HPE BladeSystem Review

The stability and support are most helpful to us.


What is most valuable?

The absolute number one thing that is the most valuable to me with all my HP products, BladeSystem included, is stability. They're all very stable. Secondly, HP offers excellent support.

How has it helped my organization?

It takes away our employees' worries about having to disconnect. We don't use HP's services, but in terms of hardware, we're happy with it.

What needs improvement?

I'd love to see more collaboration between HP, Cisco, and Microsoft. Those are the big names to us in the market. I'd like to see them work together and not compete and be nasty.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've been HP customers for 15 years now.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Deployment has been fine for us.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We've had no issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability comes without saying. HP has scalable storage and I'd like to thank them for requisitioning 3PAR as that's actually added good technology. They worked with us to migrate from old systems.

How are customer service and technical support?

Support is excellent and I can see a natural growth in their product. There is no decrease in quality from when we first used it 10 years ago to now. Everything is naturally growing up. Their features and return of the features and also accommodation of new accounts. That's something that they do.

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

HP has a heritage you know. As I say, we love their solution. We trust their capabilities to innovate.

What about the implementation team?

HP appreciates discussions. Whenever we've started new projects, they bring the sales guy, engineers, and senior solutions specialist. We sit and talk and we set objectives and accordingly we define the projects to execute and monitor.

What other advice do I have?

I don't think that there is anything else that's better.
