What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the combined management in one box. It is space-saving, and in fact, you can have four Blade servers in one box, all sharing the same storage and network card. A 10 GB… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Using this solution has lowered costs by including SAN storage, networking, and servers all in one chassis. We used to have half a rack taken with clustered servers, storage devices, and network… more»

What needs improvement?

Management of storage and networking is web-based, slow, and difficult. I would like a Windows application to manage this instead of using the web interface. My Dell account manager promised to help… more»

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

What is most valuable?

This is all-inclusive with shared storage and the servers housed in one chassis, including the networking. It's a data center in one small box, which is a good value for the customers who are small in size and cannot afford a large investment. It is simple to use and it's user-friendly.

What needs improvement?

This solution is good but, with multiple Chassis, it would be a good thing to have one console for management and integration with utilization software. In the next release, I would like to see some auto-tiering features. There are other enterprise storage solutions that have them included.

What other advice do I have?

I have learned that it is better to keep it simple and to have good management. I think this solution is one of the best in the Dell portfolio. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
