From a Senior Engineer’s Mouth – EMC Evaluation

The below is from one of our TOP engineers, who is training on and evaluating the EMC Insignia product line this week, along with the rest of our team. So far, so good for EMC!

Remember! SADA ONLY adopts a product line, IF we think it’s good enough for us to use for our internal needs! And that’s completely up to our team of Engineers. We have an ‘eat your own cooking’ mentality when it comes to information technology – and we think that IT solution providers who sell what they don’t use are simply dishonest – doesn’t that make sense?

CLARiiON AX150

    • Support iSCSI 100/1000 Fiber Channel, and cluster with Novell and Windows – flexible

 

    • Uses SATA II – cost effective

 

    • Comparable to other well know SAN technology

 

    • Good overall value

 

    • Dual Core available

 

    • Up to 6TB with Raid5

 

    • Good basic support services


Overall the product looks good for backup to disk (Single Core) or for DATA, Exchange, SQL (Dual Core).

EMC eRoom SMB

    • 5 -250 users

 

    • $995 for 10 users

 

    • SQL Anywhere back-end

 

    • Support most browsers

 

    • Support most operating systems

 

    • 4 templates

 

    • Integrates with Outlook

 

    • No integration with Active Directory

 

    • No integration wit LDAP

 

    • Simple

 

    • Customization limited to modifying set of templates


It’s a good alternative to SharePoint, if they don’t already have Small Business Server 2003, Windows 2000, or Windows 2003 standard, and are looking for something like SharePoint. Could also be used in conjunction with ZEROi. I would say more like 5-50 users though, given that it doesn’t integrate with Active Directory. Note that the standard addition does.
