    Large storage capacity, feature-rich, reliable, and the support is good
    Pros and Cons
    • "The most valuable feature is that it can support up to 32 drives of internal storage."
    • "I would like to have support for performing a detailed analysis of the server from a mobile device."

    What is our primary use case?

    We are a system integrator and the Dell EMC PowerEdge XE Server is one of the products that we implement for our clients. Our customers use it as a server in their network.

    What is most valuable?

    The most valuable feature is that it can support up to 32 drives of internal storage. This is a very large capacity for a single server and a key advantage for this product. Support is very good from Dell. The compatibility of the controller is one of the main advantages. It is a secure platform and has a number of unique features. These servers can implement a virtualization platform, so they don't need to utilize their internal storage. Integrating with other vendors is easy. Using the direct management interface, you can integrate with many other platforms.

    What needs improvement?

    I would like to have support for performing a detailed analysis of the server from a mobile device.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    We have been implementing Dell EMC PowerEdge XE Servers for more than three years.

    Technical support from Dell is very good.

    Several years ago when I was with another company, I worked with various HPE solutions including the ProLiant DL Servers and BladeSystem. With respect to BladeSystem, HPE is dominating in Sri Lanka.

    The initial setup is straightforward because all of the tools are available with the servers. We have deployed the enterprise version and it can also be done remotely, where we don't need to attend the site. We can deploy in less than an hour, including everything.

    We are system implementors and our in-house team handles deployment and maintenance. We have 12 engineers who are certified on this product.

    If you want an SLA for parts and equipment then you need to purchase a support agreement.

    What other advice do I have?

    In summary, this is a good product and I recommend it. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
