Rated 3 out of 5 by from We've virtualized and consolidated our servers, reducing our carbon footprint, although boot-up time should be reduced. Valuable Features:* iLO gives hardware information, preempting imminent failures.* Redundancy features provide hot-swap ability for drives and power supplies and automatic rebuilding of RAIDs.Improvements to My Organization:We have been able to virtualize many physical servers into a handful of virtual servers. This has allowed us to consolidate and reduce our carbon footprint in the data center.Room for Improvement:Boot-up time should be reduced. Restarting a server at any time is a stress-filled occasion, and waiting around for the server to come back on is agonizing. 10GB and 40GB ethernet connections are essential for virtualization workloads and consolidation, however even the latest G9 servers do not support this on the base server.Use of Solution:Over a period of 15 years, I have used different versions of the above models.Stability Issues:Stability can be adversely affected if non-HP certified RAM is used, e.g. Kingston value RAM has failed a few times, bringing an entire server down.Technical Support:Excellent, the support is one area where I can have no complaints. Whenever a hardware failure has been detected, HP have responded in good time and the part was delivered within the agreed SLA. Having said that, the original parts availability outside the established channels also makes it easy (cheaper) to maintain, especially in non-critical environments i.e. dev and test.Previous Solutions:I've used HP servers predominantly so do not have much else to compare them with.Initial Setup:It's simple. Use the included SmartStart media, and it seamlessly integrates with the OS of choice.Implementation Team:In-house. I have found the rack mounting kits more of a challenge then the installation of the OS/hypervisor, that is how simple implementation is. Also, keep an eye on which version of the SmartStart media you use i.e. x86 vs. x64 as that limits what kind of OS media can be utilized.ROI:ROI is difficult to say because it depends on the type of implementation e.g. is it a new deployment or consolidating an existing an existing one or simply replacing like for like. What I would say, is that the platforms are very stable and once setup, will most likely outlast any hardware replacement cycle is in place.Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing:Ensure that you get the hardware support with 24x7 four hour response if this is a high availability production environment, and purchase appropriate iLO licenses if needed.Other Advice:The only thing I don't like about them is that if/when you have to restart it, it takes a long time to come back on. As the sea of sensors have increased in recent generations, the time has become longer.Define your storage needs in advance and then plan the disks accordingly. Suggest that if flash storage is financially feasible, then invest in that as the performance benefits are worth it.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The most valuable features are flexibility and scalability. It just works. Valuable Features:Flexibility, scalability, and being a standard. I've used during my career. It's useful to know exactly where to go for information and where to go for support. It just works.Improvements to My Organization:Just that support is really easy to get a hold of and when things are not functioning, they are able to get the right parts within the right SLAs and it just happens.Room for Improvement:I would like to see an on-demand model. I think they are already going there. I would like to see something in which you can move your workloads to a cloud kind of offering. That would be something that would be ideal in the future.Stability Issues:The stability is really good.Scalability Issues:The level of scalability depending on the product you choose. With the DL specifically, you can have as many hosts as you want or as much storage as you want. It is very modular. You can just keep bolting things on, essentially like LEGO.Technical Support:I have used technical support, but not recently. In the past, they were really good when I used them.Previous Solutions:I've only been with the organization a short time. The decision to go with this product was made before I started. The vendor, who did our infrastructure as a service offering, is an HPE partner. So we didn't really choose the solution, but rather, it came to us. And I wouldn't have chosen anything else anyway.When selecting a vendor, I look for flexibility and support. Everyone has a good sales pitch. However, when it comes to actually executing on it and supporting it long-term, those are the really important parts that not a lot of people consider up front.Initial Setup:I was not involved in the setup at this organization.Other Advice:Just make sure you look at the total cost of ownership and the long-term use case of what you're actually doing, versus the problem that you're trying to solve right now.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It has easy manageability, and with iLO we are able to do everything remotely. Valuable Features:It has easy manageability, and with iLO we are able to do everything remotely.Improvements to My Organization:It's just a computer server, so we just use them for whatever things we can't virtualize so it's nothing very special in that regard as far as what sets HPEs apart from somebody else's there.Room for Improvement:We're looking forward to OneView management, stuff like that to keep it all in check. But there's not really anything specific. It will provide a single pane of glass for management instead of going out to 50 different servers and configuring things so you get, set up a template, or do the different things through OneView. Just kick it off and replicate and automate what you're doing.Stability Issues:I haven't had any issues with that at all.Scalability Issues:I haven't had any issues with that at all.Previous Solutions:I've used other platforms in the past, but nothing specific. We wanted to have a single pane of glass for management and have consistency as much as we can so we stick with one vendor overall between blades, between rack mounts, between everything.Other Advice:Proliant, they're fine. I mean it's compute, it's pretty hard to mess it up these days.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It has the scalability of the processors, high core counts, and additional memory capacity. Valuable Features:It has the scalability of the processors, high core counts, and additional memory capacity.Improvements to My Organization:Obviously, more performance from having the higher core counts and the additional memory.Room for Improvement:I would like to see additional work on making the intelligent provisioning work with VMware.Stability Issues:The stability has been very good. It is very reliable.Scalability Issues:Scalability has been good as well. There's actually a scale from really low core counts up to the higher-end Intel processors.Technical Support:I have used tech support for warranty claims. They are good and respond quickly.Previous Solutions:We knew we needed to invest in a new solution because our customers asked for this series of servers. HPE is our primary go-to solution for servers, unless somebody asks for some other brand in particular. When looking for a vendor, the main differentiation between most of them is good back-end support. We've had good luck with HPE support.Initial Setup:The setup was straightforward.Other Advice:Go for it and call HPE support if you get stuck.