HPE Enterprise Routers Review

A scalable solution that helps provide high availability to our clusters

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution to build private clouds for the Slovak government. 

How has it helped my organization?

These routers help us to provide high availability to our clusters. This is helpful because we develop custom software that integrates with them.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is stability.

What needs improvement?

The price is expensive and could be made more competitive.

Better management tools are needed.

The integration with other products should be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using HP Enterprise Routers for more than ten years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is okay. We haven't had any big issues with the network.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

These routers scale enough for our purposes and we haven't had any problem. Our client has about 4,500 users.

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

We have also worked with enterprise routers from Cisco. Those are used almost exclusively by government departments because of the price. They are very expensive.

We also use Huawei routers for smaller solutions.

What about the implementation team?

Our internal team provides first, second, and third-level support to our customers.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

In this Slovak market, this is an expensive product.

What other advice do I have?

Quality-wise, this product is somewhere between Huawei and Cisco. It is more stable the Huawei and cheaper than Cisco. It is a product that I recommend.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Hybrid Cloud
