"The solution works well. It's very reliable."
"The capacity to migrate machines onto VPLEX is great — it's very clean. We can migrate machines and add arrays easily."
"The most valuable feature is deduplication, as we have no duplication in the snapshots."
"In OnCommand Unified Manager, we can monitor the entire cluster as well as configure data protection through Unified Manager."
"Snapshot is a valuable feature."
"One of the main features is the ability to run the block and file storage from the same system."
"With Dell VPLEX, there are some bugs with Broadcom."
"I would like to have site-to-site replication capability for applications."
"The price is a problem with EMC due to the fact that it's more expensive than the other vendors."
"There could be better performance in block storage and the GUI could be improved because not every operation is available. You need some operations in the CLI."
"The solution lacks the ability to generate reports from Snapshot."
"At present, OnCommand Unified Manager has just the monitoring and data protection features. It would be better to add some features for entire cluster management and storage management. Automation should also be included so that instead of separately accessing Unified Manager and OnCommand Workflow Automation, we can work in a single window. It is very much required."
