Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y So, Windows is no longer cutting the mustard and you need a more scalable, reliable and higher performing environment. You may be running Oracle Financials, PeopleSoft or any of a number of ERP applications. Or you may be looking to deploy a new Web portal with something like IBM WebSphere with a DB2 backend or WebLogic and Oracle.

I don't think so - the hardware certification is one thing, but having the hardware and software controlled by the same vendor means there's no ambiguity about where the buck stops for performance, functionality, or stability. That's not to say that there won't be open warfare behind the vendor's closed doors, but there is at least a CEO where the buck stops.
