We use Dell PowerVault at our college for our storage and tape in our backup and video security solutions.
- Tape Solution
- Small Business Solution
- Good for direct attached storage purposes like video security.
- The solution isn't really for large enterprise solutions except for direct attached solutions.
PowerVault is good for direct attached solutions such as video security, backups and tape storage. We had it as our VMWare storage but dropped it about 5 years because of lack of compatibility with VMWare. I believe it is compatible now, but I still wouldn't recommend it for large enterprise environments.
