If you're not too brand-aware then I would highly recommend
SuperMicro. We also switched over to SuperMicro a few years ago after
having just too many problems with Dell, to keep clients happy. I've
never looked back since. They're hardware is top quality and and to
confusing in terms of the terminology they use. It's so easy that even
our junior techs could build them :) And their chassis are not flimsy,
or "over-crowded" as many other brands sometimes are.
