What is our primary use case?
It is mainly an x86 Intel server. There are some versions of AMD processors as well. You can use it for many purposes. You can use it as a web server, a backup server, a database server, or an application server. You can use it for any main purpose for which you need a server.
It is mainly on-premises, but you can also deploy it in a cloud.
What is most valuable?
It is very stable. This is the feedback that I'm getting from my customers for the hardware. It is also 100% scalable.
HPE is also very specialized when it comes up to the server industry. It is not only about the rack servers; it is also about the blade servers. They were the first ones to bring these to the market more than ten years ago.
What needs improvement?
It has something called WorldView. They should do some enhancement over WorldView to run an operating system as a code. Such a feature would be amazing for running multiple servers. They are already working on this, and they can enhance the existing versions for this.
It should also be cheaper. It is currently expensive.
For how long have I used the solution?
I have been selling this solution for almost six years.
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
What do I think about the scalability of the solution?
It is 100% scalable. We have about a hundred customers.
How are customer service and technical support?
I don't directly get in touch with them, but I haven't heard anything bad about it.
How was the initial setup?
The initial setup is not complicated for HPE or any other server.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?
It is expensive. Its price should be better.
What other advice do I have?
I would recommend this solution. I would rate HPE ProLiant DL Servers an eight out of ten.
