Overall Satisfaction with Dell PowerEdge R

Dell PowerEdge R series are very handy and easy to deploy rack-based servers. I am using Dell PowerEdge R710, R720 & R730 for more than 5 years. We use these rack servers as Hypervisor i.e., VMware ESXi as well as a backup server. Most of the virtual infrastructure is running on this series. You can use these rack servers as standalone ones, or like a hypervisor, etc.
  • Reliable memory feature is unique.
  • Easy in RAID configuration where we need OS and storage partitions.
  • PowerEdge iDRAC are way more easier to administer.
  • iDRAC interface can have some more shortcuts.
  • Getting DSAT report remotely becomes challenging sometimes.
  • Virtualization compatibility.
  • Proactive alerts.
  • Easier to manage by IT resources.
  • Perfect for standalone cases.
Both have different prospects, I have been working with Dell mostly, hence always prefer Dell.
