What is most valuable?

What I like best about this product is that it is a complete solution, both hardware, and software, by the same vendor.

What needs improvement?

Technical support needs to be improved.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

What is most valuable?

The stability is the most valuable aspect of the solution. The pricing, at least compared to HP, is quite good.

What needs improvement?

The solution needs to provide better integration between this solution and all other kinds of systems.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing on the solution is pretty good. We pay for licensing on a yearly basis.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did use a different solution previously. It was an HP product. The solution was older and we didn't see a new version that met our needs, so we switched over to Dell, which had a very good reputation and price.

What other advice do I have?

We're just customers. We don't have a business relationship with Dell. We're using the version before Unity. I'm not sure the name of it. I'd recommend the solution. I'd rate it nine out of ten overall.
