The interface could be improved. It should have an application point of view. In the next release, I would for them to improve their application feature. I would also like to see some cloud integration.

Technical support should respond more quickly because the turnaround time is very high. Although the pricing is competitive, it is a concern because competitors such as HP are also competitive.

Compellent is a nice technology, but it's not very efficient anymore. There are better products out there.

I think it would be nice if the connection were better integrated with the network so I could get a broader view of both the network and the system. This would be good in order for us to be able to troubleshoot anything that is going wrong. The product has improved so much over the years that it is hard to think of something else that it really needs to be improved now in comparison to where it was. It is actually kind of good the way it is. Nothing is really annoying me right now. It is really just working and you hardly have to know it is there.

Compared to other solutions, Compellent comes in the form of a component that's not true of a unified storage platform, for instance, to block a level of support can only be done through two different platforms.

It is difficult to say where this solution needs improvement because it is very good. While the price is competitive, in the next release it would be better if they could reduce the fees.

The solution could use more integration with popular backup systems. Dell storage solutions are not very integrated. There are no dedicated models for, for example, Veeam backup or Redhouse backup, etc. The lower model, the 3000, should have duplication. It doesn't right now. It's only from 5000 that this is offered, but it depends on the performance. It could be they don't offer it on lower models because the duplication is too much of a burden to the performance.

The interface could be simplified. The cost of the solution could be better.

It could be hyperconvergent in the future.
