HPE Ethernet Switches Review

HP works well in small scale. HP needs to clean up the config files.

Valuable Features

It used to be cheap for access switching - I'm not sure if that's still the case today.

Room for Improvement

Security and routing handling - also they need to clean up the config files.

Use of Solution

Since 2003.

Deployment Issues

As far as switching goes no, I haven't had any issues with deployment.

Stability Issues

MSM controllers can lose parts of its config in updates.

Scalability Issues

HP works well in small scale - large scale is not good with HP.

What do you mean, more exactly, by cleaning up the config files? For me, the config files are easy to use.
