HPE ProLiant DL Servers Review

We have standardized our network on this equipment, so it makes it easy for maintenance and repairs.


What is most valuable?

They've been stable and we have got good performance out of them.

How has it helped my organization?

We have standardized our network on this equipment, so it makes it easy for maintenance, repairs and just standardizing our images.

What needs improvement?

It works well for us, but they should bring the price down.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We haven't had any problems with the newer equipment. As this stuff ages, things happen.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We cluster them so they scale beautifully with the way we do it.

How are customer service and technical support?

I'm not impressed as you always go to the first-level support first, and it just takes forever to get to somebody that really can help you. We've already read the manual before we called support, but they read the manual to you again. They are responsive when you actually do get through to someone.

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

We've used IBM. We got away from IBM just because of the sheer cost for maintenance.

How was the initial setup?

It's very straightforward.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We're strictly HPE at the moment so we haven't looked at anyone else.

What other advice do I have?

I'd encourage them to use it. For the price and the functionality you get out of it, they work out great.
