The newer VMAX3 and PowerMax systems are super reliable, super fast, and are always on. We achieve sub-ms response times for Mission Critical (MC) systems with poorly written applications. This is a workhorse platform, which is also the most reliable and stable platform in our environment. View full review »

VMAX3 is our main system for storage. All our systems and all our virtualizations are connected to it. In terms of expanding it, we are replacing it with a new system, the PowerMax 2000 so our current VMAX3 platform will be decommissioned soon. We are switching to PowerMax 2000 because we are looking for improved performance. We see it as the best fit for our requirements in terms of the performance and the overall cost. View full review »

The VMAX3 is one of a few systems we have that's truly non-disruptive. Upgrades are coordinated, require zero application downtime, and can be completed in a very short window. Everything is truly active-active. Uptime and reliability are critical success factors within our organization. View full review »

Since using the VMAX that we have had in our organization for many years, after moving from CX4 and prior to that EVA, we have been able to present storage from the VMAX to hosts without any problems. It works with our replication technology, which is not SRDF, which is native replication technology. We use RecoverPoint. View full review »
