We performed a comparison between Dell PowerEdge FX and Oracle SPARC Servers based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Rack Servers solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The best feature is PowerEdge's ability to stack up eight blade servers in one 2U chassis."
"We like PowerEdge for its high-performance computing architecture."
"The features that I have found most valuable are that it has very robust servers and a very heavy load. We've been working on servers now for 10 years and those servers are still up and running. Those servers are still very powerful until today."
"The power efficiency is very good and nice."
"The remote management is great."
"It has extremely high performance, and it is easy to manage."
"The processor is very helpful and the licensing is very flexible."
"I have found the LDAP facilities most valuable. In addition, I like the CPU."
"The Oracle server is very powerful. They are more powerful and durable compared to Intel hardware. Which has been a benefit to our organization."
"The positioning of the power supply is not ideal. Both of them are on the same side, so you need to untie the cabling when you're installing the server. Another thing is storage separation. The storage can only be used by a particular server blade. I want the ability to use a storage unit for more than one server."
"It should have more simplified management. It is a common problem where vendors think that they have simplified a solution, but the users don't look at it in the same way. A vendor thinks that there are only ten steps for a task, but we consider them as many steps. It should also have more support for NVMe. For high performance and speed, there should also be more network cards for the fiber channel and ethernet."
"They could improve from a manufacturing perspective."
"Before the cloud solution and virtualization, we relied on Dell hardware from specific vendors. The lifecycle for cloud infrastructure is shorter than it used to be. We need a longer lifecycle from the IT supplier providing the computing solution."
"In terms of the cost, it is a little bit high, meaning, there is some difference in the cost compared to the equivalent product with HP servers."
"I don't have any technical issues, but I would like to see the commercial side improve as compared to all other OEMs."
"I would like to see a reduced price point."
"The solution could improve by giving a clear roadmap about the future. I'm not seeing a lot of improvements on the OS side of the software. They need to work more on the operating system."
"They need some sort of modeling because IBM has different types of models."
