What do you think of Lenovo ThinkSystem DM Series?

What is our primary use case?

The Lenovo ThinkSystem is used for everything in our company from ERP to BI, for production, PLM, CAD for designing, and everything else.

What needs improvement?

It takes a very long time to enter the management console, as well as to restart the system, and these are things that should be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using Lenovo's ThinkSystem DM series for thirty years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We are satisfied with the stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is available and could be done, but we bought everything that we needed at the beginning. The system covers our needs so we don't have any reason to improve, update, or scale.

What is most valuable?

We prefer the SR650 server system. This version fits our customers' needs best. That's the latest update that we can try to give them.

What needs improvement?

Technical support could be improved for this solution.

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

We can try to make a good offer for our customers, but in Turkey, the difference between the dollar and Turkish lira is very high. Pricing is the hardest part of my job because the price is very high for our customers. We try hard to make the price low for our customers.

What other advice do I have?

Our customers don't invest a lot of money on their IT systems. They always make the initial investment, but they don't upgrade their system. If their systems are okay, they don't want to make any improvements in these systems. I'm a very optimistic person, so I would rate them as seven out of ten.
