HPE ProCurve Review

Reasonably priced, easy to configure, and good technical support

What is our primary use case?

We use this switch as part of our network infrastructure and we also implement it for our clients.

What is most valuable?

This is a very durable product and the pricing is reasonable.

The GUI makes it easy to configure, manage, and work with.

What needs improvement?

Our customers are focused on features and generally, they would like to have a more feature-rich solution.

Better performance and more speed would be an improvement.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with HPE ProCurve for at least six or seven years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

HPE ProCurve is a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability depends on how the environment is designed and which modules are installed.

Our clients vary in size from small businesses to large government.

How are customer service and technical support?

When I first started, I needed a lot of support and I found them to be excellent. Overall, I am very satisfied with it.

How was the initial setup?

This solution is easy to install and configure. 

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

HPE ProCurve products are reasonably priced.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

There are similar products by other vendors and they are all priced similarly. 

What other advice do I have?

This is a good solution and I recommend it to our customers. Of course, some of them are locked into certain vendors, such as Cisco. When we introduce it to new customers using a PoC, they see that it is stable, easy to manage, and easy to use. It has worked well for us.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
