Ok I have a company of 75+ computers, which isa appliance would you recommend going with? I saw I think 3 brands making them; HP, Celestix, and Network Engines.
I plan on purchasing one, are there any downfalls of these server appliances and if so what?
I appreciate everyones feedback so far I just want to find all the information possible from users rather then seraching there particular companies site, its not like they will say there appliances have down falls.
I went with the HP solution over the Network Engines(which I saw their first unit - Celeron based proc) last year. Didn't like the fact that the hardware configuration was restricted. I built my HP's with RAID 1 and SCSI drives and Pentium processors vs. the celeron in the Network Engines.
I only spent approx $1500 more on the HP solution. We are a HP shop so it was also fitting.
