Cons
"Technical support needs improvement, as well as the engineering resources, who do the upgrades.""The support needs to be improved because I have found that even simple issues take a long time to be solved."

More Dell EMC Storage Resource Manager Cons →

"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.""The solution lacks the ability to generate reports from Snapshot.""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."
