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.

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.

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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
