We can now create machines easily without waiting to provide more hardware

What is our primary use case?

We use the Lenovo Flex System to make virtual machines on VMware for all our frontend applications. We use it to virtualize our frontend or all our Microsoft applications, in addition to our Linux applications.

Pros and Cons

  • "The stability and speed are always good. The processor is good and it's still working with our loads."
  • "The user-interface needs improvement, because they have an application from which we have to manage the whole system and all the infrastructure. This application is not working at our premises, because of some problem with the hardware itself. So although we brought it with our systems, and we used it to manage all the systems: the storage, the switches, and everything, nevertheless we have to support every part alone and enter the interface in one-by-one."

What other advice do I have?

My advice is to get the three years maintenance and to follow up with Lenovo International, in addition to Lenovo Cairo. We call our partner in Egypt and they have complete support from Lenovo. I would rate the overall product as eight of ten. It's stable, it works well, and we have had no problem with it for a long time. The missing two points are because when we started we had some issues which are now solved but it took some time to resolve.

Very stable, we use it for private cloud services.

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is for private cloud services.

Pros and Cons

  • "The Lenovo Flex System is very stable."
  • "It does not have the same module flexibility that was present in IBM Blade. On the Blade System, I was able to choose between the Cisco module, or BMC module. Since the switch to Lenovo, I have not had the same choice of modules, only the BMC modules."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend Lenovo.
