Priced well, scalable, stable, easy to use and install

Pros and Cons

  • "It is very fast and easy to use."
  • "The monitoring is an area that needs some improvement."

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution with Blade servers and another application.

What is most valuable?

It is very fast and easy to use.

What needs improvement?

We have only just used this solution for a small period of time, it is difficult to fully assess it. We need more time to learn and know all of its components.

The monitoring is an area that needs some improvement.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for six months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's very stable. To date, we don't have any issues with the stability of this solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It has the ability to scale up, but we have not scaled it as we are using it for a small project.

We have plans to increase our usage in a few months.

How are customer service and technical support?

We don't contact HPE directly. We deal with our reseller.

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

Previously, we were using IBM Power Servers.

The support for Power Servers is too expensive.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is easy.

What about the implementation team?

We had the help of a retailer to implement this solution.

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

The price is not very expensive. 

When you compare with the other vendors, it's in the middle in terms of pricing.

What other advice do I have?

It's a very good product to use for medium-sized companies.

I would rate HPE Integrity a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

When you open up a support case with Dell they send a partner to assist you and in our experience, they are lacking knowledge about the solution. There are times when you need professional support from the vendor that knows the solution well. 

Here in my country, it has been a problem for Dell to keep offices here. This has been a problem for other vendors too, such as HP.

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

Dell PowerEdge M price is comparable to other solutions but cheaper than IBM. However, the IBM solution is a higher grade solution whereas Dell PowerEdge M is a medium-level solution.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have evaluated HPE solutions.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others.

I rate Dell PowerEdge M an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
