Dell EMC SC Series

Dell Compellent has a decent portfolio of products for varying sizes of business. Their licensing model is suited for those not wanting total a la carte fare, and administration is intuitive as compared to other storage arrays. This combined with Co-Pilot support gives Dell a good presence in a vast number of scenarios where networked storage is required over a DAS solution. It's only fallback is its own NAS solution, which itself may be better suited to smaller environments

QlikView

I can't recommend QlikView enough for a small shop on a shoestring budget--with one technical user administering things, all your users can have a really nice, super useful data exploration tool. The burden is certainly on that one user, but the payback is immense considering the price (free!). Solutions like Tableau and Qlik's new product, Qlik Sense, are certainly prettier and less demanding in terms of UI design, but they can't touch QlikView in terms of value.

Pros

Dell EMC SC Series

  • Dell EMC SC Series (Compellent) does work well most of the time, but when there are massive i/o issues such as snapshot consolidation, it seems to function poorly.
  • Dell EMC SC Series (Compellent) is an easy to use array. Simple to configure volumes, add servers, and adjust policies.
  • The updates seem to be easily resolvable, with very little to no issues coming from any problematic update paths.

QlikView

  • QlikView allows you make data-backed visualization very easily. The format of these visualizations is completely up to you and your team.
  • QlikView can show your data in many type of graphs as well as show the actual numbers associated with graphical points.
  • We use QlikView to access data on Microsoft SQL Server, but other data sources are supported. Check out the QlikView documentation to determine if they can use data in formats that you need to perform analysis on.

Cons

Dell EMC SC Series

  • Reliability. We had several times where VMFS luns would become corrupted and we'd have to move all VM's off to other storage
  • Performance. 1g iSCSI performance was abysmal (although the unit we used was an older device)
  • Management and Monitoring. Both management and monitoring are pretty primitive. We were never able to integrate monitoring into Nagios.
Jeff Stockamp | TrustRadius Reviewer

QlikView

  • Qlikview has its own database and management system. Developers are required to build a new data model to get data into Qlikview.
  • Qlikview's web application requires significant memory and processing power from the browser. Complex dashboards can crash your browser if you're running too many things at once.
  • Qlikview dashboards look relatively outdated.

Ease of use, ability to load from pretty much any data source. today I created an application that loaded time sheets from excel that are not in a table format. With Qlik's "enable transformation steps" I was able to automate loads of multiple spreadsheets and multiple tabs easily. Could not do that with any other tool.

Dashboards are easy to use. They are very Excel-like with HTML5 capabilities. Data visualization is good.

The system requires minimum training to get user up and running. It just takes one hour to get up and running with building basic dashboards and one all day session for sophisticated dashboard building. It is intuitive.

We see this in our user adoption. We went from 6 users/day consuming dashboards to over 200 in 1.5 years.

We have 40-50 power users authoring dashboards. They have development licenses. My team in IT used to have to build all dashboards. Our capacity has grown from 3 to 50. Most of these users are analyst types good in Excel. A few power users can write SQL to build QVD models

This is not solely based on the support engineers themselves but more so that the logging and gotcha's that their array has. There have been multiple times where logs are pulled, but the folder is not large enough, and it crashes the array. Other times there are certain aspects that support either does not know of or isn't knowledgable about how to look at particular issues that could be causing problems.

"Implementation" can mean a few things... so I'm not sure that this is the answer you want.... but here it goes:To me, implementation means: "Is the user interface intuitive and can I produce meaningful reports with ease?"On that score, I'd say YES. The amount of training required was minimal and the results were powerful.The desktop implementation is a simple, "blank" interface just waiting for your creativity. The pre-populated templates give you a reasonable start to any project -- and a good set of objects to "play around with" if you're just getting started.Finally, note that the "implementation" I used was baked into QuickBooks 2016 Enterprise -- called "Advanced Reporting"..... That integration makes it ultra useful and simple.

Alternatives Considered

Dell EMC SC Series

We initially used EqualLogic, however we found the Compellent to scale better, do more, and cost nearly the same. Their approach to storage technology was very innovative and seemed to be the most comprehensive. We needed a SAN that was enterprise class in technology, but at the price of something smaller
Justin Stumpf | TrustRadius Reviewer

QlikView

We evaluated a lot of other products in the magic quadrant but primarily compared QV against Tableau. We initially wanted to go with Tableau because it was cheaper and a simpler product to learn and use but frankly, their sales person was horrible and was not willing to work with us on number of licences or price. Qlikview was a great alternative. The product was better and even though it was a little more expensive, the more flexible licensing arrangement made up for it

Return on Investment

Dell EMC SC Series

  • The SC9000 has been able to serve our current and futures needs well enough to not need to upgrade anytime soon.
Brooks Weisblat | TrustRadius Reviewer

QlikView

  • Generate quick reports for requirements that don't require complex calculations. ROI was fine, but Tableau software was much more intuitive for non-technical users on our team
  • When putting Qlikview reports side by side with Tableau, we ended up delivering Tableau reports since they were quicker to generate and required no technical expertise
