What is most valuable?

Previously, the physical trappings of Cisco UCS, Intel chip-sets and UCS Manager were the most useful part of this server system. As we embrace new Intel CPU's, Chip-sets and memory, we are gaining added value from the original UCS design -... more»

How has it helped my organization?

I have a client who is currently managing 1500 servers with two people for a mission-critical retail operation. Previous operations teams using HP and IBM servers required 4x more people to manage the same number of servers.

What needs improvement?

This product comes from Cisco, who is fourth in the worldwide supply chain. That means options take a bit longer to get to their platform, as they insist on doing their own quality validations. Right now, the market is rapidly transitioning... more»

What do you think of Lenovo Blade Servers [EOL]?

Valuable Features The features of this product that I value most are: A datacenter in 8U; you can accommodate 14 servers in a BladeCenter H chassis. Total redundancy in all its components: power, cooling, communications, fiber, administration and blades Stacking features, you can configure several BladeCenters to have redundancy Excellent support in case of any failure (and I am not saying this because I worked for IBM) One point of management The ability to combine Intel, AMD, and POWER blades • Use of Solution I have been using, installing, and implementing this solution for eight years. • Deployment Issues I had no problems installing the equipment. • Stability Issues So far, I have had no stability problems. • Scalability Issues If we talk about...

What do you think of Intel MFSYS25?

Valuable Features Hyper V was the best option in case of server fail-over & Storage option was the best with the VD pools assigned to the server modules • Improvements to My Organization We have improved a lot, and our customers are very satisfied with the product. We're able to set-up multiple VLANs in it. I think that Intel shouldn't have stopped the production of this product. • Room for Improvement I would have like to see them continue it with more disk options in the chassis so in the future we wouldn't need to buy another device for the storage. • Stability Issues There is one regular error which irritates me during production hours. It continually gives us COMPONENT UNFIT ERROR. To fix it, we have to remove and re-fix the blades modules. • Customer...

What is most valuable?

Fitting 40 logical cores and 400GB of RAM into one half-height blade allows me to achieve the density in a cloud environment I aim for. What's more is it handles workloads of 25 VMs and more without any noticeable penalty performance-wise.... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The density achieved by the M630 while maintaining good performance allowed us to cut our hardware footprint by more than half. This makes for a huge cost saving, not only for hardware to maintain and rack space rental costs, but also reduces... more»

What needs improvement?

For a half-height blade, Dell did well with this one, not leaving much room for improvement. The ever-increasing boot time due to ever-increasing POST checks with every new generation makes maintenance tasks somewhat of a headache. That and... more»

What is most valuable?

The Netra Modular System is really cool because unlike all the other Oracle solutions, this is a system that is a lot more agile. It's a technology that's the basis of a converged infrastructure, but it's what we work on -- agile convergence.... more»

How has it helped my organization?

There's a lot benefits with the Netra. First, since it is an agile system, I can mix hypervisors. For free, you're going to get Oracle VM, which is a great hypervisor, but some things don't run well when they're virtualized. They run really... more»

What needs improvement?

What I would love to see is better integration between Enterprise Manager and ES2 switches. That's the one area where the integration isn't as tight as we would like to see. I know that in the new version of Enterprise Manager that's not out... more»
