If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Dell EMC VPLEX, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give Dell EMC VPLEX a rating of eight. Due to the bug with Broadcom, we have had a massive crisis on VPLEX. This little bug has caused roughly one thousand machines to go down. For this reason, I can't give it a higher rating.
My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to use HCI. It has more features than the traditional approach, the administration is easier, and the performance is better. Troubleshooting something that is all-in-one will also be easier. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
