Vblock [EOL]: Cloud
Senior System Specialist at Burns & McDonnell

It is probably due for a replacement because of its age. Usage-wise, we are trying to move things to a cloud installation in place of the on-premises, so it's probably going to be phased out in some form, eventually.

Work with your local representatives from Dell EMC to see if it fits your needs. They have multiple options and versions.

It's been very reliable, the support is very good, and it fit our needs very well, but our needs are constantly changing.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

I think the MTG inside HP could be improved. It would simplify quoting for services. When you get a quote from HP now, they tend to quote separately for services and the product. This makes it difficult to try to quote for the client and to integrate the solution. 

For the future, it would be good to see integration with cloud services. Our customers want to share the solution, currently on-premise, to the cloud, and it's sometimes difficult to implement. It would be great if they could bridge the two.

Dell EMC VxBlock System: Cloud
Architect at a manufacturing company with 1,001-5,000 employees

We evaluated hosted cloud options from several suppliers and also some other hyper-converged solutions. That said, we decided, from a cost perspective, it made more sense to run the VxBlock. It was more cost-effective than having a hosted cloud platform. It also provided us with more flexibility because some of our platforms were not suited to run on hosted cloud environments, where you don't have access to the virtualization layer and the virtualization software. When we ran our own private cloud on the VxBlock, we had the ability to interface directly into the virtualization platform, which was a requirement for some of our applications.

We didn't choose a hyper-converged platform at that point in time as the VxBlock provided a better performing platform. We could obtain high throughput, through the VxBlock, than what the hyper-converged solutions could give us at that stage.

We deemed Dell to be the leader in the market. They were the first to enter the market with a converged platform. And I think they'd more of a market presence at that point in time than anybody else.

IBM PurePower System: Cloud
Head of IT Infrastructure Division at ADM

My advice to others would be the following: if you have a traditional application, like core banking, or transactional, or something that has to do with money, it is better to go with IBM. The reason I'm saying this is because it is more stable and easier to monitor. But if you are looking for the newest architecture of the application cloud, you should go with either hyper-converged or converged. 

I would like to see better management and high availability in the next release of this program. With classical architectural systems, it's more delicate and difficult to have a high availability of systems. But with hyper-converged systems, we can have it in the easiest way. 

On a scale from one to ten, I will rate this program an eight.
