HPE ProCurve Review

A convenient interface that is easy to use, and the technical support is good

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is for switching. We also use it for an iSCSI device to support storage and networking.

What is most valuable?

The web page interface is very convenient and easy to use for setting up your feedback loops.

What needs improvement?

The dashboards could be improved and made more interesting.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using HPE ProCurve for more than ten years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is very stable, we have not experienced any issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This solution is scalable.

On average, we have twenty users and two administrators. We have a very small team.

How are customer service and technical support?

I had contacted technical support at one time when my firmware update was not going very well. They were able to fix it.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was rather straightforward.

The length of time it takes to deploy depends on your architecture, and what you want to set up, but normally it takes a couple of days to set it all up.

Maintenance requirments are only a couple of hours per month.

What about the implementation team?

We had the help of our team to implement the solution.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The purchasing cost a few years ago for two units was approx €5,000.

What other advice do I have?

This solution is good and it's solid. It does its job. 

I would recommend this solution because it's affordable, scalable, and it is everything you need.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
