Yes - IBM Standalone and Blade Servers tied to SAN storage units via FibreConnect, running VMWare. The maintenance and ultimately the costs combined with the complexity/logistics of upgrading the various components broke the camel's back. When reviewing a straight up replacement vs a hyperconverged solution, the advantage was the latter, from a cost and operational standpoint. Four years down the road, the entire organization is pleased with the decision.
