DOSSIERS

EMC XtremIO vs. NetApp Flash

EMC XtremIO All-Flash Array

Limited scale-out capacity: Can’t intermix different capacity drives and controllers in the same cluster

Extra costs and complexity for data protection/recovery: EMC RecoverPoint ($45k/40 TB) and EMC VPLEX ($90k)

Limited application integration: No VMware VVOL support, and backup to VMWare Site Recovery Manager requires additional purchase

Availability weakness: With XtremIO Data Protection, a single node failure will take down the entire cluster

NetApp All-Flash FAS

Delivers effective capacity sizing that easily scales up, out, or both

Provides built-in replication technologies for mirroring or vaulting data to another array, the cloud, or NetApp AltaVault

Offers full ONTAP9 support, with a full suite of application and virtualization technologies

Enables integration with all leading enterprise applications including VMware, Oracle, SQL, Citrix, Hyper-V, Exchange, SharePoint, etc.

EMC Unity All-Flash

Limited SSD support: Supports only 3.6 TB cMLC SSDs

Requires additional data management purchases: Lacks any data efficiency technology out of the box

Limited data protection: Lacks native backup support and requires external backup program

Controller limitations: Requires periodic controller upgrades to sustain performance

NetApp Flash

Supports high capacity and mixed capacity SSDs up to 15.3TB

Features inline data compaction, compression, and deduplication, translating into higher usable capacity and cost savings

Provides integrated, native backup as well as backup to cloud

Enables seamless scalability, resulting in linear performance improvements with no downtime

Stores backups in native format, making them easily usable for testing and analytics
