We use it as the OS drives for our VMs. Our is a hybrid solution.

We are heavily virtualized and it is used for the storage. It's performing well, we have had no issues to date.

We use the SC platform for storage solutions. As a partner, it's usually one of our go-to products for mid-range customers.

We're starting our ScaleIO implementation. We have vSAN but we also have software-defined. Our primary goal is to reduce our infrastructure costs by having another offering out there, outside of the traditional SAN storage environment.

What we are using from Dell EMC is their server line and their storage line. We're pretty well embedded with Dell EMC.

We use it for our production loads and for whatever is running on all the production VMs, including our database and regular applications. In terms of performance, we have had issues once or twice, but apart from that, it has been amazing.

We use it for storage. We have gotten really good performance out of it, fast IOPS. We don't use the hybrid solution, or the built-in data migration capabilities, protocols, or DIP inline upgrades.

We use it for VDI, mainly. In terms of performance, there were some difficulties to begin with, with a lot of different upgrades. It took a lot of time because we've got several of them. With all the upgrades done, it has run pretty smoothly. Right now, we've just got one particular system on it, where we're just trying to test the waters to figure out if it's good because we use a combination of Dell EMC and Cisco equipment. So far, the Dell EMC seems to be doing pretty well. There are some applications that we've run where it appears that the Dell EMC would be a better solution.

It's primary storage. It started off as just being spinning disk, but recently we've had a lot of traction with customers adding flash and even going to all-flash systems. Some of our customers have had it six, seven, eight years. It performs quite well. We had a customer who had an Oracle all-flash system, and they needed to run VMs in their disaster recovery facility and, of course, they did not want to purchase the Oracle storage because it's extremely expensive. So, they added flash to their existing Compellent storage, they were using a DR for the other stuff. It has performed quite well for them.

We're a large financial institution and we use them at our branch sites. They're definitely not enterprise-grade, but where we need to have an all-flash solution for applications, and a smaller footprint, that's where we use them. The performance has been excellent.

We use it in our production and environmental support along with our VDI infrastructure. It has been working to our expectations.

We primarily use it to support our customers. We are a managed service provider. We have private and public clouds that we use it for. The performance over the years has been great. We like the platform and the upgrade features that it has. The biggest thing which we like is the support that we receive.

It back-ends our vSphere virtualization farms.

We use Dell EMC storage at two data center sites for hosting vSphere server environments. Those server services are something that we offer internally in the company: SharePoint, GIS mapping services, license servers, and domain controllers. Pretty much everything is hosted on those servers or on the storage.

It's the storage backbone for our virtual environment. So far the performance has been very good.
