Nephelim... have you *ever* managed sun servers versus the competition like IBM eseries, HP DL3xx, or Dell servers?

Sun's ILOMs (Integrated Lights Out Management) beats anything on the market hands down. Is the server dead? So what, ssh into the ILOM, restart the server and then connect to the Serial console... done.

Sun servers are more efficient, better designed, and easier to manage than equivalent Dell servers. How do I know? Because we manage thousands of them and have replaced all IBM servers in production with Sun x4xx series. Nothing compares to Sun servers for remote management.

If anyone disagrees, please explain.
