Ease of use.

How has it helped my organization?

Our requirement is 99.9999% uptime. That is what we have experienced from these servers.

The technical support is the best.

We have used SGI, Sun, and IBM and now Fujitsu. The procurement is thru open or limited tender only.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is mixed between being straightforward and complex.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We have well-defined process for the technical evaluation of pricing.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluate all the responses to our requirements. After the selection is made for two to three products. Then commercials are checked and the best price solution is selected.

What other advice do I have?

Check the literature and reviews available for the product. Ask and clarify all the queries before freezing on the requirements.
