I chose Dell because of the price. It's fair enough pricing for a first-time company to purchase it - especially VxRack. Otherwise, Nutanix and HP are expensive. More expensive than Dell VxRack. In general, the companies purchase the solutions and the partner companies are responsible to deploy it and install it. But in our case, we depend on ourselves to deploy and install it. So we don't add more cost, only the standard licensing cost.

VxRail vs. Dell EMC PowerFlex VxRail provides stable solutions for technical problems while at the same time not being too expensive for a company to invest in. Even if the user is working with a limited budget the platform offers freedom of choice and a number of different options. In contrast, Dell EMC PowerFlex does run on the more expensive side and cannot offer the same level of cost-effective solution. VxRail is able to provide both an ability to upgrade the system with an ever-growing library of resources as well as provide powerful processors.This is something that I greatly appreciate. Being able to simply add upgrades to the system without necessarily having to worry about the system being bogged down makes it invaluable. The ability that it provides to apply updates to the system with ease is something worthy of note. If you add this to the fact that VxRail runs on multiple cores at 2 gigahertz or higher then that means that in terms of ability, the VxRail is difficult to match. In terms of usability, it is hard to argue that VxRail delivers. It is pretty simple and easy to both set up and manage the VxRail system. Once the system is set up, all of the management tools are centrally located to assist in providing ease of use. The Dell EMC PowerFlex combines reliability and ease of management. Its connection to alternate storage locations makes it both reliable and an excellent choice. Management teams can use it with ease, because all of the tools are located in one location. Conclusion Both systems offer stable solutions, an ability to upgrade the system, and ease of use for management teams. In terms of cost VxRail is more cost effective and is also more intuitive to use than the Dell EMC PowerFlex.

VxRail is a hyper converged infrastructure. While PowerFlex appliance is a flexible solution with a small starting point and massive scale potential.
