Cisco HyperFlex HX-Series Review

It can convert applications and improve performance


What is our primary use case?

It is to migrate our customer's solutions to a hyper-converged solution. This is the primary use case.

How has it helped my organization?

  • It can convert applications.
  • It introduces the perimeter of the data center. 
  • It improves performance.

What is most valuable?

  • There is the possibility to speed up data access.
  • It can be auto-managed from Cisco ACI.

What needs improvement?

Some of our customers do not want to adopt the Cisco ACI solution. They want to manage Cisco HyperFlex by integrating it with their own management solution.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is good.

How is customer service and technical support?

The technical support has been helpful. We are always able to get through to the right person.

Which solutions did we use previously?

Many customers already own a system for searching, e.g., an older UCS. They might be looking to integrate to a new tech solution or trying to build a new data center.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is simple.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is a bit expensive.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Most customers select this product based on the pricing.

What other advice do I have?

For customers in the private sector, this product can have a very high return on investment.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: Partner.
