I have to choose between IBM X3650 M4 and HP DL380pG8 servers. Both are 6-cores Xeon e5-2620 with 64 Mb of RAM and the same price. What factors should I consider to make a choice between them? They seems to be the same in performance. What to take?
Ease of management, cost, user mindshare and supportability.
Nobody really focuses on IBM server hardware these days, as they've exited the Intel server market. However, there's lots of HP information and knowledge out there.
On paper, the servers will perform the same because they use the same chipset and have similar specs.
