What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is deduplication, as we have no duplication in the snapshots.

What needs improvement?

The administration is difficult, so we want to add hyper-converged infrastructure. I would like to have site-to-site replication capability for applications. This is something that is available in other products and it would make new sites very easy and fast to set up.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to using Dell EMC VPLEX, we used NetApp. Both of these are good products and are very powerful.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to use HCI. It has more features than the traditional approach, the administration is easier, and the performance is better. Troubleshooting something that is all-in-one will also be easier. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
