Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"It is pretty easy to install.""It's a good solution when you don't need a lot of IT.""From a hardware perspective, it's interesting. The selling point of VRTX is that everything is built-in. For a small company that doesn't have a server room or the capabilities of hosting several servers, VRTX has four blades. The equivalent in regular server models would be four servers, which is a minimum of 4U, but it could easily be 8U, and then it would have storage. The storage is included inside the enclosure, and it would require a storage unit. It would also require connectivity, which would be ethernet or another protocol switch. From a software perspective, it's a little bit more integrated. You have an integrated way of managing the whole thing, including storage and networking. It has an internal network that can also be useful. I know for a fact that Dell is almost fazing out the product, and it is not that available anymore because it will just cannibalize their sales. They want to sell the more expensive stuff.""We were satisfied after we upgraded to a professional next-day on-site support.""Dell PowerEdge VRTX supports a lot of memory which has allowed us to keep our system size smaller.""We started off with a base because we started our infrastructure with Dell and we always propose or prefer Dell which is easier to manage the warranty than with different vendors.""The most valuable feature is the combined management in one box.""It is simple to use and it's user-friendly."

"The solution's most valuable feature is its ability to restore lost machines. Essentially its high availability capabilities are extremely valuable to us.""We find the deduplication and compression features to be most valuable, as well as that of the backup solution inside.""Consolidation and duplications features.""The user interface, reporting, and management are good, and we are quite happy with the performance.""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."

Cons
"The scalability is limited with one chassis and the amount of storage it will give you, but it is mainly used for small offices.""VRTX is a bit simplified to the extent that it is a mainstream type of solution for small businesses. If a company needs a more complex solution or something that is a time saver or has more power or scalability, it is probably not the best solution. However, when a company grows and its needs grow, this type of environment can be definitely migrated towards a lab environment or pre-prod testing, not necessarily production. It can still have a second life for the other types of use.""Management of storage and networking is web-based, slow, and difficult.""I'd like to be able to increase capacity.""When we first started with this product, we had some difficulty with it.""The licensing can be difficult to understand.""Dell PowerEdge VRTX can improve by providing support for M2 drives.""It would be better to have a compact version of this solution for customers that have a small office and don't require a proper data center with power or an industrial type HP."

More Dell PowerEdge VRTX Cons »

"Features that should be addressed concern the HPE functionality and the interaction with VMware.""The solution has a complicated front-end.""The solution needs to add NFS features.""The MTG inside HP could be improved.""The interface is not fully integrated with the ESXi, which is something that could be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The solution price of Dell PowerEdge VRTX could be reduced. However, when comparing the price of Dell PowerEdge VRTX to other solutions, such as HP and Lenovo, it was the best price for what they offer.""We bought a license for seven years.""Fully configured, it costs about $50,000 or $55,000. I did purchase a used one or refurbished one. I have been very happy with it so far. Even if it is an older unit, it doesn't look like its age, and I would say it has been a great choice so far for me. Obviously, I would have thought twice if I had to pay for a brand new one because it is still an older technology with the risk of being discontinued. I talked to Dell, and they're still selling it, but they're not promoting it. They're promoting another line of products right now for hyper-converged, which are much more expensive.""We are renewing the support and we are purchasing the license for the software.""This product is more reasonably-priced than similar solutions by HPE."
