Let's say you want to pick a server vendor and you don't necessarily  
want to buy from one country and ship it to 50 different locations but  
instead buy them locally in each country, and also have local parties  
provide support.

If you were to compare brands such as Dell, IBM, HP, Supermicro (or  
any other vendor?) which one you would recommend for this kind of  

The server specs are fairly standard. Nothing extraordinary.. and  
expected support isn't also 7/24/365 but a decent next day -5 hours M- 
F type of deal..

thanks for responses..
