I would not have thought to use a specific vendor for my deployment.  I might have even thought Dell to be the best choice when it come time ot roll out servers and such.  Now i know more about the devices behind those servers and how the equipment of a dedicated vendor could really improve the quality of service i offer.  I will look forward to putting some suggestions from this blog to good use.
