Overall Satisfaction with Dell PowerEdge R

Dell EMC Unity is used across the entire organization. It is used as a dedicated SAN as well as a shared customer environment SAN. It is used for hosting applications from basic web server all the way through large database applications.
  • Dell EMC Unity once stood up is reliable and performs to expectations.
  • Dell EMC Unity has improved on the end user management experience over their older product suites
  • Difficult to configure and set up out of the box compared to newer solutions in the market
  • We have gone away from Unity as a future product and have moved towards Nimble or Pure to fit the same needs.
We were directed to buy these arrays and didn't have the ability to evaluate the other arrays. Once we evaluated the other products in the market that compete with Unity we saw that the younger, more built from the ground up arrays, had much better features, software, and ease of use.
Dell EMC Unity, in my honest opinion, is basically an all-flash VNX with a better interface. There is ZERO innovation coming out of EMC. If you want a company that's going to give you good support and be proud of their product instead of their profit margin, I strongly urge you to look elsewhere as there are better and more innovative products in the marketplace.
Very cumbersome compared to other vendors in the same marketplace.
