Dell Disk Space | No More Fears Of Losing Your Data

May 5, 2007

24 Votes

Status: Implemented

In addition to storage space in your Dell, perhaps Dell should host an extended online storage system to let customers keep their important documents. This could eliminate customer's fear of losing their data. Online space will match your Dell hard drive space  Full back-up or use it as additional storage  Pay for additional space Status Update Please see dennis_s' comment

Preconfigured mirroring (RAID1) on every PC with 2 disks

Apr 13, 2007

13 Votes

Status: Partially Implemented

Every Desktop and Notebook which has at least 2 disk slots should be optionally availible with preconfigured RAID1 managed by the motherboard RAID controller The obvious objective is to almost transparently survive disk crashes for casual users. Reinstalling after a crash si a several day long nightmare, even if you have backed up your data , which is itself a nightmare, considering these data are spread everyware. So most casual users do nothing and live with this sword of Damocles hanging above. SW RAID managed by Windows is not an attractive option; not available with basic XP, difficult to setup. HW based RAID preconfigured at BIOS level is transparent and relatively easy to live with. Wasting 50% of disk space is not a problem with the tiny GB price we see today. Preconfigured RAID 1 exists in Dell line but is limited to very few high end workstations and servers. Status Update Please see mano_g's comment

AMD cpu's in servers and blade servers

Mar 3, 2007

20 Votes

Status: Implemented

Dell is loosing sales on servers because you are not offering AMD cpu's for servers. In competition with e.g. HP and IBM for rack mounted servers Dell has no matching offer. As Enterprises are entering into Blade systems and Virtual servers the AMD equiped servers are not available from Dell and you are missing out an opertunity to develop og even stay in that market. Status Update Now offered on the PowerEdge M605
