.Our big return of investment is the ability to scale and not add FTE counts nor extra administration.
