HPE ProLiant DL Servers Review

Allows us to equalize the direct servers of the VDI.

What is most valuable?

It allows us to utilize the servers for VDI. The system supports two GPU's.

How has it helped my organization?

It was part of a bigger solution, which is VDI. We are able to publish desktops for design engineers whose requirements are continuously changing on a weekly basis.

What needs improvement?

I would like to look at Synergy for the new servers. It will be out in June or July. The Synergy Streamer Composer is one of the powerful features that Synergy has.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is pretty stable. We had a pretty good experience with HPE so far.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability shouldn't be an issue. We can have 20 servers in one rack.

How are customer service and technical support?

I've had good experience with HPE support. the support engineers are knowledgeable and customer service oriented.

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

We knew we needed a new solution because of the latest requirements. Nowadays, IT is very involved with the business. We try our best to enable them to do their job in an efficient way. We had a different hardware platform before, and support was not at the level we've expected.

The most important thing when selecting a vendor is service, regardless of price. We look more for partnership and service in that sense.

How was the initial setup?

The installation was straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

Our vendor implemented the solution. We were involved in the design and planning.

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

Pricing is not bad. They have competitive pricing, and the licensing model is simple to understand.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated few other technologies. We chose HPE because we've had good experience with them. I worked with them in the past and so far, HPE has proven to be reliable.

What other advice do I have?

Be careful when selecting the vendor. It has to be a partnership. If the vendor can't deliver what is expected, it's going to be a nightmare. It's going to affect your operations.
