Rated 5 out of 5 by reviewer2260503 from Is user-friendly, has valuable integration with ESXi, and has great performance What is our primary use case? We use Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers for our storage. How has it helped my organization? Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers are always ahead of the curve when it comes to speed and performance, and therefore, they are more than adequately positioned to deal with the demands of changing infrastructure and changing demands from the business. The cyber-resilient architecture of Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers allows us to customize the information for individual users rather than being limited to a single generic account. Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers are continually evolving to achieve optimal energy efficiency and performance, utilizing the latest processors from both AMD and Intel. Dell's OpenManage Console for lifecycle management is user-friendly. We have utilized a centralized console for both overall management and individualized control. The process, from initial setup to complete patching of firmware and drivers, is remarkably straightforward. Furthermore, its integration with the cloud eliminates the need for manual driver downloads or ISO installations. Since it operates entirely through the cloud, the process is exceptionally uncomplicated. OpenManage Console helps our IT staff to be more productive. The OpenManage Console reduces the time required for us to deploy new data centers by 25 percent because we can perform all tasks from the central console on a subscription basis. The native OS security features have helped protect our environment from attacks. The Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers exhibit high uptime. Once they are up and running, they remain operational, making them easy to maintain and manage in terms of driver patching. We observed these advantages immediately. The impact of Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers on our IT infrastructure and its ability to handle the demands of a remote or distributed workforce is good. This is because we can manage all of them from a central source. The presence of iDRAC means that we don't have to visit sites unnecessarily; everything can be managed efficiently. Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers help in reducing unplanned production downtime by 100 TB. The maintenance we perform is very efficient. We plan for it, and the average failure rate is quite low. Therefore, we don't experience too many failures. What is most valuable? Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers are user-friendly. The setup is easy and the overall experience with Dell from sales to support is absolutely wonderful. The most valuable feature is the integration with ESXi, where they provide their custom ISOs, ensuring that all the drivers are installed. What needs improvement? I would appreciate the capability to carry out live updates without the need to take the system offline. For how long have I used the solution? I have been using Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers for 20 years. What do I think about the stability of the solution? Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers have been stable, which is why I have been using them for 20 years. What do I think about the scalability of the solution? The Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers are scalable across the entire product range, ranging from one U to multiple U configurations and from single sockets to multiple sockets to cater to various markets. How are customer service and support? The technical support is excellent, and they consistently possess extensive knowledge about the products. How would you rate customer service and support? Positive Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch? We previously utilized Cisco Servers but transitioned to Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers due to their cost-effectiveness and reliability. These systems have slight differences; while one serves as Unified Communications, the other is stand-alone and is more manageable. How was the initial setup? The initial setup is straightforward. I created a document explaining how to perform the task, and it was quite straightforward for individuals who are not familiar with PowerEdge systems. There weren't any complexities in the setup process; it's essentially a repetitive procedure. Once we've configured one PowerEdge server, the process is the same for all of them, as the product line doesn't substantially differ from a setup standpoint when utilizing PowerEdge servers. Starting from the moment when ESXi is installed, the deployment takes approximately half a day to finish. What about the implementation team? I have implemented the solution in-house and have also utilized Insight UK as our integrator at my previous job. What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing? I am satisfied with the pricing of the Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers and would rate the cost as seven out of ten, with ten being the best. Which other solutions did I evaluate? We chose Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers and Microsoft due to their lower cost and user-friendly nature. What other advice do I have? I would rate Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers an eight out of ten. The integration of the app workloads with PowerEdge Rack Servers depends on the key factor of the operating system. Using a public cloud instead of Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers can potentially be more costly. The latency of any on-premises device will always be greater than that of the cloud. I highly recommend Dell PowerEdge Rack Servers as long as they meet the organization's requirements for their use case. Users should first figure out their use case and ensure that their goals align with the available options. Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Rated 5 out of 5 by reviewer2267052 from Great console, helps meet evolving needs, and offers good firmware updates What is our primary use case? We primarily use the solution as servers for a range of tasks, including printer servers, internet servers, and a range of application servers. We have two and they are hosts. We run about 12 VMs on them that run different things on our site. We have a main site and two satellite sites that run. They run in a failover cluster using Hyper-V in an active-active configuration. If one goes down, the other will take over. What is most valuable? We chose to preinstall Microsoft Windows Server with the Dell PowerEdge servers based on the cost. The OEM licensing is cheaper than buying it any other way. It is quite flexible when you use it. The support is good. I like how you can type in the asset tag and download all the drives. Finding information about the server is simple. It helps with the evolving needs of workloads. They've also been very quick with good value for the speed of the processor. They offer very good high-performance workloads. The assigned firmware updates are very good. If you have an OS that doesn't work well or is suffering, we are able to fix the server much faster. It has very good user management. The energy consumption is good, although we haven't compared it to anything else. The OpenManage console is great. You can configure and gain visibility. When you are doing firmware upgrades, you can configure items. The user interface is very well designed. It's helped improve our productivity. It allows for pretty quick fault finding and when it takes less time to find the fault, you waste less of the technician's time. Our OS is 2012 and we will be leveraging the latest cybersecurity systems when we update our OS. The solution has improved our IT infrastructure. The removal of any single points of failure, allowed us to really reduce any hardware-related downtime. We realized improvements within three to six months. We don't get that kind of hardware downtime anymore using the active-active two-carriage servers. It's been a major improvement in downtime. The PowerEdge service has positively impacted our IT infrastructure and its ability to handle the demands of the remote distributed workforce. We can easily deploy new VMs and have open storage. It's far better than the old approach. It allows you to be flexible and to be faster at fixing items and changing to different environments. We use ERP, which is critical to our business. It's an SQL Server-based ERP system. The integration is very good. It helps the apps work very well. It is important to have the integration of the apps and workloads for our business demands. We use a variety of different approaches. We do have to make sure that we have our network configured correctly with VLANs. We have good user management. We have EDR software installed and run computers. We also have firewalls that proactively act as a strong Umbrella. PowerEdge has helped to reduce unplanned production downtime. For example, being able to upgrade the firmware through the IDAC when there's a problem with the server is very helpful. The redundancy built into the service is good, and the fact that there's no single point of failure between the servers and the SAN is also very good. What needs improvement? OEM licensing does not allow you to transfer from one server to another. You need to replace hardware and software together. It would be nice if they could make the solution cheaper and faster. At the moment, our SAN is very complicated to understand. I'd like there to be more simplicity around it. More integration between the SAN and the OS would be useful. For how long have I used the solution? I've been using Dell for 30 years. What do I think about the stability of the solution? The solution is highly stable. What do I think about the scalability of the solution? The solution is scalable. How are customer service and support? We had a set of faults when we went live with our last set of servers in the middle of the night, Dell assigned an Australian manager when our site stopped and Dell managed to get three new disks delivered at 6 AM on our side and managed to get them all working. They helped us turn a disaster around. When people came in the next morning, we had everything figured out. The majority of support interactions are very good. How would you rate customer service and support? Positive Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch? I've used other servers, including HP and IBM. I tend to stick with Dell as I know it well. HP needs to be built yourself. Dell is pre-built and offers good value for money. The support is very good as well. How was the initial setup? We are using the version we bought seven years ago and we'll be replacing it in the next month. I was involved in the initial deployment. It was more complicated as we went from actual service to VMs so there was a bit of complexity there. We ran the kit side by side and then migrated each server one at a time over the course of a month. What about the implementation team? We hired Dell consultants to assist with the implementation work. What was our ROI? I have no specific ROI statistics to compare. What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing? I have been quite impressed with the price. Which other solutions did I evaluate? We did consider public cloud servers before choosing Dell. The cost was much more going that route. It would have been multiple times mroe than what we've spent on Dell servers. We also prefer the control of having servers on-site. We have more options that way. We did compare latency and found that latency would be better using on-site servers. What other advice do I have? We use a lot of Microsoft. It's 95% of what we use. That's who our ERP provider uses and where a lot of our apps are. I have not used much of the cyber security features of the servers. I have not done any integrations with third parties however that is a plan for the future. I'd recommend the solution to others. I'd advise new users to get quotes from other providers as well, such as HP and IBM. However, Dell systems are built and support is good. Overall, I would rate the solution eight out of ten.
