Initial set up complicated, but after, easy to configure and use, many packages available

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution integrated well."
  • "The set up is complex"

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend using engineers to help make the design for the setup of the solution. This will allow for a clear view of what is needed for your environment, they can identify issues and know exactly what packages are needed before purchasing. I rate Dell PowerEdge M a seven out of ten.

Pros and Cons

  • "I have compared Dell EMC to other solutions and have found it to be good. The SAN and LAN traffic, manageability, and upgradability are all good."

What other advice do I have?

For organizations that don't have a blade system, they should start with planning in terms of how to segregate their systems in terms of LAN and SAN systems. My advice would be to consider that both SAN and LAN traffic are ensured to come together and not separate. I would rate the Blade Servers a nine out of ten.
