What do you think of HPE ProLiant DL Servers?

Valuable Features They are simple, modular and great machines to work with. They offer the best management interface. • Improvements to My Organization Their modularity offers good local storage and connectivity options. We can expand the disk capacity, processor and memory based on our needs. The solution is easy to maintain. • Room for Improvement Boot times are relatively slow. Legacy BIOS options are tricky, but discoverable and manageable with experience. • Use of Solution We have been using this solution for around seven years. • Stability Issues There haven’t really been any stability issues, but we have faced server rebooting during high CPU usage periods. • Scalability Issues There have not been any scalability issues. The solution is extremely...

What do you think of IBM Power Systems?

Valuable Features Flexibility and reliability are the two features that are probably the most important to us. • Improvements to My Organization We get better performance out of our applications, out of our databases running on Power, than we would on anything else that we have looked at. • Room for Improvement I think they could use a little more work in the upgrading of the OS, how that could happen as non-interrupting, but I think they are working on that. • Scalability Issues Scalability is awesome because we can move from POWER8 to POWER9 when the new servers come out. It allows us to scale out, add new servers underneath it, buy new equipment and add it into the datacenter. • Initial Setup It was pretty straightforward. The partition mobility helps a lot. ...
