HPE BladeSystem Review

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

Valuable Features:

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

Improvements to 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.

Room for 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.

Use of Solution:

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

Deployment Issues:

It's deployed fine for us.

Stability Issues:

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.

Scalability Issues:

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.

Previous Solutions:

We switched because HP is stable and reliable.

Initial Setup:

The initial setup is always straightforward.
