I am using the Dell EqualLogic PS series for file storage. We keep our VMware on the solution but we do not use many of the features of this solution, we mainly use it for storage.

We primarily use the solution for storage, and for its fan.

We primarily use the solution as an array and as a backup. I actually have two.

This is like a primary storage area for all our machines. We have a virtual environment where we have a number of virtual machines and a number of ESX hosts. We are in basically a VM-ware environment. Therefore, we have ESX hosts there, and those hosts are connected. All the virtual machines and user data and everything is stored on this.

EqualLogic is part of our production database. It is fast and reliable. It is our production SAN (Storage Area Network), so we always use it. It is always on and always running 24/7.

* We ran a large data housing solution that contained billions of data files. * We also used the product for VM storage and file server storage.

We use it for virtual machines and data. It performed well but it's end-of-life now. We have to refresh everything. It's still working but it's end of support for the product.

The number one is probably the scalability potential of the product. If I need to increase the capacity, I cannot. That's the main problem for us. If I need to have more space or more capacity, I need to replace the product. It would be ideal if we could scale without replacing the box itself.

We'd like the solution to have bigger sizing. We need more space and we can't get any. We'd love more memory storage space.

We're just customers. We don't have a business relationship with Dell. We're working with model PS 4100. While this is an older model, and technically no longer available, Dell does have other great models that are very useful. I'd definitely recommend this solution is the environment was the right fit. In general, I would rate the solution at an eight out of ten.

We are customers and end-users of Dell products. We just have an account that we've used and we've done business with them for years. The solution has been discontinued by Dell for four, five years. Therefore, it's not exactly up-to-date. We couldn't update it if we wanted to. They don't make it anymore. It's not something a company can just buy. In general, we have been very happy with the product. I would rate it at an eight out of ten.
