HPE ProLiant DL Servers Review

Rapid technical support, feature-rich, and easy to install

What is our primary use case?

We are using these servers as cluster nodes. We are running VM with Hyper-V.

What is most valuable?

This product is feature-rich and is easy to install.

What needs improvement?

Sometimes, there are connectivity issues and the server is not able to connect to our SAN. One example is when we reboot from SAN storage, we face issues such as not being able to detect the SAN port. After we installed two new physical hard disks, that issue went away. It should be more stable.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using the ProLiant DL Servers for the past four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

These servers are stable, although sometimes there are connectivity issues. We do plan to continue using them in the future.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is a scalable product. We have a five-node cluster with close to 3,500 users using different applications.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is rapid and very good. They take our calls immediately and resolve issues within four to five hours. The last time we had an issue, it was resolved immediately.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward and easy. It will take about an hour to deploy, from scratch.

What about the implementation team?

We deployed this product ourselves.

We have a data center team and a NOC team, with seven people who are managing these servers.

What other advice do I have?

This is a good product and I can recommend it.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
