We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable features are remote management and iDRAC."

"Virtualization and distributed power management are good and valuable features."
"This solution has absolutely fulfilled our needs well."
"The reconstructive compatibility with VMware ESXi is the most valuable."

"The initial setup is very good, not complex at all."
"It is user friendly and easy to configure."
"Features like partitions are useful."
"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."
"Support can be better."
"Dell's solution was cheaper than HP's solution."
"It's not a very expensive solution."
"It is expensive. The price needs to be more competitive. Additional licenses are required to enable some of the features for scalability."
"The price of this solution is reasonable. It's very comparable to similar solutions."
"The server is a one-time purchase, but the support is on a subscription basis."
"It's a one-time licensing fee for the device and we pay a quota per year for the support."
"The licensing comes with a warranty."
"Dell EMC PowerEdge Rack Servers are very expensive."
