Overall Satisfaction with Dell EMC PowerFlex (formerly VxFlex or VxRack)

Once upon a time we had a SAN from almost every vendor in the space. Each time a salesman would come, our company decided we should try all the newness their product offered. Well as you would expect, that causes a lot of confusion for everyone involved, especially IT staff supporting it! The Dell EMC PowerFlex was our solution to getting all that mess under control!
  • Gets all your (SAN) ducks in a row, and makes it easy with a single pane of glass
  • The usual good dell support if you're paying for the right support level
  • It can get expensive with options added but base price is pretty competitive
  • Loooooong firmware and software upgrades
  • Those long upgrades make your hands sweat when they feel like they've stalled out
  • Support can be hit or miss as far as knowledge of the product
  • Money saved in having a bunch of other competing storage units
  • All kinds of time saved for our admins that have to deal with storage
  • The units look good and give you that futurey data center vibe!

Easy recommendation to anyone looking for a system like this. Mostly if you're looking at the top tier brands like Dell then you've got the budget, so I would just recommending paying for the top tier support as you will be happy with them. Also while the marketing does promise alot, you will find many of those things locked behind paywalls.
