Strong, easy to manage and monitor, and have very few failures

What is our primary use case?

We have installed VMware on DL Server, and the operating system sits on this DL Server host.

Pros and Cons

  • "This is all I've ever used. These servers are strong, and they have very few failures on them. They are also easy to manage and monitor."
  • "They are pretty solid servers, but, just like all servers, they become obsolete after some time. They can maybe provide a console to monitor the health of the servers. There should be some kind of console to which you can log in to remotely check on the health of a server, even when the server is off. The servers that we have are only scalable to some extent. They have got a limited amount of hard drive that you can insert. Their scalability should be improved."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend these servers. I would rate HPE ProLiant DL Servers a nine out of ten.

What other advice do I have?
