Likelihood to Recommend

DDN IntelliFlash (formerly Tegile, from Western Digital)

SMB business Tegile pricing and performance is particularly well suited. BC/DR scenarios are also enhanced as they are extremely good at upgrading each side and failing over for upgrades. I don't know any situations where these would not be appropriate.

EMC VNX (Discontinued)

  • EMC VNX is suited for VMware environment as it integrates with vCenter.
  • Integrates well with SolarWinds storage monitoring software.
  • It is well suited for enterprise-level organizations with 100+ servers.
  • It is not suited for small businesses as it requires specialized administrators and has relatively high license cost.
  • It is not suited for businesses that host most of their servers on the cloud.

Pros

DDN IntelliFlash (formerly Tegile, from Western Digital)

  • Fast writes to and retrieves from the disks.
  • Fast ethernet communication and full support for Vmware.
  • NFS storage means no LUN rebuilding or painful LUN migrations.

EMC VNX (Discontinued)

  • VNX has had very solid uptime. Over the course of the last 5 years, we have had very little if any downtime.
  • We have also used it for our home directories, and with the data dedupe on the file side it has saved us a lot of space.
  • Adding additional drive space has also been really easy.

Cons

DDN IntelliFlash (formerly Tegile, from Western Digital)

  • I would like to see every update to be able to be reached via either partial or full updates. In the past we had progressed to one level of software and then found we could not get to a later version from that level, though they did address that.
Bill Holmberg | TrustRadius Reviewer

EMC VNX (Discontinued)

  • It occupies a large floor space in the data center.
  • Unisphere management interface uses Java, which is problematic to run.

It just works, and works very well. The GUI is clean and easy to understand, and the dashboard gives vital information at a glance. It also gives a very comprehensive view of what all the moving parts are doing. It is so clear and matches the view in real life that I can have a non-technical person looking at it and talking to me on the phone and we both see the same things, instantly.

Alternatives Considered

DDN IntelliFlash (formerly Tegile, from Western Digital)

We used to have both Nimble and Compellant in the past, and there is no comparison with the Tegile offerings. The Tegiles outperform them in every area and are easier to use.
Bill Holmberg | TrustRadius Reviewer

EMC VNX (Discontinued)

  • Dell EMC Unity is the improved version of EMC VNX. It has all the features in VNX with better performance.
  • NetApp all flash is faster and more expensive. It performs better with Citrix systems and VDI solutions.
  • HP MSA storage system is less performant and less expensive. It works better for file and CCTV data storage.

Return on Investment

DDN IntelliFlash (formerly Tegile, from Western Digital)

  • It has increased our productivity in our database users by about 40%
Bill Holmberg | TrustRadius Reviewer

EMC VNX (Discontinued)

  • I think it has provided improved reliability and performance [compared to] our previous solutions.
  • The lack of performance metrics has led us to need a 3rd party tool that integrates into our Vsphere environment to give us feed back on performance.
