Cisco MCS or HP Hardware for Unity/CCM

I am looking at purchasing several new Unity servers, and am trying to understand what benefit there is in purchasing the Cisco version.

For what reason would I purchase a more expensive Cisco MCS rather than the identical HP?

Thanks.

Re: Cisco MCS or HP Hardware for Unity/CCM

Good question,

Looking from a h/w maintenance perspective, you will have a single telephone number to reach.

This doesnt limit you from buying a approved HP or IBM server. You definitely can, but if you have a failed hard drive or server, you have to call HP instead of IBM. Ofcourse maintenance is not free, there is a per year tag for the same.

You can find the specs of MCS servers here and order an identical one if you want to go that route.
