HPE BladeSystem Review

Alongside HP 3PAR and VMware hypervisor, it is easy to manage the server.

What is most valuable?

As it's modular (a small server) and has redundant hardware such as power, a SAN switch, and an interconnector, we do not need to worry when there is a failure.

How has it helped my organization?

Alongside HP 3PAR and VMware hypervisor, it is easy to manage the server.

What needs improvement?

It needs to have backward compatibile firmware. Also, the enclosure for Generation 9 canot be paired with Generation 1 or 6 so it takes more effort to perform the migration.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have used this product since Generation 1 in 2009. Currently, we have Generation 1, Generation 6, and Generation 7. We are currently using a Generation 9 for a refresh and to replace our Generation 1 and 6 (still in progress).

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

There were no issues with the deployment.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have had no issues with the stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's been able to scale for our needs.

How are customer service and technical support?

It's fast and they respond well.

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

We chose it because we are already familiar with HP products.

How was the initial setup?

The setup went smoothly.

What about the implementation team?

A team from HPE assisted me.

What other advice do I have?

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