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gives us the ability to manage centrally. Valuable Features:The blades are very compact. They are easy to query. If you need information from them, you have one central location where you can go with OneView to understand where everything is located if you have any problems with them. In that respect, it is better than just standalone servers that you find in the field.Improvements to My Organization:It gives us the ability to manage centrally. If you have a problem with any of the servers, it will send alerts and you can easily find out where they are located. You can then pull the server if you have to and change the hardware.The servers are all identical, so if we do have issues, we can just pull one from our reserved stash and just replace it. The benefit is that they are all identical, so they are pretty reliable.Room for Improvement:What is missing for me is more of the administration site. If you have a cluster of four servers, there's no way to identify if they are all a member of the same cluster.If there were a way to tag them, then you could specify where they are located within the data center. It would make it easier, because then we could spread them out. We would not have to keep them in the same cabinet in case of a power failure.I would like to see more ease-of-use, be able to identify everything, and group them together so that we know where they are located.Stability Issues:So far it has been very stable and reliable. We rarely have issues. When we do have issues, it is usually firmware related. Hardware-wise, they are pretty solid.Scalability Issues:With blades, you can just add more cabinets and you are good to go.Technical Support:Occasionally, we have to use technical support when there are issues. The support is really good. They always find a solution. Sometimes it takes a little longer than other times, but they always find a solution.Previous Solutions:We knew we needed a solution because we didn't have anything prior to this solution. I had to come up with a solution and say, "These four servers are in the same cluster. We need to write codes that indicate that these servers are in this frame or in this enclosure." That way, we could map out our status.When selecting a vendor, I look at price, if they are technologically inclined, i.e., that they know what they're doing. We look for a personal relationship, just to make sure that they are friendly and that they know their stuff.Initial Setup:I was not present for the initial setup. I was present for the setup of the Synergy frames. It was straightforward, but we also had HPE's help setting them up and they gave us guidance.Other Solutions Considered:They evaluated solutions before I came on board. I believe they looked at Dell. We have a few Dell machines in our environment.Other Advice:It is a good investment and they should go for it.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Products The only issue I have with this machine is that you have to buy a bezel separately. Bezels should always come with the server systems and not be an additional charge. I have found that using the iLo port to do a windows install is also the best way to install Windows Server 2016 which these products work well with.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its scalability and clustering features are valuable. Valuable Features:* Scalability* Availability* It’s robust* Clustering* VirtualizationI can do with it almost everything within minutes.Improvements to My Organization:It reduced costs and time.Stability Issues:I would say it's not the top of the line, but it's near the top. We had some cracks in the past but stability is high. It's not outstanding, but it's high.Scalability Issues:For these kinds of features themselves, scalability is OK, but I expect much better performance from the scalability. There are some features that are quite slow and we have faced some issues with them in the past.Technical Support:We have used technical support twice and it was slow. I would give it a rank of 2/5. They are a big organization, but the support teams are very, very slow.Previous Solutions:Management decided to move to this solution. I inherited this from them. We were using a solution from IBM. We negotiated a better price with HPE.Other Advice:Make sure you negotiate yourself a very good service contract.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It provides redundancy, flexibility, and compatibility with operating systems. Valuable Features:The most valuable features are redundancy, flexibility, and compatibility with operating systems.Improvements to My Organization:The cost and the user experience are two of the main benefits.Room for Improvement:In the next release, I would like to see more redundancy of the CPU. That would be great.Stability Issues:The solution is very stable. We have had it for more than ten years, for several generations of the product. It's a very stable solution.Scalability Issues:The first version was not so scalable. Today’s versions are very scalable. We are very, very happy with this new version.Technical Support:We have a maintenance contract for support from the HPE ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/hpe-alm ) team around the world. We don't use it so much because the solution is very stable. When we do use it, the quality depends on the country. For example, in France, it works very well. However, when we try it in China, it can be a little bit tricky.Previous Solutions:We used another solution from another company. However, the cost vs. benefit was not so good. For that reason, we switched to HPE services.Initial Setup:I was involved with the setup. It was very easy to apply.Other Solutions Considered:We worked with Dell ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/dell-poweredge-r ) and IBM ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/ibm-rack-servers ), but we chose HPE.Other Advice:When selecting a vendor, it's good to have a real relationship in order to get a reliable, ascertainable, and a flexible solution. With this solution, you can close your eyes and you can use it because it's a very stable and personable tool. There is a real relationship between HPE and the customer, and they support you during all the steps you take.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
