HPE BladeSystem Review

We're able to scale by adding more blades into our organized environment.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that we're also using HP software, so the BladeSystem fits together nicely with that.

How has it helped my organization?

We use a lot of HP products, in fact, and so HP is a big partner of ours. It makes things in our organization run more efficiently and with less interruption when we run the BladeSystem with our other HP solutions.

What needs improvement?

There could be some improvements that have to do with CPU architecture, but that's not really an HP part. There's some virtualization we'd like to do that would need better CPU design. It is, however, a little bit difficult to move reams above BladeSystem.

For how long have I used the solution?

We're using the HP Blade C7000 and BL460 plates. As connectivity modules, we're using FlexFabric.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

It's deployed fine for us.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The only thing that would be defective or would need to be replaced is just the discs. The plates just keep running and running. They're pretty stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have lot of space to go with new blades and the whole environment is organized, so it's really easy to put in the new hosts, or new Blades in this case, into the new regular machines.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We switched because HP is stable and reliable.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is always straightforward.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?

C7000 & BL460
