Managing Director at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees

What is most valuable?

Being a managing director I don't get "under the cover" as much as I used to, but what I can tell you from what my teams say is that it is a lot less intensive from a performance-troubleshooting perspective. The management software is a lot... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The performance benefits weren't surprising, we expected that. What we didn't expect were the densification benefits that we got out of going all-flash. We're able to put more applications on the arrays because of how all-flash performs. The... more»

What needs improvement?

Overall, I'd like to see more synergy between Dell EMC's higher-tier platforms and their mid-tier platforms. What I have said, constantly, to my partners at Dell EMC is that the clear articulation of the path is really important to us. In... more»

What is most valuable?

Most valuable features have been the system customization with it, the performance you receive, and their CoPilot Support (or Dell EMC Storage Support). The auto-tiering feature is one of the key reasons that we do use the SC Series platform.... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We see very low latency with very high IOPS for mixed workloads. Therefore, we are getting great performance. Our customers have been very satisfied because they use a wide range of applications. We use the data migration utilities a lot. We... more»

What needs improvement?

We had times that we needed a file service solution. We've used FluidFS, but it's a solution that is being transitioned out.

What do you think of Dell EMC SC Series?

Primary Use Case We use Dell EMC storage at two data center sites for hosting vSphere server environments. Those server services are something that we offer internally in the company: SharePoint, GIS mapping services, license servers, and domain controllers. Pretty much everything is hosted on those servers or on the storage. • Valuable Features It is easy to use, expand the hard drives, add storage, and set up replication. • Room for Improvement I would like the ability to monitor and manage the storage.   The web GUI is not fully there.  I would like to have 100% functionality through the web app. • Use of Solution More than five years. • Stability Issues The solution is stable. We have not had too many problems. The issues that have come up have been addressed...

What do you think of Dell EMC SC Series?

Primary Use Case We use it for storage for a virtual environment. • Improvements to My Organization It has definitely improved our speed, storage space, and recovery times. • Valuable Features The most valuable feature is the speed for the end-user. • Room for Improvement The ease of use could be improved. It took me a while to learn it. I would also like to see all-in-one appliances. That's what I'm here, at VMworld 2018, to look at. • Stability Issues The stability is okay, and the maintenance response time is excellent. • Scalability Issues The scalability is endless. • Customer Service and Technical Support Technical support is perfect. We use it all the time.  • Previous Solutions We were using Dell EMC servers and then went to the virtual...

What do you think of Dell EMC SC Series?

Primary Use Case It is performing well. • Improvements to My Organization We have a bit more storage, and it is faster. • Valuable Features Ease of use Reliability It is fast and performs well. • Room for Improvement The administration and support (on the way that they delivered) was a little bit slow. • Use of Solution Less than one year. • Stability Issues So far, so good. However, we have only had it running for four months. • Scalability Issues Scalability is good. We still have more room. • Customer Service and Technical Support We have not used technical support yet. • Previous Solutions Our previous solution ran out of space and IOPS. Therefore, we had to get something which was faster. • Initial Setup The initial setup was pretty...

What do you think of Dell EMC SC Series?

Primary Use Case We use it in our production and environmental support along with our VDI infrastructure.  It has been working to our expectations. • Valuable Features Compared to some of the hardware that we support, from an infrastructure operator standpoint, I never had any problems with the system. • Room for Improvement We have seen some degraded throughput with mixed workloads. We have been working with Dell EMC to correct some of these latency issues. • Stability Issues It has been one of the most stable products in our data center. • Scalability Issues We have not had to scale yet. • Pricing, License Cost and Setup We have found the solution to be affordable. • Other Advice Do your research if you are looking into this product. I am very happy...
