Super Micro SuperBlade Review

​It's best for deployments in SMBs with low server requirements, but the hardware standards could be higher.

Valuable Features

It's an affordable and scalable device that fits requirements for a SMB with a tight server budget. It's also easy to work with.

Improvements to My Organization

We enjoy working with the product.

Room for Improvement

I don't think there are any areas that need improvement as we are happy with the product, but they do need to keep their hardware standards up.

Use of Solution

I've used it for more than two years.

Deployment Issues

There were no issues because we planned it weeks in advance.

Stability Issues

No issues encountered.

Scalability Issues

No issues encountered.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

It's good.

Technical Support:

We provide technical support, so we just need a good warranty and returns policy.

Previous Solutions

It is now our company standard, and we switched to this product as it's from a reliable brand.

Initial Setup

It is quick and easy with skilled technicians.

Implementation Team

We did it in-house.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

We are a SMB and we cater to the SMB market. That means that for us, the cost is the main factor, and if we can get good quality for less, we will always opt for that option.

Other Solutions Considered

We also looked at options from Dell, but we chose this because of the cost.

Other Advice

It's best for small deployments for small SMBs with low server requirements.

Super Micro Servers are economical for the size and spec you get. It's good hardware for a 3 - 5 year retention policy.
