More Fujitsu Primergy BX400 Series Pros →

"For me, this is the best frame server technology available in the market. We can compare it to Cisco UCS. It is robust and stable, and it is also easy to deploy and scale. Their support is the best.""The most valuable features are the converged network adapters.""Its versatility, performance, and size are most valuable. It is very decent for its size. It has very good performance and very good specifications.""Technical support is excellent. They are very helpful.""It is a simple software to integrate with others.""The stability of the solution is very reliable.""We like that the solution can be arranged for an all-in-one single pane of glass, something our customers find important.""The solution is built very well. It's very robust and durable."

Cons
"It can have more automation. In addition, Fujitsu should have a broader portfolio, not specifically in terms of the service solutions, but more in terms of the big picture. A broader portfolio would be nice for providing different solutions for the customers."

"It would be nice if the updates were not accompanied by downtime.""They must improve the OneView tools.""In the past, I have had issues with configurations.""I would definitely like to see them fix the firmware updates on all the blades. No matter what operating system it is running on, make sure I can do the firmware as well as the software for those firmware components at the same time. I don't want to have to rely on an external product. Let's bring that product inside the menu so that I have a better experience with updates.""The performance could be better. The converged network cards initially didn't work. However, later on in the newer version, they came up with 50 GB network cards to replace the 20 GB ones, and it's perfectly fine now. At times, it could also be more stable.""Changes to the solution are quite complex.""Its management needs some work. It is not the best in terms of management. It has decent management. Its user interface can also be better.""ICMs could be better in this model. When you look at its competitors, the most critical point is the throughput. HPE is the best with the ICM module, which is an interconnect module that connects the servers of the frames to the LAN and SAN. HPE Synergy should also support the latest processors provided by Intel."

  • "We are satisfied with its price."
  • "We have already paid once. It is just the price for the permit and its use. It seems you don't have to keep paying for it, but I am not sure."
  • "We don't have to pay for Synergy because it's part of our plan."
  • "The hardware licensing cost is reasonable."
