Product Reviews
IBM BladeCenter S SAS RAID Controller Module - storage ontroller (RAID) - is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It offers central management of all blade servers and performance. Valuable Features:Central management of all blade servers and performance: It helps us to access blade servers remotely even at boot time, as well, when we can access the BIOS setup remotely. Other than that, we can restart and shut down blade servers from a single console.Room for Improvement:The blade center and blade server’s hardware firmware upgrade should be easy.The hardware firmware upgrade option of blade servers and chassis should include the blade center admin console itself.Use of Solution:I have used it for nine years.Stability Issues:Because this is an old IBM blade chassis model and servers, we faced a couple of issues during VMware implementation.Scalability Issues:I have not encountered any scalability issues.Technical Support:Technical support is 10/10.Initial Setup:Initial hardware setup is bit difficult regarding interconnectivity and the firmware upgrade on the blade chassis and servers. I recommend that it should be done by the IBM tech team.Cost and Licensing Advice:For servers, proper sizing should be done in terms of processing, memory, storage, etc., along with the IBM team. Sometimes the cost of product increases if it is oversized.Other Solutions Considered:Before choosing this product, we also evaluated options from HP and DELL.Other Advice:Blade servers are better than traditional servers, but cost-wise, a blade center solution is more expensive than traditional servers, so if blade servers are the best fit for your environment, then you should go for it.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
