Dell EMC VMAX All Flash Storage

This really depends on how you want to use it. If you are a large-scale corporation that needs to have a highly scalable and high I/O usage this is a fantastic array. If you do not have static storage admin that centralizes on EMC storage than this could be a difficult array to manage.

Tintri

When you need a simple storage platform that is built from the ground up for performance. If IOPS is important to you, this is a great product for you.

Pros

Dell EMC VMAX All Flash Storage

  • It creates a fully redundant connection from multiple controllers that are always up even during updates.
  • Once setup there is little to no adjustments that need to be made to the storage array. All that's needed is volume updates.
Paul Phelan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Tintri

  • Thin provisioned drives for SQL and Oracle databases allow maximizing virtual environment storage
  • Excellent performance in the virtual environment
  • Works well with System Center Virtual Machine Manager and Hyper-V

Cons

Dell EMC VMAX All Flash Storage

  • The configuration portion is really difficult. If you are not a fully trained Dell storage admin you won't be able to setup this array.
  • The GUI is stuck in the 90's and has very little user-friendliness.
Paul Phelan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Tintri

  • Not necessarily a negative, but if you go with Tintri, you will be buying other hardware as well. There are hyper-converged products that are all-in-one. Like I said, not a negative, more of an observation.

The best part about this array is that once you have it configured it is pretty much done. There is little to no other configurations to be done other than normal volume adjustments. Support is great as they understand this array very well. The updates are very hands-off and are done solely by support. You contact them and then there are no other changes done on the end-user's side.

Alternatives Considered

Dell EMC VMAX All Flash Storage

The EMC array is a lot more robust, but the PURE array does almost the same with about a tenth of ease from the configuration. It really depends on the type of backend servers that you need to support as to whether you need a EMC array or a PURE array.

Tintri

Tintri is the only flash based storage solution that I have used, I cannot do a comparison on that, but Tintri compared to backend disk-based solutions is just an unfair comparison. I see no reason to not to use Tintri for any of your storage requirements unless price is the number one factor. It's more expensive than disk-based solutions.

Return on Investment

Dell EMC VMAX All Flash Storage

  • This storage array is great because it is an always on even during updates.
  • The negative is the time spent on configuring and the need for a dedicated storage admin.
Paul Phelan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Tintri

  • Allowed us to drive down the amount of time required to manage our storage platform from hours per week to minutes per month.
  • Removed the complexity of having to manage multiple LUNs or datastores, allowing us to focus our time and efforts on more value-add things.
  • Removed the need to troubleshoot performance issues; the platform is never the bottleneck.
