The main problem with VPLEX is that we need to increase the HC ports to fully migrate it to the cloud — we need at least 10 HC ports. We need to decrease our SAN in order to put the machine exclusively on the Cloud. With Dell VPLEX, there are some bugs with Broadcom. As this bug is very critical, they have had to add a new feature on the 6.2.4 version to fix it. VPLEX is currently on Fiber Channel. The future is ethernet, not Fiber Channel.

The administration is difficult, so we want to add hyper-converged infrastructure. I would like to have site-to-site replication capability for applications. This is something that is available in other products and it would make new sites very easy and fast to set up.

We struck a great deal with Dell EMC, so for us, VPLEX was not very expensive. Because our contract is so big, they gave us a great deal. Also, there were no hidden costs.
