More Intel Server System Pros »

"They should improve the centralized management interface. When you are going to deploy something, for example, VMware or RedHat, it should be easier to deploy a lot of servers. Now you have to do one at a time.""I would like to see better IOPS, i.e. the disc speed. That is the main limitation for scaling up the number of users.""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.""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."
