Overall Satisfaction with Dell EMC VMAX All Flash Storage

On my account we have used it only in one region for specific site.There was a specific contract between Dell and the client. Decision was made with this type due to VMAX NDM feature as many data had to be migrated. It works well for UNIX VMs under vSphere environment.
  • provisioning, compression, snapshot, NDM
  • Point in Time Protection (SnapVX)
  • Transparent Recovery
  • difficult configuration - expiration needed
  • HW support must be gathered by the client
  • NDM
  • Data Domain data protection
  • Optimal storage efficiency
  • Very good response time
  • Mission-critical availability

Did implementation of Dell VMAX go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Dell VMAX again?


DEll EMC VMAX 250 is usable for independent customer not worrying about different technologies, which are not so popular (contrasted to IBM, Pure Storage, HP). But on the other hand not for small companies due to costs and business needs. Supporting this type is easy, once configuration has been completed. With presented features it's great storage array.
