More Huawei KunLun Mission Critical Server Pros →

"The initial setup is easy.""They have taken a lot of technology from IBM, and IBM always delivered very powerful hardware to the IT industry compared to Dell EMC or anyone else.""I would say the stability of the system itself would be the biggest advantage.""I like everything about this solution. It is a very good server, with excellent availability. The size of the power is adequate and the low heating is beneficial.""It's very power-efficient and allows you to access the rack server directly without accessing the operating system on that server.""Its performance and the local support of Lenovo in my city are the most valuable features. Its performance is the best, and its user interface is also very easy.""The hardware performance is very valuable.""The most valuable aspect of Lenovo ThinkSystem Rack Servers is the brand name and the service relationship we have with Lenovo."

Cons
"Lenovo ThinkSystem Rack Servers does a very good job. However, what could be improved can be their Configurator because it's very bulky and it sometimes gives logical errors.""I have a few notification alerts about PCI cards but it's rare.""Lenovo ThinkSystem Rack Servers could improve the availability of their solution. The supply chain is severely broken, we've had to wait many months for component parts to a system time after time. The availability of discs and raid controllers has been difficult lately.""Its price could be better. Its price is sometimes an issue for our clients. XClarity Controller is a very good feature, and Lenovo should include the XClarity Controller license without any additional cost. It should be integrated within the product.""It is quite an expensive product. Its price can be improved.""I would like the solution to be improved by having more advanced utilities.""It should have tools for integration with the cloud. We should be able to transmit data from our on-premises server to the servers in the cloud.""The RAID Management and the RAID Configuration tools need to be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "Your budget determines the scalability."
  • "The licensing cost is the same as HP. It doesn't have any additional cost. However, the price, for example, for the memory option, does not match other vendors such as HP or Dell. They should work on the pricing of Lenovo. It is a great competitor, and it should compete with the price."
  • "It is too expensive. Because we are a university and we have to look for our money, many times we buy some refurbished machines or equipment at reasonable prices from IBM or Lenovo. We are a little bit limited in terms of money, and we buy as much as we can. If they were cheaper, we would buy more."
  • "It costs around $8,000. There is an additional cost for the support for a year."
  • "Its pricing is very competitive."
  • "The price of the solution is very expensive when compared to other solution like HP or Dell."
  • "The price of Lenovo ThinkSystem Rack Servers is competitive."
  • "I don't know the exact amount of money, but when I compared it to Dell or HPE, Lenovo was the best when it comes to price and equipment."
