What do you like most about Pavilion Hyperparallel Flash Array?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
The high performance is very valuable, as well as the enterprise reliability features.
There's lots of flexibility in how we use the resources while also maintaining a small footprint.
We have been able to consolidate storage into Pavilion. Pavilions are our only SANs because it is a bring your own disk solution. When new drives come out, we are able to take out half of the drives in the system, put in new drives, move our VMs over to the new drives, take the other drives out, and populate those with new drives. Then, we are suddenly twice as dense as we were before. NVMe flash is only going to get denser and cheaper so we can make use of that every couple of years by just throwing newer disks into it at a fraction of the cost of a new SAN.
I'm researching flash storage arrays. I'm looking for advice about which of these two options is better - IBM flash 9200 or EMC VMAX8000.
