Product Reviews
Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by It provides repository management for firmware. I would like to choose what I want to monitor from the server. Valuable Features:The most valuable features of the product are health control, keeping an eye on the status of the server and the repository management for firmware.I can download the SPP from HP and upload it to OneView ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/hpe-oneview ). After that, I can add servers to that SPP and choose to deploy it to the servers.Improvements to My Organization:It provides a better control of what is installed on each server. Now, we have control over the hardware status and what is happening on the hardware in regards to hardware failures and other alarmsIn the new version, we're going to get warranty status and automatic failure reports to HPE. These benefits we are going to use for sure.Room for Improvement:I would like to choose what I want monitored from the server. I want to disable features like performance monitoring, utilization, and power control. They could add more customization of the SPPs in the system, so I can upload the SPP but then select what I want or don't want in the SPP after I've uploaded it into the system.Another area of improvement could be in the report functionality by providing more customization so that I can create customized reports since I like to use the ones besides what HPE wants me to show.Stability Issues:We have had different stability issues. We have experienced a lot of downtime on it. We have used this product from the first version up until what is available right now and have noticed that a lot of the functions have stopped working suddenly with no reason. This was now in version 2.0.7. Then we maxed out the amount of alarms and after that the system crashed. However, HPE has cleaned this out.For the last four weeks or so, we have had no issues. We still have version 2.7 but we are planning to upgrade to version 3.0.Scalability Issues:In the earlier versions, scalability was not that good but it has improved in the newer versions. The appliance is designed more for bigger environments and the whole GUI is faster than the old ones.Technical Support:The technical support is okay. It's better when I come to the second level; the first level isn't so good. They should know more about how OneView works and not just read out the standard stuff and rules from a paper because no customer is the same. In addition, when I call them, I have downloaded my part of the analysis and I just need help to find out how to fix the error.Previous Solutions:We have used HPE before, i.e., the old system. We have had HPE from G4-G9We have stated to use HPE Blade systems C7000 ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/hpe-bladesystem ).Initial Setup:I was involved in the setup process. When we started the process, it was easy to install. It worked right after we opened some firewall ports; everything worked okay. It was okay in regards to service and management; nothing difficult about that.Implementation Team:I implemented oneview my self, but had some help from HPE.HPEOther Advice:You should start small in size . Initially, start with 5-10 servers and have that running for a couple of months to see how it works. After which you can deploy it on everything else. In other words, start small, work it out and then get bigger.OneviewFrom my previous experience with stability, the system needs to prove that it is stable now and that the functions are working better than the earlier versions.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by It can implement automation and write automation scripts. Sometimes it gets slow. Valuable Features:The most valuable feature is the capability it provides to implement automation and write automation scripts. This is what the world is going after.Improvements to My Organization:We deliver faster now.Room for Improvement:Sometimes it gets slow, so it doesn’t always perform well. I think it's a work in progress.Stability Issues:Every product has it's bugs, but they are getting fixed.Technical Support:Technical support was very useful. For me, when you are choosing a product, good technical support is a must.Previous Solutions:We were using HPE SIM. That's fairly buggy. It's okay for monitoring hardware, but it's a bit of a drama for other things.Initial Setup:The initial setup was straightforward, but partially complex. It was complex in previous versions because not all the online features were available, but currently I think it should be straightforward with version 3.0.Other Advice:I think this is a very good solution if you want to have your compliance up-to-date, directly available, and you want to automate.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: January 4, 2017
Rated 4 out of 5 by We now have standardized server templates and partially automated deployments. Valuable Features:We chose OneView when we decided to do a technology refresh on our data center. At that point we were buying over 40 HPE enclosures and 500 blades and we really wanted some kind of automation technology to help us manage and deploy that infrastructure at speed. We're a kind of company that does things fairly quickly with short notice.We expected that we would need to deploy the new equipment fairly quickly andthere was a lot of pressure to get stuff done as soon as the decision was made to purchase. OneView allowed us to accelerate the base configuration far faster and more accurately than ever before with manual configuration procedures.When we came a year later to extending the infrastructure having OneView allowed us to quickly extend with the same configuration deployed in hours rather than days.Improvements to My Organization:OneView has allowed us to standardize a lot. Prior to that, everything was done on a individual basis. So we now have standard templates for our servers and partially automated deployments. The configuration quality of new infrastructure has been a problem in the past.Also, we benefit from improved monitoring,compliance and updates. That whole tool set has come together into OneView. We're a small team of six managing a large environment and it's probably saved around a person's time every two weeks; a day a week or half-day a week of their time just in trolling through things looking for logs and such.Room for Improvement:At a recent conference, I spoke to the guys in the CDA booth about what's coming and there's quite a few features in there already that I was looking for. I've asked for some better facilities around the management of alerts. The system currently has 75,000 alerts that are either being acknowledged or some are active, and there's not a simple way of selecting a whole filtered list and then closing them off and deleting them. So one of my bits of feedback already to the development guys is around alert management.Also, I've spoken to them about some more role-based access control for the new Oneview global dashboard tool that was recently launched. We could do it in OneView itself, that's capable of doing role-based control to some extent, but it’s quite minimum in the dashboard tool. It only provides basic functions like administrate, modify, and read only. We'd like to see that broadened and then I'd