Sr. Systems Administrator at a financial services firm with 201-500 employees
For me, the AIX operating system is one of the best things because I'm a Unix guy and I like the flexibility of the operating system. It's very powerful. One of the key features is that the performance is among the best. But also on the security side, we get regular security patch updates and system hardening. There are free tools available to harden the system. It's very unique. View full review »
Takue Chaparadza says in a Dell EMC PowerEdge Rack Servers review
Pre-Sales Engineer at a tech services company
* Its ease of use. The GUI is accessible and everything is pretty much upfront. You don't get lost in navigating between the tabs. * I also like a feature they call iDRAC. It's a feature that allows you remotely power on and off the server. * It's got a power plug. * It's also almost a tool-less type of server, in the sense that when you want to open it up and change a few components inside, you can do so without a screwdriver or any aid of another tool. * It also has a nice front panel, it looks nice in front.

The main criteria I look for in all vendors are: * On-site service for the hardware. * The warranty period, i.e. how long the warranty is. * The ability of the product itself, i.e. the specs and the lifecycle of the product. * The hardware should be cutting edge. I would like to see the lifecycle at seven to ten years. I want to work on the latest CPUs as much as possible, i.e. maintaining cutting edge standards, but still optimally priced. We needed a benchmarking HP server, but since we are a small company, we went to hardware resellers. Dell EMC had some programs for SMBs and we were able to have direct interaction with them in India. We were able to get a very reasonable price for the same product which otherwise through the reseller network was extremely costly. We found that arrangement from Dell EMC to be slightly better than compared to other vendors and why we did not choose them. View full review »

IT Infrastructure Manager at a comms service provider with 51-200 employees
There is a lot of processors, I am only using half of what I need. In addition, they update the ILO to V. 5 so maintenance remains very easy. You can easily monitor everything from office needs, storage, performance, power supply, and temperature. View full review »

Internal dual SD module (IDSDM) for embedded hypervisors, such as VMware ESXi; the advantages are as follows: * allows available drive bays to be used more productively * inexpensive compared to the traditional setup (two disk drives and a RAID controller) * reliable, since SD cards can be mirrored and the mirror can be rebuilt in a few minutes after replacing a corrupted card View full review »

Claudio De Plato says in a HPE Apollo review
Network End Data Center Architect at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
It's a compact system. We usually use three blades for two-rack units, and with enough storage, it's really a small system with a powerful CPU, powerful hard drives, powerful disks. So it provides enough performance in terms storage value. And the internal network, we are also very happy with it. So, for the branches for us, it's perfect. View full review »
Daniel Polombo says in a HPE Apollo review
IT Architect
It's pretty flexible. You can choose how much storage you put on the server. You can have one to three nodes, depending on whether you want more CPU or storage. And we can use the same platform for several use cases: Hadoop, Ceph, and we are considering the server for another use case right now. It's a single solution, we only have to integrate it once and we can use it for several technologies. View full review »

Derek Traynor says in a HPE Apollo review
Data Center Manager at Maples And Calder
It's really very clever the way it manages to hide the disks away. This idea of pulling out the little trays, I just think that's really, really clever. It's very reliable. I haven't had a single failure at all in the year and a half; not the slightest problem with it. It's been a pretty good product so far. View full review »
