Has easy management and good Enterprise capabilities

What is our primary use case?

We use it for a VMware and Exchange environment.

Pros and Cons

  • "We have never had a bad experience with it because we never had failures. It has good data availability and the performance is also okay."
  • "The pricing is a bit expensive. That is the reason we are now currently we are looking for other solutions. That's the reason we are looking at AFF and Unity. We are also considering PowerStore."

What other advice do I have?

Aim to implement additional features like de-duplication and compression. That should enhance the experience. Focus on unified features. People are now more cost-effective. They want to have one box with multiple features. I would rate EMC VMAX an eight out of ten. I would like to see more deduplication and compression features in order to make it a ten.

Resilient storage solution with zero downtime that is easy to implement and has good support

What is our primary use case?

We have two data centers and we have VMAX in each one. We use VPlex to replicate data between the two.

Pros and Cons

  • "This solution is resilient."
  • "The way you configure larger size volumes needs improvement."

What other advice do I have?

The version that we are using is very near to the end of its life. We will occasionally do code updates, but it is very difficult to buy disc drives for it anymore. I am not even sure that you can buy capacity upgrades. It's fairly easy to implement this product. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