like to see that pushed up into the OneView dashboard, but I believe in recent versions of Oneview this is also being improved with resource scopes .Use of Solution:Since 2014.Deployment Issues:No.Stability Issues:The product is really pretty stable now, pretty good. We've had minor issues, so if I were going to rate it either a 4/5 or 5/5, I'd go for a 4/5. We've had some bugs in terms of things not quite working when we've done upgrades. But we've had good support from HPE.Scalability Issues:Scalability wise, it meets our companies needs. We were very close to the initial limits of the product when it first came out. Those limits have been raised now, but we've not grown into that arena, so we're okay.Technical Support:We have used technical support extensively. We have escalated some issues back to developers and had been supported that way as well when the issues have gone beyond the basic kind of issues. I would rate support itself 4/5. Cool handling and just getting to the level of where you need to be, probably a 3/5. I think that's really because we tend to do a lot of triage ourselves. We've got guys that are not ones to pick up the phone straight away to call technical support. So we need to push them into that and to use technical support more. Technical supports always gets us there, but it takes time.Previous Solutions:I was using all the standard HPE tools that come as standard with the infrastructure itself, such as the built in Onboard Administrator, Virtual Connect Manager and Service pack for Proliant. The scale of the refresh we were doing and the time frame we were trying to do it in led us to OneView. It allowed us to merge all these seperate point management solutions into the one tool for managing and updating the hardware/firmware.Initial Setup:Initial setup was very straightforward. OneView is a very straightforward piece of software to use. I would rate 'ease of use' very highly.Implementation Team:In house.Other Advice:I would advise others to be sure about what you want to get out of the tool and that you understand its limitations. Definitely go through a demonstration yourself. It's very hard to bring a crosswalk, what's its capable of in just documentation and the like.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Using this product, we can create one trunk and push it to all of the blades and the enclosures. They could improve the speed of pushing out a profile. Valuable Features:I think ease of use is the most valuable feature. It saves us a huge amount of time. Normally, when we go and add a VLAN, we have to do it in a per-enclosure and per-blade basis. But when we use OneView, we can create one trunk and we can push it to all of the blades and the enclosures, and that saves us a huge amount of time.Improvements to My Organization:Having one pane of glass is another benefit. We’ve got an entire blade system from one pane of glass. We’re able to see any alerts or any issues from there.It has just saved us a huge amount of time, which lets us look at other things, more productive things.Room for Improvement:There is room for improvement, especially with the speed of things. If we push a profile out, it takes several minutes; if we could improve the speed of pushing out a profile.I think we want to get a 3PAR integrated with OneView and see what we can do with that. That's our next target.Stability Issues:We haven't had any issues with it. We have only had it for a few months now, but we haven't had any issues. It works fine.Scalability Issues:I think the only problem we have is when we move an enclosure we've already got that hasn't got OneView. That takes a bit of planning. We have to empty that enclosure and then add it in. There is a bit of work to do, but anything new goes straight in. It's not a problem.Rather than just import it into OneView – apparently it loses all the settings that we've got – we'll empty that enclosure, pop the blades into another enclosure, and then import that into OneView. Then, we move everything back after we've done that.Technical Support:I don't think we have used technical support for OneView.Previous Solutions:Before OneView, we would just log on to the onboard administrator (OA) and the virtual connects (VCs) directly.Other Solutions Considered:I think we only looked at OneView. We knew what we wanted to do.The most important criteria to me when choosing a vendor and a product are customer references, how have other people have found it. Price is always an important one as well.Other Advice:I'm not sure what the other competitors are out there, to be perfectly honest. It works fine for us. As I’ve mentioned, it saves us a huge amount of time whenever we are setting up new systems. I recommend it.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by If you can make sure that you understand the workarounds for your challenges, then OneView is very stable. Valuable Features:* Automation* Simplicity of use* Time saving* Structured* Balanced network applicationImprovements to My Organization:For a company like ours, we need to make sure that all of our data and customers are protected. OneView allows us to do that by reducing our stress and time.Room for Improvement:For future releases of OneView, I would say, let me control my cloud. Let me do stuff from the command line myself. I would love to be able to do simple things from my end with a bit of space to adjust my preferences for myself. Perhaps open the command line for Windows and let me work with it.Stability Issues:It is stable if you are able to understand how it works. You can’t pretend to come to this new style of IT and have it work the way you did with old technologies. If you can make sure that you understand the workarounds for your challenges, then OneView is very stable.Scalability Issues:As long as you’re running OneView on your private cloud and you have control of it, it's scalable.Technical Support:I don’t like HP support very much, as they tend to transfer me to random places that don’t help me very much.Previous Solutions:I used to have a consulting company using open source software for healthcare for small businesses. I wanted to ensure that security was paramount in my business. After I did a risk analysis for a company, I recommended that they move to a private cloud, which was a huge project for a small company like theirs.HP was their vendor, and they helped them move towards the solution they needed. OneView came out then, and so I checked out HP’s product line for my needs at the time as well.Initial Setup:It’s very straightforward but, unfortunately, not very user friendly. When you’re dealing with private infrastructure, it will always take time to implement from the get-go.Other Advice:First, that it’s simple. It saves me time and is easy to use. It releases stress for me, and since I’m working with federal law, I really need to make sure that all of my customers and their data are protected properly.Go to the field and see what the clients are going through. Don’t just use case studies; check for the real stuff. What are others struggling with, and why is that important, and will this affect us? Make sure that vendors can solve real-life scenarios because that’s what you’re struggling with as well.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:Partners June 18, 2015
