"The set up is complex"
"In terms of improvement, it should also offer a hyper-converged option."
"We have had some issues with the vendor's support that we have received.

There are times when you need professional support from the vendor that knows the solution well."
"Dell PowerEdge M needs to run AMD CPUs on it."

HPE Synergy should also support the latest processors provided by Intel."
"The profiles aren't so easy to work with."
"Technical support was time consuming and unsatisfactory. The initial product setup was complex, lasing around three weeks to a month."
