Price / Quality ratio is good and since OE 5.03 code the array family reached a rather good maturity level

What is our primary use case?

We are running 3,000 VMs spread out over five such units.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the integration with vCenter."
  • "Support Responsiveness & time to fix bugs should be improved."

What other advice do I have?

Midrange solution for SMB up till Large Entreprises too if you spread the load on many units.

A High performance and flexible solution that I trust for our customer's data centers

What is our primary use case?

I'm a data center solution architect at Merdasco and based on our customers' needs, we build solutions for them. This product is very flexible, powerful, and suitable for many environments. Dell EMC Unity OE provides block LUN, VMware Virtual Volumes (VVols), and NAS file system storage access. Multiple, different storage resources can reside in the same storage pool, and multiple storage pools can be configured within the same DPE/DAE array.

Pros and Cons

  • "This product is perfect for small, and mid-range customers who need to pay less, but still, get enterprise-level capabilities."
  • "This product needs to have better integration with enterprise backup solutions and archiving devices."

What other advice do I have?

It's a good idea to add some features to this storage such as better integration with container-based services.

Good integration, an easy initial setup, and quite stable

What is our primary use case?

I primarily use the solution for NAS network storage for the Microsoft environment.

Pros and Cons

  • "Integration is easy with this product."
  • "Currently, the protocol SNMP is not implemented. That's a problem, as we follow this protocol and I can't check the integrity of this equipment."

What other advice do I have?

We're just a Dell client. We don't have a business relationship with the company. I have four Unity products. Two were already installed in September, and one just last week. While two are already in production, the other two are not up and running yet. I'd recommend the product to others. Overall, I'd rate it nine out of ten. We haven't worked with it too long, however, everything seems to be going quite well.
