Overall Satisfaction with VxRail

VxRail is in use at the college for all types of workloads. It has handled MSSQL, IIS, Exchange, File Storage, and other workloads. The VxRail is used across the whole organization for all major/minor services and workloads. The VxRail was put into place to remove an aging traditional server/storage deployment. The issues resolved included latency, storage and compute capacity and expandability.
  • Stability, the platform has not had any major issues or minor issues since deployment.
  • Management, the VxRail platform has a single plane of glass for management.
  • Scaling, VxRail is easily scaled for more resources.
  • The software release cycle is slow compared to general release of software. Particularly with VMware based releases.
  • We did not measure ROI on the purchase.
At the time we had a deployment of SimpliVity which did not measure up. We demo'd other products such as HyperFlex. We appreciated the ease of use of the VxRail and the overall value.
For general workloads the VxRail is a beast. For our deployments, we did not see any scenarios where it was not appropriate.
