Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The most valuable feature is its stability.""It has extremely high performance, and it is easy to manage.""The features that I have found most valuable are that it has very robust servers and a very heavy load. We've been working on servers now for 10 years and those servers are still up and running. Those servers are still very powerful until today."

Cons
"I think that Dell has full documentation on their products, but it needs to be improved for this one.""It should have more simplified management. It is a common problem where vendors think that they have simplified a solution, but the users don't look at it in the same way. A vendor thinks that there are only ten steps for a task, but we consider them as many steps. It should also have more support for NVMe. For high performance and speed, there should also be more network cards for the fiber channel and ethernet.""In terms of the cost, it is a little bit high, meaning, there is some difference in the cost compared to the equivalent product with HP servers."

More Dell EMC PowerEdge FX Cons »

"The design, in terms of power efficiency, can be improved.""It would be nice if the rack servers had an HCI solution as an option.""It would be easier if the remote connection to the server could be done through the USB port. From the server, we should be able to connect to a laptop or a management workstation through a USB port.""There are certain aspects, features, and functionality on the motherboard that need improvement.""The only thing that could be improved is documentation. During the installation, it would be good to have some information about how is it going.""Until they get new technology and density, it would be nice to see four nodes in a one-year package instead of a three-year package.""I would like to see a virtual view of the solution after creating and configuring it.""System security can be improved. They can add more power and security for ESXi version 7."
