During the installation, it would be good to have some information about how is it going.""System security can be improved. They can add more power and security for ESXi version 7.""There are certain aspects, features, and functionality on the motherboard that need improvement.""I would like to see a virtual view of the solution after creating and configuring it.""It would be nice if the rack servers had an HCI solution as an option.""The solution could improve by making the warranty policy better, which is a little bit complex because our local service partner Smart Technologies has long delays. Whenever we open any case for any customer, it takes more than five days. If we could handle it by ourselves, we could have the issue solved in one day. They should work on a way to fix these delays."
