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

Pros
"It's a good solution when you don't need a lot of IT.""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.""It is simple to use and it's user-friendly.""The most valuable feature is the combined management in one box.""We were satisfied after we upgraded to a professional next-day on-site support.""It is pretty easy to install."

Cons
"I'd like to be able to increase capacity.""The problem is with our configuration. We know we can use PowerEdge for hyper-convergence if we have PowerEdge and configure vSAN. We will be able to achieve what VxRail is being able to provide, but we need to migrate it to a new infrastructure instead of changing our existing. It will be much more difficult for us.""The scalability is limited with one chassis and the amount of storage it will give you, but it is mainly used for small offices.""Management of storage and networking is web-based, slow, and difficult.""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.""When we first started with this product, we had some difficulty with it."

"In the next release, I would like to see compatibility and support for critical applications, like SAP.""Snapshot notification would be a good addition."
