Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The most valuable feature is deduplication, as we have no duplication in the snapshots.""The capacity to migrate machines onto VPLEX is great — it's very clean. We can migrate machines and add arrays easily.""The solution works well. It's very reliable."

More Dell EMC VPLEX Pros »

"Snapshot is a valuable feature.""In OnCommand Unified Manager, we can monitor the entire cluster as well as configure data protection through Unified Manager.""One of the main features is the ability to run the block and file storage from the same system."

Cons
"I would like to have site-to-site replication capability for applications.""The price is a problem with EMC due to the fact that it's more expensive than the other vendors.""With Dell VPLEX, there are some bugs with Broadcom."

More Dell EMC VPLEX Cons »

"The solution lacks the ability to generate reports from Snapshot.""There could be better performance in block storage and the GUI could be improved because not every operation is available. You need some operations in the CLI.""At present, OnCommand Unified Manager has just the monitoring and data protection features. It would be better to add some features for entire cluster management and storage management. Automation should also be included so that instead of separately accessing Unified Manager and OnCommand Workflow Automation, we can work in a single window. It is very much required."
