HPE ProLiant DL Servers Review

It is flexible and stable. Technical support is efficient.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are its flexibility and stability.

How has it helped my organization?

The main benefit was the low price, so it saved us a lot of money.

What needs improvement?

We are not looking for new features in the DL260. Instead, we are looking at Synergy.

Compared to blade servers, it could use more flexibility to expand with new features, and to connect new storage systems and so on. It’s not so easy and not always possible.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have had no downtime. It is generally up.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We haven’t really had to scale the product.

How are customer service and technical support?

Most of the time, technical support was efficient and very fast. Usually, it required a hardware replacement, so it worked every time.

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

We generally switched from Novell to Microsoft; and then we used HPE. We also previously used Compaq, which I think was part of HPE.

We never looked at Dell or IBM.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was very simple.

What other advice do I have?

Buy Synergy. :)

Look for the flexibility of the system; and get everything from one partner.

The most important criteria when we choose a vendor is the range of products available. HPE has a huge range of products: switches, servers, storage systems, and so on.
