What do you like most about Dell PowerEdge VRTX?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
Dell PowerEdge VRTX supports a lot of memory which has allowed us to keep our system size smaller.
The security is very good on the solution.
From a hardware perspective, it's interesting. The selling point of VRTX is that everything is built-in. For a small company that doesn't have a server room or the capabilities of hosting several servers, VRTX has four blades. The equivalent in regular server models would be four servers, which is a minimum of 4U, but it could easily be 8U, and then it would have storage. The storage is included inside the enclosure, and it would require a storage unit. It would also require connectivity, which would be ethernet or another protocol switch.
From a software perspective, it's a little bit more integrated. You have an integrated way of managing the whole thing, including storage and networking. It has an internal network that can also be useful. I know for a fact that Dell is almost fazing out the product, and it is not that available anymore because it will just cannibalize their sales. They want to sell the more expensive stuff.
It is pretty easy to install.
We were satisfied after we upgraded to a professional next-day on-site support.
We started off with a base because we started our infrastructure with Dell and we always propose or prefer Dell which is easier to manage the warranty than with different vendors.
It's a good solution when you don't need a lot of IT.
It is simple to use and it's user-friendly.
The most valuable feature is the combined management in one box.
