I'm always interested in ways we can scale out and avoid monolithic migrations from one array to another every four to five years. Yes, there are a ton of easy migration methods, but I'd like to see improvements where we can scale out an existing array and remove older controllers\drives\etc., within the same subsystem.

Improvements for PowerMax might be tricky since what we already know that what we will receive is enough for us. All of our requirements are supported by the current version of PowerMax that we purchased. As far as improvements for VMAX3, it would have been great to have it across all systems.

I would like this solution to integrate the solution that Dell EMC vPlex offers. In addition, I think they should have a better means to test the equipment.
