This review is from: Mellanox 10Gigabit Ethernet Card
Cons: Doesn't work reliably in Linux with 2.2 driver. Under small amount of load, throws CQE kernel errors and freezes the driver. Completely dropped our SAN connections twice in a cloud environment. We will never buy Mellanox again, ever. Back to Intel.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great system which we are using (a few) for a basic commercial virtualization (cloud IaaS). Added two 8-core Intel CPUs and SSDs and a couple hard drives for a great basis for expanding our platform. As with all SUPERMICRO systems this has a fast web-based and highly configurable IPMI. This server comes with a nice RAID controller.
Cons: Initialization is still a little slow but we are used to it. The RAID controller seemed to have problems setting up a RAID-1 with SSDs when in UEFI, but we could do it through normal BIOS and switch back.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cisco Small Business 100 Series SG100-16-NA Unmanaged 16-Port Gigabit Switch
Pros: Good, simple switch for a small office or data center installation. The rack mount brackets can be turned 90deg for a great, solid wall mount, which worked great for us.
Cons: Haven't had an issue.
Other Thoughts: Might use a couple of these for our development server room now that I need to extend my switches a bit, but I will probably look at something bigger.READ FULL REVIEW
