Hello,

I'd like some professional opinions regarding 2 tech specs, which one would you choose and why.

Thanks.

As far as performance goes they're all the same, the CPUs are the same, the RAM is the same, the networking is presumably the same (although I can't see any SAN switches on the Cisco list, maybe I missed them).

All you can use to decide really is reliability (which isn't disclosed by the manufacturers) and the quality of technical support and maintenance and of course price. Management software plays a part but that is often moot nowadays if you're running something like VMware becuse management agents get in the way so people use the vanilla version without those agents.

You can also throw IBM and HP into the mix since those two are at the top of Gartner's magic quadrant - http://www.gartner.com/technology/reprints.do?id=1-19KZ0QR&ct=120306&st=sb
