Dell PowerEdge VRTX Room for Improvement

Ryan Dave Brigino
Software Engineer at Es'hailSat
We want to move from a stand-alone implementation of VM hosts and we want to migrate to hyper-converged infrastructure. We will still be using the same virtual machine that we have, but we will migrate it to hyper-converged to have a higher level of availability and resiliency. The problem is with our configuration. We know we can use PowerEdge for hyper-convergence if we have PowerEdge and configure vSAN. We will be able to achieve what VxRail is being able to provide, but we need to migrate it to a new infrastructure instead of changing our existing. It will be much more difficult for us.

Management of storage and networking is web-based, slow, and difficult. I would like a Windows application to manage this instead of using the web interface. My Dell account manager promised to help me with setting it up, but after buying it, he was nowhere to be seen. Didn’t call me back, didn’t take my e-mails. So you are pretty much on your own with setup. Luckily there a lot of people who have already done the same setup, so I was able to follow their guides. View full review »

This solution is good but, with multiple Chassis, it would be a good thing to have one console for management and integration with utilization software. In the next release, I would like to see some auto-tiering features. There are other enterprise storage solutions that have them included. View full review »

I think the networking parts of this solution could be improved. In a future release I'd like to be able to increase storage, that would make a big difference. View full review »
