Dell EMC Reviews

Chris Childerhose

Senior Engineer - Backup & Replication at ThinkON
May 11 2020

What is most valuable?

I would rate it at 5/5 as the deduplication and compression of the device for backups is outstanding. We have about 55TB total space on the Data Domain which we send Veeam… more »

How has it helped my organization?

This allows our organization to send more data to this device compared to others. It also allows us a fast recovery of files or Virtual Machines if needed being… more »

What needs improvement?

The processing capabilities I believe could be improved, however, we have an older unit DD670 and newer units may have already improved upon this.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

What other advice do I have?

Review the newer versions of the device and evaluate them if possible. You will get great benefit for backups.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

What is most valuable?

I do not have much information on the technical front. We use this product when it meets a customer's needs for solutions to business requirements in their data centers. I sell this product to meet customer requirements.

What needs improvement?

I the product already has scalability features, but in terms of size maybe they could do more to work with parent storage and move to high-level scaling. That area, I feel, is a place where there could be some more options in this solution… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We have used other products from other vendors in the same category. We are using mostly Dell products for the storage and servers unless a customer comes specifically demanding another brand. Otherwise, we are pushing the Dell products… more »

What other advice do I have?

We have come across only two use cases. We are recommending Dell because of the features. We try to convince the customers when meeting with them to move over to Dell as a newer, better solution compared to what they might already have. Of… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Any brand we have had the opportunity to evaluate is potentially something that we can use. We can choose from almost all major brands, like Cisco, Juniper, Alcatel, Fortinet — all of the available products that we evaluate are… more »

Jan 25 2020

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the low management overhead, and the lower skill set required to manage it. All of the additional management tools plug into vCenter, which is our standard virtualization interface for VMware. It has the… more »

What needs improvement?

The cost of using the public cloud deployment is astronomical.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We received a good price from Dell. Pricing was pretty much the same apart from the pricing for the public cloud it was astronomical. Other than licensing fees, we had to pay for our equipment. We calculated that our TCO is going to be… more »

What other advice do I have?

We did a lot of research ahead of time with this solution to make sure that it was stable, scalable, had a good interface, was easy to use, and that it had good technical support. I don't have enough time with the solution to know what… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at Nutanix, NetApp, Public Cloud, and another product called Datrium.

System Engineer at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
May 12 2020

What is most valuable?

What I like best about this product is that it is a complete solution, both hardware, and software, by the same vendor. There are many object storage systems that are sold as a software solution, only. At the same time, some vendors only sell the hardware. With this product, they are combined to… more »

What needs improvement?

Technical support needs to be improved.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have experience with mixed-vendor solutions. For example, with Cisco, they sell the S-Series Storage Servers and you can use this hardware with software from another vendor. However, with a multivendor system, you can have trouble with interoperability between hardware and software. The other… more »

What other advice do I have?

There are many ways to make products better, although, for the purpose that our customers are using this solution, you can't do it better. It is a product that I recommend. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

What do you think of Dell EMC Unity XT?

What is our primary use case?

This solution is our primary storage for all workloads. It has good replication and integration with VMware.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution makes it easy to manage storage, provision new workloads, and scale-up.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the easy management with a great GUI. We can do a lot from there.

What needs improvement?

This solution would be improved with the addition of flexible raid volumes.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution for three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a very stable platform, so far zero issues.

What is most valuable?

Data Domain Boost has a unique protocol. I don't think other vendors have a similar protocol and controls from the products I have had experience with. There are alternative solutions, but Data Domain… more »

How has it helped my organization?

Because of how it functions we do not have to make additional investment in hardware and services.

What needs improvement?

Like any product, it would be good to improve performance and the ease of dealing with operating the system. It needs a more familiar interface to make it easier to use for everyone. Other than that… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I think it is important that Dell reconsider the pricing. I don't know what we pay off-hand, but I do know that the pricing is high compared with other competing products.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We are actually using both Veritas and Data Domain simultaneously. Between these two, Data Domain is more efficient for me and very scalable. There is a limitation to the scalability at some point… more »

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten, where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate Dell EMC Data Domain Boost as a ten. I strongly recommend this product for all its capabilities. I do self-study… more »

What is most valuable?

The feature I have found the most valuable is that the interface is easy to use which makes the product user-friendly.

How has it helped my organization?

It has given us a reliable and dynamic storage system that we did not match before with our previous solution.

What needs improvement?

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… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Five years ago we used to have some off-brand thing. It was not a very good solution. It was just a collection of hard drives. When we got to a point we realized it wasn't able to do the job we had to choose another solution. That was when… more »

What other advice do I have?

I think that overall that the product is very good for us and what we need it to do. The advice I would give to other people considering Compellent depends on what they want to do and what they want to use it for. I'm going with a hybrid… more »
