Dell EMC vSAN Ready Nodes Room for Improvement

Pre-sales Consultant Engineer at a tech services company with 51-200 employees

I think the upgrades could be improved. If you compare it to other HCI solutions, like VxRail, the upgrade process is fully automated whereas on vSAM ReadyNodes it's a bit complicated and we have to do it manually. Finding some way to automate this process to make it a smarter, more perfect solution would be an improvement, it would make the solution more flexible, easier to administer, and would make my life easier.

They have to be more compatible.

When you are looking at Nutanix versus vSan with VMware, the operating system licenses are often difficult for those people in the mid-tier organizations that do not have access to ELAs.

They are heading in the right direction and moving to integrate everything with a hybrid cloud, and moving workloads back and forth. 

Also, the scalability could be better.

The initial setup is slightly complex and could be improved.

Compatibility with other hardware nodes needs to be improved. I want to be able to mix and match the hardware nodes if I am elsewhere and continue using hyper-converged.
