Which is better: IBM flash 9200 or EMC VMAX8000?


I'm researching flash storage arrays. I'm looking for advice about which of these two options is better - IBM flash 9200 or EMC VMAX8000. 


Any recommendations?

PowerMax 800, as it's an AA array (active/active), while FS9200 is (active/passive) ALUA, FS9200 LUN has ownership controller a or b, Powermax enclosure/expansion enclosure is NVME, FS9200 expansion enclosure is SAS.

HI, I would go definitely for PowerMax 8000 series instead of VMAX (old architecture) , for IBM we have little experience (only hear that is expensive)

@reviewer547188 we recently had a case at customer Dell EMC allflash vs Pure Storage, but for us as we are outside of US is PureStorage still questionable start-up with poor presales and support locally, they have a long road to go in my eyes still, even if the technology looks promissing, and they were much more expensive compared to Dell EMC product what surprised me most
