Monitoring is specifically valuable because you have one console to monitor everything. This console is called Vision."

"This solution is very simple to use.""The user interface, reporting, and management are good, and we are quite happy with the performance.""The solution's most valuable feature is its ability to restore lost machines. Essentially its high availability capabilities are extremely valuable to us.""The flexibility is the most advantageous aspect of the solution. Our system has a very big environment. Due to this, the replication and backup operation is not an easy task. We prefer HPE SimpliVity modules in our environment, even when we have some different cases in operations."

"This solution does not support Hyper-V, and we would like the new version to be supported and certified to work with Hyper-V.""The consistency of disc quality could be improved.""It's a good product but the price could be lowered. It's expensive.""Scalability is an area that needs to be improved.""Does not support different kinds of mixed applications.""The only thing that I can say is when you procure the VxBlock, obviously you have to complete detailed questionnaires about your architecture including the configuration, et cetera. If you make a mistake on the implementation, then you need to rebuild the entire VxBlock. That is just a point of consideration rather than a flaw. You need to be absolutely sure and validate the upfront configuration information that you provide because your VxBlock comes delivered and built, according to that exact information.""We are finding it a bit challenging in terms of the management of a specific VxBlock component. Currently, we have different units as a part of the block storage. We have one for Cisco equipment and one for Dell. When we have an issue in the infrastructure, Dell EMC VxBlock System should automatically detect it and send a notification to VC support, but, unfortunately, it is doing that only for one unit. It is not working for Cisco components. We have informed them about this area of improvement, and they are working on this. The way different parts are integrated should be improved. We should have one console to log in to see all the infrastructure in terms of each machine and hardware."

More Dell EMC VxBlock System Cons »

"I would like to see better manageability and integration with third-party tools.""The interface is not fully integrated with the ESXi, which is something that could be improved.""The solution has a complicated front-end.""The solution needs to add NFS features."

Pricing and Cost Advice
