Default Which server brand?

I'm looking to buy a few new servers and can't decide which brand/make to go with. I've had a great experience with Dell but IBM also looks like a good option. I don't think I want to go with HP.

The server won't be doing so much work but I still want great performance. Budget isn't that much of an issue.

Any suggestions please?

Regards,
ford

My company is using IBM's server from its beginning and I have found no problem at all.

You go with your company standards or application provider recommendations. Dell, IBM are good hardware servers, good Technical support, competent price and prompt replacement (depending on your support contract). and these are key factors to decide for new purchase.

Personally I like Dell over any other brand. Only reason is after working long with Dell, i know what kind of problem, i can face and what are the work around

SuperMicro is always good to look at also, especially if on a small budget.

Well, I believe that web hosting providers who know the value of customers data and its availability will buy the hardware only from Dell. Because, Dell is a company who offers trusted and genuine hardware from years and never been fallen down. If you are still not sure about it, you can check out the differences between Dell and HP by searching for Dell servers Vs. HP servers . I am sure, you will find Dell the best for your requirements.

I totally agree with supermicro

70% of our servers are Supermicro and the rest are Dell and some HP's

Performance with Supermicro servers is great, so far we we had only one board replacement a while ago, beside that they are running 24/7 and clients are happy.

Supermicro is my favorite, but if you're on a budget Dell and HP will get into quite the bidding war if your order is large enough.

I actually like supermicro and mainly of our material is that. We've been attainment in several off-lease dell gears which is less-bad than I supposed it would be. The dependability on the dell is good so far. The ease of use and suppleness isn't as good as supermicro but once you get it operational itís ok, and off rent is dirt inexpensive.
