HPE Ethernet Switches Review

We use it to connect to our HP BladeSystem, which enables us to communicate. We're not a very big company, so this is really important to us.


Valuable Features

It's the only connection point we use to connect to our network. We really rely on it for that because we don't use anything else.

Improvements to My Organization

We use it to connect to our HP BladeSystem, which enables us to communicate. We're not a very big company, so this is really important to us.

Room for Improvement

Although it connects to our BladeSystem, we still have problems with the overall integration with the switches, BladeSystem, and 3PAR. So it's important to us that that integration is improved so that our entire infrastructure of HP solutions works together.

Use of Solution

We've used it for three-four years now.

Deployment Issues

We haven't had deployment issues.

Stability Issues

We haven't had problems with instability.

Scalability Issues

We have around 40 VLANs and two sites that are about 10 kilometers apart. That's a lot of volume across a long distance, and the switches have no problem with it.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Even with Level-1 service, they're very helpful.

Initial Setup

It was complex, but HP did it for us.

Implementation Team

HP did everything for us.

Other Solutions Considered

We were looking at not only the network piece, but all parts of our infrastructure, including solutions from Dell, IBM, and EMC.

Other Advice

Make sure you plan everything, deciding you want to manage and how the system should work. You want to be able to do just one config and forget about it.
