HPE ConvergedSystem Review

Good user interface, performance, and backup capability

What is our primary use case?

Our HP infrastructure is used as the host system to run our VMware ESXi.

How has it helped my organization?

The biggest improvement that we have seen is with respect to our backups.

What is most valuable?

The best feature of this solution is the backup system. I have found it to be particularly good because we've been able to restore on a file by file basis.

The user interface, reporting, and management are good, and we are quite happy with the performance.

This solution integrates well with other products and applications.

What needs improvement?

The interface is not fully integrated with the ESXi, which is something that could be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using the HPE ConvergedSystem for about two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We believe that this is a scalable solution, although we haven't had to extend it yet. One of the reasons that we would have chosen it, however, is so that we could scale when necessary.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support from HPE is excellent.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was complex, but that's the nature of this type of solution.

What about the implementation team?

We had help from a vendor with our implementation.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did evaluate other options before choosing HPE ConvergedSystem. However, I was not involved in the decision so I do not know what the deciding factors were.

What other advice do I have?

This is a good solution and it seems to have everything that we need.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
