I'm not a user of object storage solutions, but a seller. I provide Dell ECS to clients. Five people use Dell ECS within my organization. Dell ECS is a solution I would recommend to others. My rating for Dell ECS is seven out of ten because IBM has a better object storage solution.

We have experience using both NetApp and Dell EMC ECS in our company. We also have experience with Dell EMC VNX and FlexPod. We are trying to retire Dell EMC ECS. We're trying to migrate our whole data center into the cloud, so we'll no longer require usage of Dell EMC ECS. I don't currently have a cost comparison, so it won't be fair to comment on the pricing for Dell EMC ECS. People in our company who are Dell EMC ECS SMEs are happy, so I'm giving a rating of nine out of ten for the solution. We are also trying to retire it, but I see that those who are working with it have sympathy for it, so it's a nine.

The solution is easy to manage. It does not require more storage. There are around two users making use of the solution. I rate the solution as an eight out of ten.

We plan to continue selling this solution, but we need them to support it on more than just a case by case basis because it takes too long. It depends on the Dell EMC resources but we cannot rely on their distributors for help. It's not a good enough business model. I would recommend this solution to others who are interested in using it. That said, there are a few improvements needed, including that it could be cheaper. I would rate this product a seven out of ten.

We're just customers. We don't have a business relationship with Dell. We're using the version before Unity. I'm not sure the name of it. I'd recommend the solution. I'd rate it nine out of ten overall.

There are many ways to make products better, although, for the purpose that our customers are using this solution, you can't do it better. It is a product that I recommend. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
