Dell Server vs HP/Compaw Server
Posted on 2006-04-21
With the numbers of projects we are researching and working on, one of the big questions is what server model we want to continue with. If we are going to make a huge investment in VMware, SAN’s, Clustering, etc. we want to have a solid server foundation. We have gone with Dell from a price perspective and they have held up well for the most part.
However, going forward I want to re-visit the HP market and find out if there are any reasons for us to switch over. Are there any specific reasons to switch over…and I am more interested in looking at this from the actual product line….I know if we went HP we can get them faster (dell takes forever to ship) Also, I am sure customer service and all that stuff is good or better than Dells but at the end of the day the main thing I want to focus on is the hardware, the reliability, scalability, etc.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
