Product Reviews
Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Block and NAS on multiple VNX's are all managed from the same Unisphere GUI, but with the functionality/flexibility, the interface is more complex. Valuable Features:Block and NAS on multiple VNX's are all managed from the same Unisphere GUI. Plus, it has great data migration tools e.g. EMCopy.Improvements to My Organization:Unisphere provides a one-stop go-to place to manage all my VNX storage arrays, saving me time, and screen space.Room for Improvement:I preferred HP EVA over Clariion for block due to the simpler GUI, but the VNX (that uses Clariion-like block) appears more complex due to the flexibility it ultimately offers. It has more functionality/flexibility which means a more complex interface. But, all things considered, Unisphere is a very good interface. It doesn't seem too fast though, but that could be the environment rather than the VNX product, to be fair.Use of Solution:I've used it for four years, nine if you include when it was Clariion.Deployment Issues:No issues encountered.Stability Issues:No issues encountered.Scalability Issues:No issues encountered.Customer Service:I don't like the way EMC's Powerlink support is behind a wall. You need to register an account, and join that account with your product serial numbers to open up the support pages and downloads for your products. As a consultant, I find that far too restrictive.Technical Support:They are very good if you engage with them, so very high.Previous Solutions:I use whatever my end client has purchased, be it EMC or another product. I don't often get to choose, but I would recommend a VNX if asked.Initial Setup:The documentation is very very good (with the exception of CAVA (optional anti-virus agent). That took some figuring out before I got it working properly, due to a subtle detail with physical/virtual data-movers. Setting one up should only be done with the documentation. never wing it.Implementation Team:Mostly in house, but I've worked with a vendor team post implementation where they test it end to end, and they're excellent.Other Solutions Considered:I didn't choose it, but I would choose it. As mentioned above, I have enjoyed both EMC and HP's offerings in the marketplace. Depending on how simple the customer needs it to be, might sway my recommendation one way or the other, but in terms of functionality, VNX is very very good.Other Advice:Watch the YouTube videos first, they're very good. If you understand what's being said, buy it.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:I am 100% independent with no agreements in place to sell vendors products or recommend anything that I wouldn't put my name to. I do currently work as a contractor for Hewlett-Packard, but our customer happens to use EMC products for their storage. I work on the projects implementing the EMC kit and also data migration using EMC Celerra tools. July 30, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by This SAN series provides us with vendor-specific features in our VMware Hypervisor-based virtualized infrastructure. However, it needs ASIC-based functions. Valuable Features:They have more different/flexible models in the midrange storage area In comparison with other vendors . They have also built in VMware specific features . Lastly, it has reasonable performance/cost.Improvements to My Organization:In a virtualized infrastructure based on VMware Hypervisor, the VNX series SANs provide some useful vendor specific features for us.Room for Improvement:* Storage processor architect for real active/active HA* ASIC based functions are neededUse of Solution:I've used it for about four years.Deployment Issues:No issues encountered.Stability Issues:No issues encountered.Scalability Issues:In comparison to other products, VNX scales out well.Customer Service:It's satisfactory. This company really care for their customers.Technical Support:So far, we have had a response to all our queries from tech support.Previous Solutions:No previous solution was in place.Initial Setup:The deployment procedures are very simple, and based on a step-by-step installation guide.Implementation Team:We implemented our device ourselves .Cost and Licensing Advice:We have preloaded/license free vendor specific feature for VMware infrastructure with EMC VNX Series SAN Systems. It would be a good choice for midrange businesses due to the performance/features and cost. The licensing terms and conditions are a flowing Pay-As-You-Grow method and it's a good option for long term planning.Other Solutions Considered:We only compared different VNX models.Other Advice:Pay attention to the initialization procedure. Also, the reinitialization procedures are very complex after the initial VNX product .Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions. July 2, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by With raid pools, you aren't limited with RAID size, but caching needs to be improved. Valuable Features:* Raid pools* SnapshotsImprovements to My Organization:* With raid pools, you aren't limited with RAID size.* Snapshots will ease your testing on the applications.Room for Improvement:* Caching* Auto-tieringUse of Solution:I've been using block OE 5.32 and file level 7 and the VNX 2 series, block OE 5.33 and file level 8 for six years.Deployment Issues:Not really.Stability Issues:If it's configured properly after sizing, then no.Scalability Issues:No, it's easy to upgrade and expand.Customer Service:It's great.Technical Support:It's great.Previous Solutions:HP EVA and once NetApp, but they both had slow performance and a lack of features so we switched.Initial Setup:The first time was easy, as it was a simple design.Implementation Team:We did it in-house.ROI:It's around 250% over 12 months due to the amount of data that we have.Cost and Licensing Advice:Start with the basic licensing and add upon need. In our market, we need keep the cost of 1TB at less than $1000.Other Solutions Considered:NetApp is better with CIFS and file shares.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:We are considered as a special customer, as we can do implementation as a man in the middle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by It's got some great features, such as fast caching and RecoverPoint, but it's expensive. Valuable Features:* Fast VP* Fast cache* Snap clone* Snap shot* RecoverPoint* SAN copy* Mirror copy* Access LogixUse of Solution:I have worked on CLARiiON and all series of VNX.Implementation Team:I implemented and performed the migration myself.Cost and Licensing Advice:EMC pricing is too expensive, like the Apple brand iPhone in the cellphone market.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
