Hi All -

Looking for some reviews on the UCS B230 M2. Would appreciate you letting me know if you are a partner or employee of Cisco and/or what you use the UCS environment for.  We are basically looking to replace a 20 host rack server (R710's) VM environment (4.1) with either B200 M2's or B230 M2's.  If you are using a different product, let me know why you choose that product over Cisco.  Thanks to you all!  I will split up points among all who give me reviews in the next couple days.

The cisco stuff is good kit. You would choose the B230 or B200 based in requirements. My experience has been that the B230 with fewer cores per
Processor is often a better choice in a VMware envirnonment as the processor click speeds are higher.

Having said that, the value in UCS is in service profiles and FCoE
