Good performance and easy to work with
We use VMware hypervisor on Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers. We use the PowerEdge storage with iSCSI We use these servers for the hypervisor, and we have many Windows servers on them. They work very well, and they have a very good performance. The performance of Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers is very…

Simple to use and compatible with all other operating systems
Our primary use case is virtualization with a Huawei hypervisor called Fusion Compute. We also use this solution because of its simplicity and its compatibility with other operating systems The most valuable thing about Huawei FusionServer is the fact that it's easy to use. In the next release,…

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"The solution's stability is good...The solution's scalability is good."
"We particularly appreciate the iDRAC feature, especially in its latest versions, for its capabilities in remote server management and comprehensive monitoring."
"The maintenance and remote monitoring are valuable."
"Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers powered by Intel are easy to use, are easy to manage with OpenManage, and have extended support for five years."
"We used to have HPE. Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers are much easier to use and manage."
"The availability is excellent."
"The Xeon CPU makes the system work very well and fast. I like this type of CPU. It has helped to improve the performance of targeted workloads by 70%."
"This means that if you would scale up linearly, one person could take care of 3000 Servers. That's quite impactful. Google published three people for 1000. We are doing one person for 3000. That allows us to free human resources for other tasks."
"The most valuable thing about Huawei FusionServer is the fact that it's easy to use."
 

Cons

"The security of this solution could be improved. We have very specific needs as an engineering company and require multiple layers of security. This is not offered when implementing the Dell hardware."
"It would be easier if the remote connection to the server could be done through the USB port. From the server, we should be able to connect to a laptop or a management workstation through a USB port."
"The solution could improve by making the warranty policy better, which is a little bit complex because our local service partner Smart Technologies has long delays. Whenever we open any case for any customer, it takes more than five days. If we could handle it by ourselves, we could have the issue solved in one day. They should work on a way to fix these delays."
"In terms of the iDRAC software, when selecting systems, especially multiple systems to upgrade, there's really no way to confirm that specific systems are selected."
"The price is acceptable but could be improved."
"It would be nice if it were all included as a part of PowerEdge so you can check your server's performance and availability online."
"The versions that I work with, they used to max out on memory, on RAM, quickly, so I'd want to think in the newer versions, they actually allocate more processing power and more RAM to them."
"Its customer support should be improved."
"In the next release, I'd like to see more features not in the hardware but in the platform where I can manage all the servers and the hardware of the servers."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"It has generally been very competitive. It is not the best, but it is very competitive."
"I don't see any issues with respect to licensing. It's power-efficient, so it's beneficial to the customers price-wise. There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fee."
"It's a one-time licensing fee for the device and we pay a quota per year for the support."
"You can't have computed performance without using more power. That said, when I consider the power consumption and performance of the MX740c, depending on how much memory you install on each blade, you get the best bang for your buck."
"The pricing is great; very competitive. That's the reason we bought hundreds of them."
"The licensing is expensive and inflexible."
"The product is cheaper than HP servers, but the price could always be better."
"I wouldn't say the solution's pricing is the best, but it's very competitive."
