Comparing VMS And NVR - Which Solution To Use?

With increased NVRs offering featured packed by several OEMs, it is a challenge to decide when to use a NVR or Go for VMS + Servers.

The server Requirements (specification) of VMS even for 16 Ch @ 1080p is quite heavy, but most NVR claim to handle 16ch @ 1080p @ 100Mbps.

I would like to know from the community, what is your experience and when / where do you design with NVR or with VMS + Server.
