Am looking at upgrading a couple of servers. I have previously worked with Dell and IBM branded servers and have been especially happy the IBM reliability. However i have been having a look at the asus branded servers. When i compare apples to apples (2 identical builds by different vendors) i find the asus ones are consistently cheaper. sometimes by order of over $1000 (AUS). My question is has anyone worked with ASUS servers before and what are their opinions on these machines. Are they as good as their other line of products, do the match up to the big boys like IBM and Dell etc etc.
the models im looking at are the ASUS TS500-E4 tower server.
any advice is greatly appreciated
