HPE OneView Review

Automation allows several tasks to be rolled up into one task.

What is most valuable?

The automation is the big winner for people who use OneView. It allows several tasks to be rolled up into one very simple task.

How has it helped my organization?

It obviously saves me resource time, resource units. Not as many people are needed to do mundane tasks. That's where the automation comes in.

What needs improvement?

From our perspective, we don’t know of any needed improvements. Everything that was advertised to us has been available, was available and does work.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We find it quite stable. Most HPE solutions are stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is probably the biggest influence for choosing OneView. It doesn't matter if you're trying to manage 10 servers or 10,000 servers.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have an account manager who is very good in this regard and any sort of technical support that we do need, we have engineers that are assigned to our account. They are always very, very helpful. Very efficient.

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

We didn’t have any previous solutions. It was just a correct step for us to take at the time. It was the next viable solution that we wanted in that space.

How was the initial setup?

People on my team were involved in it and it was probably as smooth as we anticipated.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We spoke to several different vendors, including Dell and Hitachi. It came down to the whole idea of the partnership that we'd built up with HPE over the last 15 or 20 years.

What other advice do I have?

I think you need to talk to as many vendors in the marketplace as you can. Listen to what they say and make an informed decision.

When looking for a vendor, we’re probably the same as everybody else. Cost is very important. I think the local relationship that we have with our HPE account manager and engineers within the island of Ireland makes a big difference.
