Dell EMC VxBlock System

Dell EMC VxBlock System is well suited for well-defined on-premise processing requirements. Dell EMC VxBlock System's scalability allows it to grow it along to accommodate growing project requirements. High initial investment makes Dell EMC VxBlock System less appropriate for unknown growth prospects projects. It is also important to remember that there are no scale down capabilities provided, just as in any other on-premise solution.

I honestly don't see an area where the PureSystem couldn’t fit in and be of a great use due to its ability to integrate a multitude of technology, (some that are outdated even) to create a stable network platform. I think if a corporation is seeking to upgrade their system but is financially disadvantaged they couldn't make a better investment for more bang for the buck than buying the IBM PureSystem.

  • Efficiency- PureSystems has enabled our users to work more efficiently with customer orders, providing the requested data in a far less turn around time than ever before.

IBM PureSystems

Well there was a lot going for the vCE block systems we considered the 200 and 300 series. These two series seemed to overlap each other just about right where we are at in our IT needs. The 200 series leaned more to the less side of our needs and the 300 leaned to the farside of our needs. The vCE didn't appear to be compatible with a lot of our current configured components, while the PureSystem did. So that was the real clincher for us. We spent maybe a week integrating everything and testing to insure things had integrated as expected but it was well worth the effort and time.

Return on Investment

Dell EMC VxBlock System

  • Faster objective delivery times
  • Compressed release timeframes
  • Improved data protection

IBM PureSystems

  • We were seeking a means to better leverage what we had without rebuilding the entire system, the PureSystem enabled us to do just that.
  • At first we were very hesitant of the system's robustness, it was to be honest a little intimidating, however with IBM always ready to hear our question no matter how small they might of seemed, we got rolling very quickly, I won't say effortlessly but very quickly.
  • When it came time on short notice that we needed greater storage and flexibility to incorporate some new application, the new system performed very well with incorporating the new applications and the increase of storage.
