What is most valuable?

We used to have many physical servers spending energy and space in our data center. Now most of our servers are virtually running in a blade server infrastructure. We use the BladeSystem, ProLiant, and 3PAR for storage and we're trying to... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It's about standardizing the infrastructure. Now we're only using one physical infrastructure and one software platform for the management.

What needs improvement?

It would be nice if it could integrate with cloud systems.

What is most valuable?

Why pick a UCS blade over a Dell, HPE or Lenovo system? The answer depends on what application I need to run. If I want a small-scale, 3-4 server application space in a localized area, I want a rack mount, for a price advantage. If I need a... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Previously, we focused on CPUs and servers, relying on the Intel cadence for change. With Cisco UCS, we became network-centric and changed our mindset to abstract the server, making it a stateless object for workloads. Managing blade servers... more»

What needs improvement?

Cisco is behind as far as SSD qualifications and options allowed, relative to other vendors, but that is in keeping with their philosophy of a stateless working environment. If I add a unique storage attribute to my blades, I encumber it with... more»

What is most valuable?

In the data center, you see customers with a lot of blade enclosures and a lot of servers, and this solution works fine. I have one customer in Belgium that I know that is testing it, and they're quite happy about it. There are some challenges, but it is software. For software, you have developers. The hardware is there.

What needs improvement?

With the changing IT demands, they need to change more often and faster. We need applications to model tomorrow’s needs. We need more applications for changing users. There is a need for a more optimized infrastructure. For instance, I have a customer with 20 blade enclosures. In those 20 blade enclosures, there are 40 management modules that you need to update... more»

What is most valuable?

Fault tolerance is the heart of what a NonStop is. The high availability of NonStop systems comes from close cooperation between the hardware and software. Every component in an HPE NonStop server is duplicated. If one component fails, there... more»

How has it helped my organization?

There is never any downtime due to the way the hardware and software interact. They are both fault tolerant and, therefore, give a robust service.

What needs improvement?

This is very hard to say. How do you improve on perfection? If pushed, then the only thing I can think of would be utilities provided by the vendor. Nearly all of the utilities are provided by third-party partners. As such, they are pretty... more»

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»
