PowerEdge C Review

Provides a great management platform but more flexibility is needed

What is our primary use case?

I was running them as hosts for my virtual or private cloud — we were hosting several servers, virtual servers.

What is most valuable?

The management platform is great.

What needs improvement?

I can't think of anything that needs to be improved at the moment. A lot of evolution is occurring with Blade PowerEdge, including, what call, the blade servers. The VxRail should be opened to allow other virtualization platforms to be used. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using PowerEdge C for over 10 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

PowerEdge C is very stable. We hardly experience any downtime. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

In terms of scalability, as long as the infrastructure is set up well, adding a host to the environment is very easy — I don't see any issues with that. A lot depends on the design that you put in place. 

How are customer service and technical support?

On a scale from one to ten, I would give the technical support a rating of eight. I am very satisfied with them.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was very straightforward.

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

PowerEdge C is very expensive, but personally, I think it's worth the price.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of seven. If they lowered the price, I would give them a higher rating.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
