In terms of what could be improved, we always find this kind of a problem when comparing the cost that's provided by Dell to that of HP. Dell's main competitor is HP servers. I don't know about the IBM's, but most of our requests are coming from Dell compared to HP. In terms of the cost, it is a little bit high, meaning, there is some difference in the cost compared to the equivalent product with HP servers.

It should have more simplified management. It is a common problem where vendors think that they have simplified a solution, but the users don't look at it in the same way. A vendor thinks that there are only ten steps for a task, but we consider them as many steps. It should also have more support for NVMe. For high performance and speed, there should also be more network cards for the fiber channel and ethernet.

I think that Dell has full documentation on their products, but it needs to be improved for this one.
