IT Manager at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
The solution needs to be simplified. When you integrate your storage with other systems, it could use a little bit of automation.View full review »
IT Architect at a healthcare company with 5,001-10,000 employees
What needs to improve is that the end compression uses a lot of CPU, which makes it difficult or impossible to upgrade. I believe that it has improved in the upgraded versions, which we don't have yet. Also, the price and interface should be simplified too.View full review »
Snr. Build Engineer at a computer software company with 1,001-5,000 employees
It's not an improvement so much as a query. What I'm curious about is whether or not the feature has the ability to do inline data reduction between two physical storage solutions. If we have one storage solution in the UK and the other in Australia, will the system be able to tell us what we have already, so we aren't sending 95% of our data across the world unnecessarily? I know that the feature works locally on the source solution. What I'm curious about is, would that data reduction feature work between two instances of XtremIO in two different places.View full review »
G. Manager- Technical Services with 51-200 employees
The cost of this solution could be reduced.
Scalability is something that can be improved because there is an issue when it comes to mixing versions. We cannot mix version one and version two. This is something that may have been improved but earlier, it is something that was a challenge in terms of scalability.View full review »
Manager of Customer Services with 1,001-5,000 employees
The most important thing for the system engineer is to check if there is latency in the IOPS for any run. You cannot measure the number of IOPS or whether or not it is overloaded. You cannot measure anything in EMC about this. Most solutions, especially HP, improved our fall-over performance, with our database and servers. Most servers are HP, but we use EMC now only for backup.
One thing that should be improved is the reporting and monitoring tools. It should use real-time monitoring for storage, IOPS, latency, etc.View full review »
The deployment of the solution could be simplified.
The solution should be integrated into the system by default and not separately.View full review »
IT Manager at a tech services company
The management should be improved and the GUI interface could be better and easier.
In the next release, they should improve the replication. There should be high availability. You can't do replication from one EMC to another, you would need to use another tool with the way it is now.View full review »
