HPE BladeSystem Review

It allows organisations to grow their clusters and environments by adding more blades to the enclosure.

Valuable Features:

The simplified design of the blades ensures a effeccient and repair including a replace in the event of a failure.

Improvements to My Organization:

Improves capacity and aids organizations in adapting to their growth.

Room for Improvement:

The profiles needs a complete rework, the way the profiles and networks are assigned to the blades isn’t user friendly and is often a hindrance

Stability Issues:

We've had no issues with the performance.

Scalability Issues:

Excellent scalability, good flexibility from both a vertical and horizontal perspective.

Other Advice:

 Consider implementing HP One-View into your environment to assist in addressing the complicated admin in some areas. Implement where possible a Use Standard to the chassis level, i.e. 1 chassis for hyper-v, 1 for SQL, etc... Segregate the networking set to the network where possible and avoid using the chassis profiles.
