What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the overall integration and just seeing the three different layers which make up the machine software. Altogether, it's something that I would say is much better than any other solution that I have experienced… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Recently we used it in a hybrid setup for infrastructure between the VMs and the physical. Managing such an environment is a little bit tricky. Now, we have now one solution for everything or for the different environments that we have with… more»

What needs improvement?

VxRail as a VM, as the extended version of VM, made the solution very powerful, unlike others like Nutanix or HP Synergy or SimpliVity. I can't see any problem other than one thing which is the vendor lock. It means if I want to extend my… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We just used pure VM. On HP, on the hardware itself, it was HP and virtualization. It was not a hybrid comparison. It was only a VM solution. We switched to hybrid just to take the features of all the clash kind of stuff that is more I… more»

What other advice do I have?

How has it helped my organization?

It has reduced downtime. Before on our previous solution, we used to have downtime on some of the servers because of the sort of convention. Currently, I've not experienced any downtime on any of the servers, and there is no more resource… more»

What needs improvement?

For now, we just started using it, so we've not really identified the area where we see anything lacking. Maybe after we use it for around six months we'll be able to know some areas. Moreover, we're still doing the migration. We've… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Previously, we used to use Cisco before VxFlex. We switched because of the environment. We had high latency in the storage. Also, the underlying servers were obsolete. They were end-of-life.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend others use VxFlex. I would rate the solution eight out of 10. I would rate it a 10 if they provided better integration with the other applications and offered a migration tool to easily migrate from Hyper-V.
