Other Thoughts: i have esxi 5 running off a 4GB thumb drive, 4 600GB SAS to host VMDKs, 24GB ram, 10+ VMs running without a hiccup.

Pros: This is my second ML350 G6 for a client of mine, I purchased the same machine (slightly different specs) because this server would be used for RDS (Terminal Services) and currently 25 concurrent sessions. This is an extremely small price to pay when considering that we can simply purchase thin clients and if upgrades are needed, this server has an additional CPU socket for more CPU Cores but also has many DIMMs, and although 192gb is far beyond our wildest dreams, we can purchase less expensive, lower density (2 or 4GB chips) and load it up to get to 48GB. This version has a single PSU but there is a slot for a second PSU to give you redundancy. I hook the PSU's up separate Power circuits and each has its own Battery Backup (x2 servers) The performance is great the way it is, plenty of storage space for additional hard drives. You can literally upgrade each and every aspect of this server as you deem necessary. To top it all off, HP's wonderful Warranty, quick response time!
Cons: not to much that i can think of for negatives about this server, especially for what your getting at this price. One thing thats not so much a con, but a suggestion, is that i wish this server had a pair of the dual gigabit adapters for higher availability/load balancing in TIC Teaming or even to use the server as a proxy/firewall.
Other Thoughts: Since your likely spending a lot of cash on the Server software (I personally bought 2008R2 + 30 additional server CALS and 25 RDS Cals, puts me around 5k so its nice to have a machine this powerful and more importantly, this scalable so that were not needing to replace the system as frequently.
