For several years, users have relied on traditional physical storage to meet their information needs. Evolving changes, such as server virtualization and the growth of multiple sites throughout a user's network, have placed new demands on how storage is managed and how information is accessed.

To keep pace with these requirements, storage must evolve to deliver methods of freeing data from a physical device. Storage must be able to connect to virtual environments and still provide automation, integration with existing infrastructure, consumption on demand, security, cost efficiency, availability, and security.

The EMC VPLEX family is the next-generation solution for information mobility and access within, across, and between data centers. It is the first platform in the world that delivers both Local and Distributed Federation.

EMC VPLEX Local - license - 1 storage device is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from RecoverPoint allows us to replicate non-EMC vendor storage arrays. Valuable Features:* For non-disruptive migrations* For replicating non-EMC vendor storage arrays using RecoverPoint* High availability using VPLEX Metro* Used as additional read cache for storage arraysImprovements to My Organization:We have see performance improvement in our databases. We can use older arrays for archiving.Use of Solution:I have used VPLEX for over five years.Stability Issues:We have not had any stability issues.Scalability Issues:While scaling VPLEX from 2-engine to 4-engine, you need to be careful with the design connecting to VMAX. In our environment, we encountered an imbalance on VPLEX BE ports. But, we resolved that issue with the help of EMC.Technical Support:Technical support is exceptional.Previous Solutions:We did not previously use a different solution.Initial Setup:Initial setup was a little bit complex when connecting to VMAX.Other Solutions Considered:We evaluated IBM SVC.Other Advice:Initial architecture is important. It will help you to scale-out the solution easily.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:We are a partner to EMC.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clustering allows us to replicate our data transparently. Valuable Features:Clustering (Metro or Geo). It helps organizations to instantly replicate their data to the backup site, while making this totally transparent to the end users.Improvements to My Organization:It enables our customers to instantly distribute their block data across two different sites.Room for Improvement:Maybe setup a one-to-many cluster, instead of just a 1-to-1. If EMC could come up with a way to establish a cluster from one VPLEX to many VPLEX(s), that would allow organizations to be able to have more than one copy of their data, and therefore have one, or many, backup (or disaster recovery) sites.Use of Solution:I have used VPLEX for three years.Stability Issues:We have not had any stability issues.Scalability Issues:We have not had any scalability issues.Technical Support:Technical support is excellent.Previous Solutions:We did not have any previous solutions.Initial Setup:The procedure is very clear and easy to follow.Other Solutions Considered:We evaluated EMC RecoverPoint.Other Advice:It’s a great product; very reliable. Just get trained and understand all the concepts around EMC VPLEX.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:We are EMC partners.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from We can move disks online without disruption to the environment. The production environment needs improvement. Valuable Features:The ability to move disks online without disruption to the environment.Ability to create geographically distributed clusters.Improvements to My Organization:Possibility to replicate volumes with storage devices from multiple vendors.Room for Improvement:The production environment needs improvement.Use of Solution:I have used VPLEX for five years.Stability Issues:We experienced increases in latency in accesses to disks and some bugs on engines.Scalability Issues:I did not have problem with scalability.Technical Support:There were delays in solving problems.Previous Solutions:I have two solutions: HPE 3PAR and VPLEX.Initial Setup:It is very laborious to allocate volumes on servers.Cost and Licensing Advice:The VPLEX, along with the RecoverPoint price, can raise the price a lot.Other Solutions Considered:Due to the large number of models and different brands it is a very good solution to virtualize volumes.Other Advice:Evaluate the native features and a possibility of a good integration with the RecoverPoint.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Volume replication can be done in almost real time. Valuable Features:Volume replication in almost real time, across metro distances.Improvements to My Organization:With the help of EMC VPLEX, we improved the architecture of the geographic redundant infrastructure our application required.Room for Improvement:Cost. This is really expensive.Use of Solution:I’ve used VPLEX for six months, during the architecture and implementation phase of the project.Technical Support:I was in contact with presales support only, which did a great job.Previous Solutions:We did use a previous solution, but it had a totally different architecture. With the help of EMC VPLEX we simplified the architecture and improved the response time.Initial Setup:The setup is pretty complex, since the solution is stretched across two sites at metro distances.Other Solutions Considered:At the time of the project, I was not aware of any similar product.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from We do data migrations without disruption. It could support more backend storage per unit. Valuable Features:Based on our requirements, we bought this product for doing online data migrations without data disruption, but we realized that there is a limit to backend storage that can be encapsulate to it. Hence, we ended up spending more money of buying additional VPLEXs to support more backend storage, which in turn came out as an expensive solution for us.Improvements to My Organization:We don't see any improvement in the organizational functions.Room for Improvement:If it can support more backend storage per VPLEX.Use of Solution:I have used EMC VPLEX for three years.Stability Issues:We have had stability issues. It adds another layer of connectivity and hence another layer of single point of failure.Scalability Issues:We never went into a situation of upgrading/scaling out the engines on the VPLEX.Previous Solutions:Our main motive was to perform data migrations across the data centers from one environment to another and that is why we bought this product. But we ended up doing database and host-based data migrations due to the complexity of the product, which adds another layer of connectivity. For a new application setup, it worked like a charm.Initial Setup:It was straightforward to deploy the VPLEX, but the trick was the encapsulation of existing live applications to the VPLEX. It would required downtime.Cost and Licensing Advice:It’s a bit of an expensive solution if you have multiple storage arrays that need to be encapsulated.Other Solutions Considered:We were recommended by EMC to use this product for our dynamic environment where we do a lot of data migrations in and out.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
