This solution is super stable and reliable, and the kind of system that allows you to sleep at night.

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.

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.

I'm looking for the day in which the VMAX platform can be considered 'web scale'.

I'd like to see improvements where we can scale out an existing array and remove older controllers\drives\etc., within the same subsystem.

Resilience replication, reporting, and performance need to be improved.

Better speed to release new features that have become industry standards. EMC created so many standards in the past. Now, it seems they are playing a me-too game and lagging behind in some areas, specifically data reduction.
