Dell EMC Unity

Dell EMC Unity is a hybrid solution. That is, it is indicated for environments that do not need specific and customized solutions. For general use, it guarantees an excellent performance, with the possibility of delivering 60TB NAS to end-users. However, if the environment is critical, there are solutions, from Dell itself, that are more appropriate. For example, do not try to use it as database storage, it will not have acceptable performance.

Cons

Dell EMC Unity

  • Alerting: receiving an alert when an issue occurs. That is good to know. However, if the alert is cleared, or somehow no longer in alarm, no email is received. At times I will receive the email alert on weekends, not knowing if the issue is resolved or not until Monday when I can access the unit. I have learned in most instances, the alert is a false alarm, which could be a problem.
  • The alerting itself is sometimes not clear. For example, it tells me the link is down, we reset the connection, the link is still down, a tech was dispatched, he troubleshot, and finally the alarm cleared. This incident took almost a week. It went back into alarm after he left, then suddenly it cleared on its own.

Support for Dell EMC Unity is great. Only the upgrade support takes a bit longer. If the upgrading support were to be faster it would be 10 out of 10.

Alternatives Considered

Dell EMC Unity

Unity is the successor to the EMC VNX but has a much simpler and more user-friendly interface. It is also much more easy to manage and integrate with VMware.

Return on Investment

Dell EMC Unity

  • Less business downtime and reliability is a major business concern. DELL EMC UNITY addresses this concern well and provides robust storage.
  • Investing in UNITY system is less expensive than all-flash storage systems.
  • Managing and provisioning VMware disks became simpler from a single interface in the Vcenter
