HPE NonStop Review

They're innovative, proprietary servers with a strategic position in the marketplace. We're still going to phase them out.


What is most valuable?

They've been very reliable since we started using them in 1978, but we're going to replace them in a few years.

How has it helped my organization?

They're innovative, proprietary servers with a strategic position in the marketplace. We're still going to phase them out.

What needs improvement?

We have to replace the software because the software is key. In three or four years, we'll completely phase them out. Also, there are no knowledgeable people for this product. They're all in their 50's as no young people are interested in this technology.

I think HP NonStop is a very valuable platform, especially regarding HA of course, but its largest disadvantage is that it's a proprietary platform. That's one if the reasons that we're going to phase it out in due time. I can imagine that companies are and will be using the platform, and we'll use it for many more years as it's certainly a strategic platform for HPE, but on the other hand, I cannot imagine that any company will choose it as a new platform.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

We've never had issues with deployment.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have never had any issues with the stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We've always been able to scale it sufficiently.

How are customer service and technical support?

We're satisfied with the technical support of HP.

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

We've used it for so long that I don't think we've used another solution.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was so long ago that I don't know whether it was straightforward or complex.

What other advice do I have?

I would never advise someone to buy or to implement the new NonStop because it's hard to find skilled people.
