Pros
I like the many new features, especially the all-flash solution.We have been able to present storage from the VMAX to hosts without any problems.It works with our replication technology, which is not SRDF, which is native replication technology.A rock solid foundation to deploy applications which cannot incur a disruption of service.

The first thing that attracted this model to us was the non-disruptive migration. We had a very large database application that was on older gear and needed to be migrated to these arrays. We had experience with virtualizing behind an array and moving applications and data but this made it even better.

Cons
I would like this solution to integrate the solution that EMC vPlex offers.Resilience replication, reporting, and performance need to be improved.Better speed to release new features that have become industry standards.
