Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Infinio

Infinio is best suited for infrastructure that has high-latency read IO performance challenges. It does nothing to help write IO, so keep in mind the type of workload for which you need to reduce latency.If you have traditional SAS or SATA storage, Infinio has a tremendous impact on the response time of many applications. You can build your cluster's caching pool from either available RAM or an internal drive inside each host. This flexibility helps Infinio to be suitable across many types of environments.

Infinio

Infinio has no real market competition. There was a tool called Pernix FVP that did both read/write acceleration that I evaluated that became end-of-life while it was in POC. It was more complicated to deploy and remove than Infinio and required downtime for each host. Also, the fact that it was no longer supported made the decision to choose Infinio easy.
