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.

For SMB file storage Exablox is great, but as an ESXi datastore it still needs work.

  • Exablox is still in its infancy as a company and in some respects the product feels like a version 1.0.
  • Integration with VMware ESXi has some bugs that need to be figured out.

The price for Exablox was very appealing. If we can resolve the NFS datastore issues we are seeing in VMware, this is a perfect solution for a ESXi datastore. Once that issue is resolved, I will give Exablox a higher rating.

SMB file access has been very responsive. We have not seen any slowness. Also, in using Exablox as tier 1 storage in our VMware environment, the VMs performed great. No slowness issues.

Exablox was much less expensive than other storage arrays and I think there are a lot of reasons to purchase them. I believe that as the product matures, it will be a great option for storage.

We have not tried to scale Exablox so we are not familiar with this.
