HPE OneView Review

I like the ability that we can manage multiple enclosures as it's like one stop shopping.

What is most valuable?

I like the ability that we can manage multiple enclosures within OneView. It's like one stop shopping. You can manage all the server profiles, you can do everything from a blade enclosure standpoint using OneView. That's one of the things I like.

How has it helped my organization?

Benefits include ease of use and one stop shopping. Just one place to go to manage your infrastructure.

What needs improvement?

I can't think of any improvements off hand honestly. I know we tend to have issues with our server profiles. That's something that we've not really dug deep into, but that seems to be a problem. When we're changing server profiles and applying them we run into some red flags occasionally.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It seems to be a very stable product for us.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I totally think it's scalable. I don't know the limits, as far as the number of enclosures and that type of stuff that it can support, but for the size of our environment it's very scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

I haven't used the technical support.

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

We didn't have a solution previously. This was part of a larger product that we did for bringing in a three part storage, and migrating the new 3PAR and C7000 enclosures.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was straightforward.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend it. I think it sounds like that's the way that HP is driving everything, to the OneView type user interface. I know the management console for 3PAR is very similar to OneView, so I think they're just driving things to that type of user interface. They are also willing to work side by side with you.
