"It is stable and easy to manage."

More Intel Server System Pros »

"Configurations could be simplified.""They should work with Microsoft to make licensing costs better. That's because the physical servers have processors with all these cores, and Microsoft now licenses Windows virtual server desktops based on the number of cores and the serving servers. So, if you got to build 10 or 20 servers on that desktop, you got to license them all with Microsoft. They should have a partnership with Microsoft to decrease the virtual licensing of servers in partnerships so that when you purchase the servers, you also get licensing for Microsoft on top of them. That's because it gets very expensive to license virtual operating systems to run on physical servers.""Sometimes, there are connectivity issues and the server is not able to connect to our SAN.""The technical support is pretty good, however, they could be a bit faster and more responsive.""The solution should work to be more scalable.""The most pressing issue is that downloads depend at present on the current period.""The technical support could be a little faster.""The implementation should be simplified, it is not straightforward."
