HPE BladeSystem Review

Since it's modular, we're able to replace parts as needed. Pricing can always be improved.

Valuable Features

Being modular and being able to replace parts as needed, is easy without taking systems down.

Improvements to My Organization

Less real estate - that's pretty much it. Manpower and time, and even resources, electricity. Bills go down because of BladeSystems.

Room for Improvement

Better pricing is always a plus.

Stability Issues

It does its job, I haven't had any major problems with it.

Scalability Issues

It's scalable.

Customer Service and Technical Support

I haven't used it but my colleagues who have haven't had any issues with them.

Other Advice

It's pretty scalable, but then again, it's pretty old. It's not as scalable as the Cisco Blades that we currently have, but I'm not going to knock it because of that, it's just because it's old it doesn't have all the technology that Cisco has right now.

Do your homework. Shop around and look at other vendors. Don't just look at one specific blade system.
