Score 7 out of 10
This is used as one of our main storage arrays. It works fairly well for virtual servers and attaching new volumes. This is great because it is fully redundant and can stay up during updates with little to no issues since it has so many controllers. It addresses the snapshot stun issues that our SC9 compellant was having with our database servers.
- 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.
- 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.
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.

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.
